What Does Dedicated Hosting Represent?

Free and paid shared plans are among the most commonly used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are appropriate for small-size web sites that do not demand lots of resources and do not have that many viewers, but for heavy resource-absorbing web portals with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful platform is necessary. If you desire a rock solid, cutting-edge web hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your finest alternative.

Handle the Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated solution, you lease a whole physical server whose resources will be used only by your web sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processing units functioning at a particular speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A web server is in fact a computer with hardware meant to handle heavy load and given software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the sites accommodated on it to be available on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the provider, or by the customer, based on the particular dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the side administering the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given moment. Administration is done via a CP interface that permits you to keep track of the services running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are different hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosts provide dedicated hosting using one given Operating System, whereas others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites request a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based sites using MySQL databases will run on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated hosting server, discover what the hosting service provider provides and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software needed to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated machine, you can upload your website files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting distributors provide root privileges, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Some script-driven platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. A lot of e-commerce scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and having root access to the dedicated hosting server is essential for developing a web store. Other hosts do not grant root privileges, but help the customer install the required software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full root privileges.
