Definition of Dedicated Web Hosting

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most famous website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are appropriate for small web portals that do not need a lot of resources and do not receive that many website visitors, but for high resource-devouring websites with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful platform is demanded. If you need an advanced, avant-garde web hosting solution that can tackle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated web hosting is your most suitable choice.

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

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you rent a whole server whose resources will be used solely by your websites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processing units running at a certain speed, some amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated web server is indeed a computer with hardware meant to cope with intense load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites stored on it to be reachable on the web.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web host, or by the customer, on the basis of the particular dedicated web hosting package. In either situation, the side administering the dedicated server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any time. Management is done via a CP GUI that enables you to keep track of the services running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Particular hosting companies provide dedicated web hosting utilizing one particular Operating System, while others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not work on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, learn what the web hosting vendor offers and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software platforms required to run a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated web server, you can upload your files and take the site online. Most web hosting distributors provide full server root privileges, in other words you can install any software applications on the dedicated server and change any settings. Given script-powered platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Plenty of e-commerce software scripts, for instance, include such a requirement, and gaining complete server root access to the dedicated server is crucial for building an online shop. Other web hosts do not give full root privileges, but help the customer activate the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which offers full root access.
