How Dedicated Hosting Servers Operate

Free and paid shared plans are among the most famous website hosting products on the marketplace. They are perfect for small-scale websites that do not demand a lot of resources and do not draw that many visitors, but for resource-demanding web pages with many thousands of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is needed. If you demand a steady, top-quality web hosting solution that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your finest alternative.

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

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you rent a whole machine whose system resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs operating at a certain speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, etc. A dedicated server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to cope with heavy load and given software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the web sites accommodated on it to be reachable on the web.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting service provider, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either case, the side handling the dedicated web server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given moment. Administration is carried out through a hosting Control Panel GUI that enables you to supervise the processes running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Specific web hosting firms offer dedicated hosting using one specific OS, whereas others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the hosting company provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software applications needed in order to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the web hosting server, you can upload your web files and get the website online. The majority of hosting corporations offer complete root access, in other words you can activate any software on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Particular script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to function. Different e-commerce scripts, for instance, include such a requirement, and being offered full root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is essential for developing a web storefront. Other hosts do not grant full server root access, but help the customer activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting service, which offers complete root access.
