Description of Dedicated Hosting

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widely used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are okay for small-scale web sites that do not need a lot of resources and do not receive that many visitors, but for huge web pages with many 1000's of website visitors, a more advanced solution is demanded. If you need a robust, top-quality web hosting solution that can deal with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your finest alternative.

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

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease an entire physical server whose resources will be utilized solely by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors running at a certain speed, some amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A web server is in fact a computer with hardware meant to tackle high load and given software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the sites stored on it to be available on the Internet.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting company, or by the customer, depending on the particular dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the party handling the dedicated web server has access to a software platform to restart it at any specific moment. Administration is done through a web hosting Control Panel GUI that enables you to keep track of the processes running on the web server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Certain web hosting corporations offer dedicated hosting using one particular Operating System, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, learn what the hosting vendor offers and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms required to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the web hosting server, you can upload your website files and take the website online. The majority of hosting vendors offer full server root access, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Given script-based platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Various e-commerce software scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and having complete root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is decisive for developing an online shop. Other web hosting service providers do not give root access, but help the customer install the needed software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which offers full root access.
