Definition of Dedicated Hosting

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widespread website hosting solutions on the market. They are appropriate for small-sized websites that do not necessitate a lot of resources and do not have that many website visitors, but for large-scale online portals with many 1000's of viewers, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you demand a robust, top-quality web hosting platform that can tackle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your best choice.

Handle the Heavy Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire server whose system resources will be used only by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a certain speed, a specific amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated server is in fact a computer with hardware intended to cope with intense load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the sites hosted on it to be available on the Internet.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting firm, or by the customer, depending on the given dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the side handling the web server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular time. Management is done via a web hosting Control Panel interface that permits you to check the services running on the dedicated hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting corporations provide dedicated hosting running one particular Operating System, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows server, for example, and will not run on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, learn what the hosting firm offers and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software applications required to run a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated machine, you can upload your files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting vendors provide full server root access, in other words you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Given script-powered platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Lots of e-commerce software scripts, for instance, involve such a requirement, and being given complete server root access to the dedicated hosting server is essential for launching an online store. Other web hosting providers do not offer full root access, but help the client activate the needed software - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full root access.
