Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widely used web hosting products on the market. They are OK for small web sites that do not demand a lot of system resources and do not have that many viewers, but for high resource-devouring websites with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you would like to have a stable, no-holds-barred web hosting platform that can handle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your finest option.

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

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you rent an entire machine whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processing units running at a given speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, etc. A web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware aimed to handle intense load and some software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the sites accommodated on it to be available on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting corporation, or by the client, based on the concrete dedicated hosting plan. In either case, the side managing the dedicated hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular time. Administration is done via a hosting CP graphical interface that allows you to check the services running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Specific hosting firms offer dedicated hosting running one specific OS, while others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not perform on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated hosting server, examine what the hosting supplier provides and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software apps needed to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your web site files and bring the site online. Most web hosting companies give complete root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Particular script-driven platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. Various shopping cart software scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and gaining root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is essential for launching a web store. Other web hosting vendors do not offer root privileges, but help the customer install the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes full root privileges.
