Dedicated Servers Description
Free and paid shared packages are among the most commonly used website hosting solutions on the market. They are good for small sites that do not need plenty of system resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for large-scale online portals with many 1000's of website visitors, a more powerful solution is necessary. If you are searching for a robust, top-quality shared hosting platform that can handle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your most suitable choice.
Tackle the Intense Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server
With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire machine whose system resources will be used solely by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs functioning at a given speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration intended to cope with intense load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites hosted on it to be reachable online.
Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions
A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting provider, or by the client, depending on the given dedicated server package. In either case, the side managing the dedicated machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any given moment. Administration is carried out via a hosting Control Panel interface that allows you to supervise the tasks running on the dedicated web hosting server.
Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers
There are various server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Some web hosting companies provide dedicated servers utilizing one given Operating System, while others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites request a Windows web server, for example, and will not run on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the hosting corporation provides and what the necessities of your website are.
Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers
By default, each dedicated server offers all the software platforms required in order to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you obtain the web server, you can upload your files and bring the website online. Most hosting service providers offer full root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Particular script-driven platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. A lot of shopping cart software scripts, for instance, involve such a requirement, and being given complete root-level access to the dedicated server is decisive for managing a web store. Other hosting suppliers do not give full root privileges, but help the client activate the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting service, which comes with full root privileges.
