Dedicated Servers Clarified

Free and paid shared packages are among the most famous hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are suitable for small-scale websites that do not need plenty of resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for resource-swallowing web portals with many 1000's of website visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you are seeking a robust, hi-end shared hosting solution that can handle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your perfect option.

Handle the Intense Load Caused by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you rent an entire physical machine whose system resources will be used only by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processing units functioning at a given speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A hosting server is actually a computer with hardware aimed to cope with intense load and given software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the sites accommodated on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting vendor, or by the client, based on the given dedicated server plan. In either case, the side administering the web server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular time. Administration is carried out via a Control Panel GUI that allows you to check the services running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting vendors provide dedicated servers running one given OS, whereas others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, find out what the provider provides and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications required in order to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you get the dedicated machine, you can upload your web site files and get the web site online. The majority of web hosting service providers grant root privileges, in other words you can activate any software on the dedicated server and update any settings. Some script-powered platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. A lot of shopping cart software scripts, for example, involve such a requirement, and being bestowed with complete root access to the dedicated server is key for managing a web storefront. Other web hosting providers do not offer complete root access, but help the client activate the needed software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which offers root-level access.
