Dedicated Hosting Unmasked

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widely used web hosting products on the market. They are perfect for small web portals that do not request plenty of system resources and do not get that many website visitors, but for resource-devouring sites with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful solution is needed. If you are searching for a powerful, hi-end hosting platform that can handle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your most appropriate option.

Tackle the Heavy Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you rent a whole web hosting server whose resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors functioning at a particular speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration designed to cope with intense load and some software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the websites hosted on it to be accessible on the web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting distributor, or by the client, on the basis of the particular dedicated server package. In either case, the party handling the dedicated web server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given moment. Management is carried out through a CP tool that allows you to check the services running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Some providers offer dedicated servers using one specific OS, whereas others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not perform on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, learn what the hosting vendor provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications needed in order to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the hosting server, you can upload your files and bring the web site online. Most web hosting providers provide full root access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated server and change any settings. Certain script-based platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Lots of shopping cart software scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and receiving complete root access to the dedicated server is key for developing an online store. Other hosts do not offer complete root-level access, but help the customer activate the needed software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which offers root-level access.
