What Actually is Dedicated Hosting?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most famous website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are okay for small web portals that do not request a lot of system resources and do not have that many visitors, but for heavy resource-requiring online portals with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you require a rock steady, leading-edge shared hosting platform that can deal with even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your perfect option.

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

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you lease a whole physical machine whose resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a certain speed, some amount of memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated server is indeed a computer with hardware designed to tackle heavy load and some software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the websites stored on it to be accessible on the Internet.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting provider, or by the customer, on the basis of the particular dedicated hosting package. In either case, the side managing the dedicated machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any time. Administration is carried out via a Control Panel tool that permits you to supervise the tasks running on the server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are different web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Certain web hosting providers provide dedicated hosting utilizing one specific Operating System, whereas others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows web server, for example, and will not work on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, find out what the web hosting corporation provides and what the needs of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software applications needed in order to manage a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you get the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your files and get the site online. Most web hosting vendors offer complete server root access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Some script-driven software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Different shopping cart software scripts, for example, have such a requirement, and being bestowed with full root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is critical for administering an online shop. Other hosting distributors do not give full root-level access, but help the client activate the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which offers full root-level access.
