Description of Dedicated Hosting

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most popular web hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are great for small web portals that do not request lots of system resources and do not have that many visitors, but for heavy resource-absorbing web sites with many 1000's of viewers, a more powerful platform is demanded. If you require a stable, top-drawer web hosting solution that can handle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your most suitable choice.

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

With the dedicated server hosting service, you lease an entire web server whose resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a particular speed, a given amount of memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated web server is actually a computer with hardware designed to handle high load and specific software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the websites hosted on it to be visible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the provider, or by the customer, based on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the side managing the dedicated web server has access to a software tool to restart it at any time. Administration is done via a hosting Control Panel user interface that enables you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are different web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting suppliers offer dedicated hosting using one given Operating System, whereas others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites need a Windows server, for example, and will not run on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will function on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, examine what the web hosting supplier offers and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software apps needed in order to administer a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web site files and take the website online. The majority of hosts grant root-level access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Particular script-driven platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Lots of shopping cart scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and being supplied with complete root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is vital for making a web shop. Other hosting vendors do not grant full server root privileges, but help the client install the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with complete root-level access.
