Dedicated Hosting Services Description

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most famous website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are OK for small-scale websites that do not demand plenty of resources and do not receive that many viewers, but for resource-absorbing websites with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you are seeking a robust, top-drawer web hosting platform that can tackle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your most suitable choice.

Handle the Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease an entire hosting server whose resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors running at a specific speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration meant to handle high load and some software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the websites accommodated on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting provider, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either case, the side administering the server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific time. Administration is carried out through a hosting Control Panel GUI that allows you to check the services running on the web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, etc. Some hosting vendors provide dedicated hosting using one particular OS, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated hosting server, examine what the web hosting corporation provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software applications needed in order to manage a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the hosting server, you can upload your web files and bring the website online. Most hosting suppliers give root access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and modify any settings. Given script-driven platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Different e-commerce software scripts, for example, involve such a requirement, and obtaining root access to the dedicated hosting server is decisive for having an online store. Other web hosting companies do not grant root-level access, but help the customer activate the required software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with root-level access.
