How Does Dedicated Hosting Operate?

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most commonly used hosting solutions on the market. They are appropriate for small web pages that do not demand a lot of system resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for high resource-demanding web portals with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you would like to have a solid, top-class hosting solution that can deal with even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated server is your most appropriate alternative.

Tackle the Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you rent a whole machine whose system resources will be used only by your sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors running at a particular speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web server is in fact a computer with hardware meant to handle high load and certain software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites accommodated on it to be accessible on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting supplier, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated server plan. In either case, the party managing the physical server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any time. Management is carried out via a hosting Control Panel graphical interface that allows you to keep track of the processes running on the dedicated server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Given hosting vendors provide dedicated servers utilizing one particular OS, whereas others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not function on another OS, while PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, learn what the hosting corporation offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications required in order to run a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your web files and take the site online. Most web hosting suppliers grant full server root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and update any settings. Certain script-powered software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to perform. Lots of shopping cart software scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and being provided with full root-level access to the dedicated server is vital for running an online shop. Other hosting vendors do not offer full root access, but help the customer activate the required software - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which offers root-level access.
