What Precisely is Dedicated Hosting?

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most famous hosting products on the market. They are excellent for small websites that do not demand lots of system resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for resource-devouring websites with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you demand a reliable, hi-end hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated package is your finest choice.

Handle the Intense Load Generated by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated solution, you lease an entire hosting server whose resources will be used only by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processing units operating at a particular speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated server is actually a computer with hardware aimed to handle high load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the web sites accommodated on it to be available online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting distributor, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated package package. In either situation, the party administering the dedicated server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given moment. Management is done via a web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that allows you to monitor the processes running on the web server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Packages

There are different hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting corporations provide dedicated packages running one given OS, whereas others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated server, examine what the hosting provider provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software apps required to run a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you obtain the server, you can upload your web files and get the website online. Most web hosting providers provide complete server root access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Specific script-driven platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. A lot of e-commerce software scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and being provided with complete root access to the dedicated server is decisive for building an online shop. Other web hosting firms do not give root privileges, but help the customer activate the required software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which offers complete root-level access.
