What Do Dedicated Hosting Servers Mean?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular hosting products on the market. They are excellent for small online portals that do not demand plenty of system resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for resource-swallowing web portals with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more powerful solution is demanded. If you are searching for a stable, first-rate shared hosting solution that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated server is your finest alternative.

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

With the dedicated service, you rent a whole machine whose resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a particular speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated server is indeed a computer with hardware intended to handle heavy load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the websites stored on it to be visible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the customer, on the basis of the concrete dedicated server package. In either case, the party managing the dedicated server has access to a software tool to restart it at any specific time. Management is done through a hosting CP graphical user interface that allows you to check the tasks running on the dedicated server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, etc. Particular hosting distributors provide dedicated servers using one specific Operating System, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not run on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, examine what the hosting supplier provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software applications needed 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 as soon as you obtain the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your web files and bring the web site online. Most hosting providers provide full server root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Particular script-based platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Various shopping cart scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and being granted complete server root access to the dedicated hosting server is key for establishing an online storefront. Other hosting firms do not give complete server root access, but help the client activate the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes complete root access.
