What Does Dedicated Servers Hosting Stand for?

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widespread hosting products on the market. They are good for small-scale web pages that do not demand lots of resources and do not have that many visitors, but for resource-absorbing websites with many thousands of web site visitors, a more powerful solution is necessary. If you would like to have a dependable, first-class shared hosting solution that can handle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your best option.

Tackle the High Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease an entire physical server whose resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors functioning at a particular speed, a specific amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated web server is indeed a computer with hardware aimed to cope with intense load and certain software activated on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the web sites stored on it to be accessible on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting vendor, or by the client, on the basis of the specific dedicated server plan. In either situation, the party managing the physical machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific moment. Management is carried out via a hosting CP graphical user interface that permits you to supervise the tasks running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Given providers provide dedicated servers using one specific OS, while others offer clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows server, for instance, and will not work on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Prior to renting a dedicated server, discover what the hosting firm provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software applications required in order to administer 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 get the dedicated web server, you can upload your website files and get the web site online. The majority of web hosting vendors grant complete server root access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and update any settings. Some script-based platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and being granted complete server root access to the dedicated server is vital for managing an online storefront. Other web hosting service providers do not offer full root-level access, but help the customer activate the needed software - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes root privileges.
