Dedicated Hosting Services Explained

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widely used website hosting solutions on the market. They are splendid for small websites that do not need plenty of system resources and do not receive that many viewers, but for high resource-absorbing online portals with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful solution is demanded. If you desire a stable, top-drawer web hosting solution that can tackle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your most appropriate alternative.

Handle the Intense Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you lease a whole hosting server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processing units functioning at a particular speed, a particular amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated web server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration designed to tackle heavy load and some software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the web sites stored on it to be visible online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting supplier, or by the client, based on the given dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the party administering the machine has access to a software platform to restart it at any time. Management is done through a Control Panel user interface that allows you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the machine.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different web hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Certain hosts offer dedicated hosting running one specific OS, while others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not operate on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, discover what the hosting firm offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software applications required in order to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the hosting server, you can upload your website files and get the web site online. Most hosting vendors grant root privileges, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Given script-powered platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to function. Different e-commerce scripts, for instance, impose such a precondition, and being supplied with full server root access to the dedicated hosting server is vital for administering an online store. Other hosts do not offer complete root-level access, but help the client install the required software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which offers root access.

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated hosting server can be administered either via a Secure Shell (SSH) connection or through a web hosting CP interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of hosting CP tools out there, and normally hosts offer a few of them, and with complete server root access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All web site files, databases, mail addresses, access logs and script installations are administered easily through a graphical interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Certain web hosting CPs also have a reseller back office panel, so if you obtain a dedicated hosting server, you can not simply host your web files, but also offer shared website hosting plans to different persons to earn profit.
