Description of Dedicated Server Web Hosting

Free and paid shared plans are among the most commonly used web hosting products on the marketplace. They are okay for small websites that do not request lots of system resources and do not draw that many visitors, but for heavy resource-consuming web sites with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you need a stable, no-holds-barred shared web hosting solution that can deal with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated server web hosting is your most excellent choice.

Handle the Load Created by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server

With the dedicated solution, you lease a whole web server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just as any computer, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a certain speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web server is actually a computer with hardware meant to handle intense load and given software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the web sites accommodated on it to be available on the Internet.

A dedicated web hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting distributor, or by the customer, on the basis of the concrete dedicated server web hosting package. In either situation, the party administering the web server has access to a software tool to restart it at any time. Management is carried out via a hosting CP graphical user interface that allows you to check the processes running on the dedicated server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

There are different server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Certain hosting firms offer dedicated server web hosting using one specific Operating System, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows server, for instance, and will not operate on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated web hosting server, examine what the web hosting provider provides and what the needs of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server includes all the software platforms required in order to manage a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you obtain the web hosting server, you can upload your web files and get the web site online. Most hosting corporations offer complete server root access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated web hosting server and modify any settings. Specific script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Plenty of shopping cart scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and having complete root access to the dedicated web hosting server is critical for managing an online shop. Other web hosting firms do not give root privileges, but help the client activate the required software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes root privileges.
