Dedicated Services Unmasked

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widely used hosting products on the market. They are appropriate for small-sized websites that do not demand plenty of system resources and do not get that many viewers, but for high resource-devouring web sites with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful platform is required. If you require a rock steady, top-class hosting platform that can handle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most appropriate choice.

Tackle the Intense Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting solution, you lease an entire machine whose system resources will be used only by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs functioning at a given speed, a certain amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A dedicated server is actually a computer with hardware meant to handle intense load and some software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be visible on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, depending on the concrete dedicated server package. In either instance, the side managing the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular moment. Administration is done through a hosting Control Panel user interface that allows you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the dedicated web server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Some web hosts offer dedicated servers using one given OS, whereas others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not run on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, discover what the web hosting corporation offers and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications required in order to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated machine, you can upload your website files and get the website online. Most hosting distributors grant full server root access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated server and update any settings. Particular script-based software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to function. Various e-commerce scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and receiving root access to the dedicated server is vital for running an online storefront. Other web hosting suppliers do not grant full root-level access, but help the client install the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting service, which comes with full server root privileges.

The files on the dedicated server can be managed either through a Secure Shell (SSH) connection or via a CP graphical user interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on.
