Description of Dedicated Hosting

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most commonly used website hosting products on the marketplace. They are good for small-sized websites that do not necessitate plenty of resources and do not draw that many website visitors, but for resource-demanding sites with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced solution is needed. If you are seeking a stable, leading-edge hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated package is your perfect choice.

Tackle the Intense Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web server hosting solution, you rent an entire hosting server whose system resources will be used solely by your websites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors running at a certain speed, some amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration intended to handle heavy load and given software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the web sites hosted on it to be accessible on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting company, or by the customer, depending on the particular dedicated package plan. In either instance, the side managing the dedicated web server has access to a software platform to restart it at any specific moment. Administration is carried out through a hosting CP GUI that permits you to check the tasks running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Packages

There are different hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Given web hosting firms offer dedicated packages utilizing one given Operating System, whereas others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites need a Windows server, for instance, and will not perform on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, discover what the web hosting distributor offers and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications required in order to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you get the server, you can upload your web site files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting distributors give full root-level access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated server and update any settings. Given script-driven software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Various e-commerce scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and gaining root-level access to the dedicated server is decisive for making a web shop. Other web hosting distributors do not provide full root-level access, but help the customer activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which offers complete root access.
