How Does Dedicated Hosting Operate?

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most commonly used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are appropriate for small-sized web pages that do not request plenty of system resources and do not have that many visitors, but for content-heavy sites with many 1000's of viewers, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you demand an advanced, top-quality web hosting solution that can cope with even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your most suitable alternative.

Tackle the High Load Created by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web server hosting solution, you rent an entire physical server whose system resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processors functioning at a particular speed, a certain amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, etc. A web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware designed to tackle high load and some software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites stored on it to be reachable on the Internet.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting company, or by the customer, depending on the specific dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the side managing the dedicated web server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular moment. Administration is carried out via a CP interface that permits you to check the tasks running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting firms offer dedicated hosting using one particular Operating System, whereas others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows web server, for instance, and will not operate on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, learn what the web hosting vendor provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software platforms needed in order to manage a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated machine, you can upload your website files and take the web site online. The majority of providers grant root-level access, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Certain script-driven software platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Different shopping cart scripts, for example, have such a precondition, and having root access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for making an online shop. Other web hosting corporations do not offer full server root privileges, but help the client activate the required software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which includes root access.
