Dedicated Servers Description

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most famous web hosting products on the market. They are splendid for small-scale web sites that do not require a lot of resources and do not receive that many viewers, but for large web portals with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful solution is needed. If you require an advanced, topflight hosting platform that can handle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most appropriate choice.

Handle the Heavy Load Created by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease a whole physical machine whose resources will be utilized only by your web sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors running at a given speed, some amount of memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A hosting server is actually a computer with hardware intended to tackle heavy load and certain software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the websites stored on it to be reachable online.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting corporation, or by the client, based on the given dedicated server plan. In either instance, the side administering the web hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific moment. Administration is carried out through a Control Panel graphical interface that enables you to supervise the processes running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Particular hosting distributors provide dedicated servers using one particular OS, whereas others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows server, for instance, and will not function on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated server, discover what the hosting supplier provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications needed in order to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your website files and bring the web site online. The majority of hosts grant root access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and change any settings. Some script-based platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to perform. Many e-commerce scripts, for instance, impose such a precondition, and being granted complete root access to the dedicated server is vital for setting up a web shop. Other hosting companies do not provide full server root privileges, but help the customer activate the required software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with complete root-level access.

The web content on the dedicated server can be managed either via a Secure Shell (SSH) terminal or via a web hosting Control Panel GUI like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are 10's of web hosting Control Panel tools out there, and usually web hosting corporations offer a number of them, and with root-level access at hand, the customer can install any of them. All website files, databases, email accounts, access logs and script installations are managed easily via a graphical user interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Particular web hosting CPs also include a reseller backend console, so if you have a dedicated server, you can not just host your web site files, but also offer shared hosting plans to different clients to generate money.
