What Actually is Dedicated Web Hosting?

Free and paid shared plans are among the most extensively used web hosting solutions on the market. They are splendid for small-size websites that do not necessitate a lot of resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for resource-demanding sites with many thousands of web site visitors, a more advanced solution is needed. If you are seeking a rock solid, top-drawer web hosting platform that can tackle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated web hosting is your finest alternative.

Tackle the Intense Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server web hosting service, you lease an entire server whose resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors running at a given speed, a certain amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, etc. A web hosting server is actually a computer with hardware designed to handle heavy load and specific software activated on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the sites hosted on it to be accessible on the web.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting distributor, or by the customer, on the basis of the given dedicated web hosting plan. In either situation, the party administering the server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any moment. Administration is carried out through a web hosting Control Panel user interface that allows you to supervise the processes running on the web server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Certain web hosting distributors offer dedicated web hosting running one specific OS, while others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites need a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated server, discover what the provider offers and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications required to run a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web files and take the website online. The majority of hosting firms give root privileges, in other words you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Specific script-powered software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Lots of e-commerce software scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and being granted complete root access to the dedicated server is critical for setting up an online storefront. Other web hosting companies do not provide full root access, but help the customer install the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with complete server root access.
