Dedicated Hosting Services Unveiled

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widespread website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are okay for small-scale online portals that do not need a lot of resources and do not get that many visitors, but for resource-requiring online portals with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful solution is needed. If you desire an advanced, top-notch web hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your best choice.

Handle the Intense Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated service, you rent an entire hosting server whose resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a certain speed, some amount of memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration meant to cope with intense load and given software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the sites hosted on it to be reachable on the Internet.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting provider, or by the customer, based on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either case, the party handling the physical machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific time. Management is done via a CP graphical user interface that permits you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosts offer dedicated hosting utilizing one particular Operating System, while others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites request a Windows server, for instance, and will not run on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, discover what the hosting vendor offers and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software required in order to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you get the dedicated server, you can upload your web files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting vendors give full root access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Specific script-based platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Different shopping cart scripts, for instance, include such a requirement, and gaining complete root access to the dedicated hosting server is critical for kicking off a web store. Other web hosting vendors do not grant complete server root access, but help the customer install the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting service, which includes root privileges.
