What Do Dedicated Web Hosting Servers Mean?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most famous web hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are good for small-sized web pages that do not require plenty of resources and do not draw that many website visitors, but for high resource-requiring sites with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you want an advanced, cutting-edge website hosting platform that can handle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated web hosting is your best alternative.

Handle the Heavy Load Caused by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server

With the dedicated server web hosting service, you lease an entire server whose resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more central processing units running at a particular speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web server is actually 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 platforms, and so on, which permits the websites hosted on it to be reachable online.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Services

A dedicated web hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting company, or by the client, on the basis of the particular dedicated web hosting plan. In either situation, the side handling the dedicated machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular moment. Administration is carried out via a hosting Control Panel graphical interface that allows you to check the processes running on the web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are various web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting suppliers provide dedicated web hosting using one particular OS, whereas others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows web server, for example, and will not perform on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will operate on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated web hosting server, examine what the provider provides and what the needs of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server comes with all the software apps required in order to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your files and bring the site online. Most web hosting distributors provide full root access, in other words you can activate any software on the dedicated web hosting server and modify any settings. Some script-driven software platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Many e-commerce software scripts, for instance, involve such a precondition, and obtaining complete server root access to the dedicated web hosting server is vital for running an online storefront. Other web hosting firms do not give root privileges, but help the client install the required software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with root privileges.
