How Do Dedicated Servers Work?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widespread website hosting products on the market. They are excellent for small-scale websites that do not need plenty of system resources and do not draw that many website visitors, but for popular web portals with many 1000's of visitors, a more powerful solution is demanded. If you are seeking a rock solid, cutting-edge shared hosting solution that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated server is your best choice.

Handle the High Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated service, you lease a whole server whose resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processing units operating at a certain speed, some amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated hosting server is actually a computer with hardware meant to handle high load and given software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites stored on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Servers Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting supplier, or by the client, based on the concrete dedicated server package. In either case, the side handling the web server has access to a software tool to restart it at any specific moment. Management is carried out through a web hosting Control Panel interface that permits you to check the services running on the machine.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Some web hosting suppliers provide dedicated servers utilizing one particular Operating System, while others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not function on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, check what the web hosting provider provides and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software platforms required in order to administer a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you get the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your website files and take the website online. Most web hosting corporations grant complete root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Some script-based platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. A lot of e-commerce scripts, for instance, include such a requirement, and receiving complete server root access to the dedicated server is key for developing an online shop. Other providers do not offer root privileges, but help the customer install the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which includes full server root privileges.
