Dedicated Hosting Explanation

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widespread web hosting solutions on the market. They are splendid for small online portals that do not require plenty of resources and do not have that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-absorbing online portals with many 1000's of viewers, a more powerful solution is needed. If you need a robust, top-notch web hosting platform that can deal with even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated hosting is your best option.

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

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you lease an entire machine whose resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processing units running at a certain speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A hosting server is actually a computer with hardware aimed to cope with high load and some software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the sites accommodated on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting corporation, or by the customer, on the basis of the specific dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the side administering the hosting server has access to a software tool to restart it at any particular moment. Administration is done via a hosting Control Panel graphical interface that allows you to keep track of the tasks running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosting suppliers offer dedicated hosting utilizing one particular OS, while others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows web server, for instance, and will not operate on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the web hosting service provider provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software needed to manage a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your web site files and bring the website online. The majority of web hosting service providers provide complete root-level access, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Particular script-based platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Plenty of e-commerce scripts, for example, have such a precondition, and getting complete server root access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for running a web shop. Other hosting firms do not give full server root privileges, but help the customer install the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes root access.
