How Dedicated Hosting Servers Work

Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular website hosting solutions on the market. They are splendid for small-sized web sites that do not necessitate a lot of system resources and do not have that many visitors, but for heavy resource-devouring websites with many thousands of web site visitors, a more powerful solution is demanded. If you are searching for a dependable, leading-edge web hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated hosting is your finest choice.

Tackle the Intense Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you rent a whole web server whose resources will be used solely by your websites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more central processing units running at a specific speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A web hosting server is actually a computer with hardware designed to handle intense load and given software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the web sites hosted on it to be visible online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting provider, or by the customer, depending on the specific dedicated hosting plan. In either case, the party handling the web server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific time. Administration is done through a hosting CP user interface that enables you to monitor the tasks running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are different server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosting distributors provide dedicated hosting using one given OS, whereas others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites need a Windows server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, learn what the provider offers and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms needed in order to administer a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your website files and get the site online. The majority of web hosting vendors grant full server root privileges, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and modify any settings. Some script-powered platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Various e-commerce software scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and being provided with complete server root access to the dedicated hosting server is key for developing an online store. Other hosts do not give root privileges, but help the client install the needed software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting service, which comes with full root access.
