Description of Dedicated Web Hosting

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most commonly used website hosting products on the marketplace. They are perfect for small-scale online portals that do not demand a lot of system resources and do not have that many web site visitors, but for large-scale web pages with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful solution is necessary. If you require a steady, leading-edge web hosting solution that can deal with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated web hosting is your perfect option.

Handle the Intense Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you lease an entire server whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more processing units operating at a particular speed, some amount of RAM, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware intended to handle high load and some software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be reachable on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting firm, or by the client, depending on the particular dedicated web hosting plan. In either case, the side handling the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any specific moment. Management is carried out via a Control Panel tool that allows you to keep track of the tasks running on the web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Particular hosting firms provide dedicated web hosting utilizing one given OS, while others offer clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites request a Windows web server, for instance, and will not function on another OS, while PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated server, check what the web hosting distributor offers and what the needs of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software apps needed to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your web site files and take the website online. Most web hosting providers give full server root access, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Given script-based platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Different shopping cart software scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and obtaining full server root access to the dedicated server is vital for administering a web shop. Other web hosting vendors do not provide full server root access, but help the client activate the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged hosting solution, which offers full server root access.
