What Precisely are Dedicated Hosting Servers?

Free and paid shared plans are among the most famous hosting products on the marketplace. They are appropriate for small web portals that do not necessitate plenty of system resources and do not get that many viewers, but for resource-devouring web pages with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced solution is required. If you want a stable, topflight shared hosting platform that can deal with even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your perfect alternative.

Tackle the Intense Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated solution, you lease an entire web hosting server whose resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs operating at a certain speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated web server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration designed to handle heavy load and certain software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites accommodated on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Servers Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting distributor, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated server package. In either instance, the party administering the hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular time. Administration is carried out via a hosting Control Panel GUI that enables you to keep track of the tasks running on the web hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Certain hosting corporations provide dedicated servers utilizing one specific Operating System, while others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows server, for instance, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the hosting provider provides and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software platforms needed to manage a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the web hosting server, you can upload your web site files and get the site online. The majority of hosting suppliers offer root access, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and modify any settings. Specific script-based platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to perform. Different shopping cart software scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and getting root access to the dedicated hosting server is key for establishing an online store. Other web hosting companies do not offer complete server root access, but help the customer install the required software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes root access.
