Dedicated Servers Unveiled

Free and paid shared packages are among the most commonly used hosting solutions on the market. They are good for small-sized websites that do not require a lot of resources and do not draw that many visitors, but for huge online portals with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful platform is necessary. If you desire a robust, first-rate hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most suitable alternative.

Handle the Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you lease a whole physical machine whose system resources will be used solely by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs running at a given speed, a certain amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration intended to cope with high load and some software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the websites stored on it to be visible on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting vendor, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated server plan. In either case, the side managing the server has access to a software platform to restart it at any given moment. Administration is done through a web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that permits you to keep track of the processes running on the dedicated web server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting corporations offer dedicated servers using one given OS, whereas others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites request a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on another OS, while PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, discover what the provider provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software required in order to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your files and bring the web site online. Most web hosting providers offer complete root access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Some script-driven platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Different e-commerce scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and gaining full root-level access to the dedicated server is key for building an online store. Other providers do not give root privileges, but help the customer install the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes complete server root access.
