What is Dedicated Hosting?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widely used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are applicable for small-scale web sites that do not need lots of system resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for busy web portals with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you would like to have a dependable, first-class web hosting solution that can deal with even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your most appropriate alternative.

Tackle the Heavy Load Created by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you lease a whole physical machine whose resources will be utilized only by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processors functioning at a given speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, etc. A hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware intended to cope with intense load and specific software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the websites stored on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting provider, or by the client, based on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the party managing the dedicated machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific time. Management is done via a Control Panel interface that enables you to keep an eye on the services running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Given hosts provide dedicated hosting running one given OS, whereas others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not function on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, discover what the hosting corporation provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software apps needed in order to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your files and bring the site online. Most web hosts grant full root-level access, in other words you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and modify any settings. Particular script-powered platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Many e-commerce scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and being granted root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is critical for kicking off an online storefront. Other web hosting distributors do not give root-level access, but help the client install the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with complete server root access.
