Dedicated Hosting Services Clarified

Free and paid shared plans are among the most famous website hosting solutions on the market. They are perfect for small-size sites that do not necessitate lots of system resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for resource-swallowing websites with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful solution is demanded. If you are seeking a dependable, hi-end web hosting solution that can cope with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your finest option.

Tackle the Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web server hosting solution, you rent an entire machine whose resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more central processing units operating at a given speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration designed to handle intense load and specific software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be visible on the Internet.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting distributor, or by the customer, depending on the specific dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the side managing the machine has access to a software tool to restart it at any time. Management is carried out through a hosting Control Panel tool that enables you to monitor the processes running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Given hosts offer dedicated hosting utilizing one particular OS, whereas others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the provider provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software applications needed in order to run a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), 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 bring the web site online. Most web hosts provide root privileges, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Particular script-powered platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Plenty of e-commerce scripts, for instance, involve such a precondition, and being granted complete server root access to the dedicated hosting server is key for setting up a web shop. Other hosting service providers do not provide complete server root access, but help the client activate the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes complete root access.
