What are Dedicated Servers?

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most popular web hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are splendid for small-scale websites that do not request lots of system resources and do not get that many web site visitors, but for high resource-consuming web portals with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you desire a dependable, top-notch hosting solution that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your perfect option.

Handle the Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you rent an entire machine whose system resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units functioning at a certain speed, a particular amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A web hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to cope with intense load and given software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the sites stored on it to be accessible on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting company, or by the customer, depending on the particular dedicated server plan. In either situation, the side administering the dedicated web server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific time. Management is carried out via a Control Panel interface that permits you to monitor the services running on the dedicated hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Certain web hosting suppliers offer dedicated servers running one specific OS, while others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows web server, for instance, and will not perform on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, find out what the provider offers and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software platforms needed in order to administer a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the server, you can upload your web files and get the website online. The majority of hosting corporations grant root access, in other words you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and update any settings. Specific script-based platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. Many shopping cart scripts, for example, involve such a requirement, and gaining full root-level access to the dedicated server is crucial for making a web store. Other hosting distributors do not provide root-level access, but help the customer install the required software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which offers full server root access.
