Dedicated Hosting Packages Explanation

Free and paid shared plans are among the most commonly used website hosting solutions on the market. They are okay for small-sized online portals that do not need lots of resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for huge sites with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you are looking for an advanced, first-class web hosting platform that can handle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated hosting is your most suitable option.

Tackle the Heavy Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you lease an entire physical machine whose system resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors functioning at a specific speed, some amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, etc. A web server is actually a computer with hardware aimed to tackle high load and given software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the web sites stored on it to be available on the web.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting supplier, or by the client, based on the particular dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the side managing the physical server has access to a software platform to restart it at any particular time. Administration is done through a web hosting Control Panel graphical interface that allows you to check the processes running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different web hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Some web hosting distributors provide dedicated hosting using one given Operating System, whereas others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not work on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, check what the web hosting vendor offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software apps needed in order to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated machine, you can upload your website files and bring the web site online. The majority of hosting vendors provide root access, in other words you can install any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Certain script-powered platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Plenty of e-commerce scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and being supplied with root access to the dedicated hosting server is decisive for managing an online shop. Other hosting providers do not grant complete root-level access, but help the customer install the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting service, which includes root access.
