Dedicated Web Hosting Explanation

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most extensively used website hosting solutions on the market. They are appropriate for small-sized web sites that do not necessitate plenty of system resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for resource-absorbing online portals with many 1000's of website visitors, a more powerful solution is necessary. If you require a robust, first-class web hosting solution that can deal with even millions of daily hits, a dedicated web hosting is your perfect choice.

Tackle the High Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting solution, 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 processors running at a particular speed, a certain amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, etc. A web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware meant to tackle high load and some software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites stored on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web host, or by the client, depending on the particular dedicated web hosting plan. In either instance, the side administering the dedicated web server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular moment. Administration is done through a CP interface that allows you to keep an eye on the processes running on the dedicated server.

OSs for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are various hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Specific hosting firms offer dedicated web hosting utilizing one specific Operating System, while others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows web server, for instance, and will not function on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the provider offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications required to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated server, you can upload your website files and get the site online. The majority of web hosting firms grant root access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Specific script-driven platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. A lot of e-commerce scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and obtaining complete root-level access to the dedicated server is crucial for making an online storefront. Other web hosts do not give root-level access, but help the client install the required software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full root-level access.
