What Indeed are Dedicated Servers?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are good for small-scale websites that do not request lots of system resources and do not draw that many viewers, but for heavy resource-demanding online portals with many 1000's of viewers, a more powerful platform is demanded. If you would like to have a stable, top-class hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your perfect option.

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

With the dedicated web hosting service, you rent an entire hosting server whose resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processing units running at a certain speed, a specific amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated server is actually a computer with hardware meant to tackle high load and certain software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the websites stored on it to be reachable on the web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting corporation, or by the customer, based on the specific dedicated server package. In either situation, the party handling the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given time. Administration is carried out via a web hosting Control Panel graphical interface that allows you to keep an eye on the services running on the hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosting distributors offer dedicated servers utilizing one specific Operating System, while others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not work on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, examine what the web hosting provider provides and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications needed to administer a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your files and bring the web site online. The majority of hosting companies offer full root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated server and change any settings. Particular script-powered software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Different shopping cart software scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and obtaining complete server root access to the dedicated server is vital for having a web store. Other hosts do not give root-level access, but help the customer activate the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full server root access.
