Dedicated Web Hosting Servers Clarified

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most popular website hosting products on the market. They are perfect for small-scale web sites that do not need lots of resources and do not have that many viewers, but for resource-swallowing web sites with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you demand a robust, first-class website hosting platform that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated web hosting is your best alternative.

Tackle the High Load Caused by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server

With the dedicated web server hosting solution, you lease a whole hosting server whose system resources will be used solely by your websites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more central processing units running at a given speed, a given amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A web hosting server is in fact a computer with hardware intended to tackle high load and some software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated web hosting server can be managed either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, on the basis of the particular dedicated web hosting plan. In either case, the party administering the dedicated web server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given moment. Administration is carried out through a hosting Control Panel graphical interface that enables you to supervise the tasks running on the dedicated web server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are various server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosting companies provide dedicated web hosting running one given Operating System, while others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not function on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated web hosting server, find out what the hosting distributor provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server offers all the software applications required in order to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated server, you can upload your web files and take the website online. Most web hosting vendors grant full server root privileges, in other words you can install any software platforms on the dedicated web hosting server and revise any settings. Particular script-based platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to function. Different shopping cart software scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and being supplied with root-level access to the dedicated web hosting server is essential for administering a web storefront. Other hosting suppliers do not offer root-level access, but help the customer install the needed software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which offers complete server root access.
