What Actually is Dedicated Servers Web Hosting?

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most famous web hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are perfect for small-scale online portals that do not necessitate lots of system resources and do not get that many web site visitors, but for big online portals with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you are seeking a rock steady, hi-end shared web hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server web hosting is your perfect choice.

Handle the Heavy Load Generated by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease a whole machine whose resources will be used only by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more CPUs functioning at a particular speed, a particular amount of memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web server is indeed a computer with hardware aimed to tackle intense load and some software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the websites accommodated on it to be reachable online.

Managed Dedicated Servers Web Hosting Services

A dedicated web hosting server can be managed either by the web host, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated server web hosting package. In either situation, the party handling the machine has access to a software tool to restart it at any specific moment. Administration is carried out through a CP graphical interface that enables you to supervise the services running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

There are various web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Some web hosting companies provide dedicated server web hosting running one given Operating System, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated web hosting server, find out what the hosting supplier provides and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server includes all the software apps required to manage a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the hosting server, you can upload your files and get the site online. Most providers grant root-level access, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated web hosting server and alter any settings. Certain script-powered software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Many shopping cart software scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and receiving full root access to the dedicated web hosting server is critical for managing an online storefront. Other hosting suppliers do not provide complete server root access, but help the customer activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with root privileges.
