How Dedicated Hosting Works

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most extensively used web hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are appropriate for small-scale online portals that do not require plenty of system resources and do not attract that many website visitors, but for high resource-demanding sites with many thousands of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you are searching for a rock steady, top-class hosting platform that can cope with even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your best choice.

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

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you lease an entire physical machine whose resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors functioning at a particular speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to tackle intense load and certain software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites accommodated on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting distributor, or by the client, depending on the given dedicated server package. In either instance, the side handling the dedicated server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific moment. Management is carried out via a Control Panel tool that allows you to check the services running on the hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting service providers provide dedicated servers using one specific OS, while others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated server, discover what the web hosting company provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software apps needed to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the server, you can upload your web site files and get the site online. Most web hosting vendors give full server root access, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Particular script-powered software platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for instance, include such a requirement, and receiving complete root-level access to the dedicated server is vital for developing an online shop. Other web hosting companies do not give root access, but help the customer activate the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which includes root-level access.
