What Indeed is Dedicated Hosting?

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widely used website hosting products on the market. They are good for small websites that do not demand lots of resources and do not receive that many visitors, but for resource-demanding online portals with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced solution is demanded. If you require a dependable, top-notch shared hosting platform that can deal with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your most suitable option.

Handle the High Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated hosting solution, you rent an entire web hosting server whose resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processors running at a certain speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard drives, etc. A dedicated web hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration meant to handle intense load and certain software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the web sites stored on it to be visible on the web.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, on the basis of the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the party managing the dedicated web server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given time. Management is done via a hosting Control Panel user interface that allows you to keep an eye on the processes running on the dedicated hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Specific hosting vendors provide dedicated hosting using one given Operating System, while others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, learn what the web hosting service provider offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software applications needed in order to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you get the dedicated machine, you can upload your web files and get the website online. The majority of web hosts give full server root access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Specific script-driven platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Various shopping cart software scripts, for instance, involve such a requirement, and gaining full root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is key for having a web store. Other hosting vendors do not offer root access, but help the client install the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes complete root-level access.
