What Precisely is Dedicated Servers Hosting?

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most famous hosting products on the market. They are applicable for small web sites that do not demand a lot of system resources and do not draw that many website visitors, but for heavy resource-absorbing web sites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you would like to have an advanced, top-drawer shared hosting platform that can handle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated server is your most excellent alternative.

Handle the Heavy Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server web hosting service, you lease a whole web hosting server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processors running at a particular speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration intended to tackle high load and specific software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites accommodated on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting provider, or by the client, depending on the concrete dedicated server package. In either case, the party managing the web hosting server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given moment. Management is carried out through a Control Panel graphical user interface that allows you to keep track of the services running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Specific hosting providers offer dedicated servers using one specific OS, while others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows server, for example, and will not work on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the web hosting provider offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software apps required to manage a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your files and take the website online. Most web hosting firms give root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and change any settings. Given script-driven platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Many e-commerce scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and receiving full server root access to the dedicated server is crucial for developing a web shop. Other hosting firms do not grant full server root privileges, but help the client install the needed software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full root privileges.
