Dedicated Web Hosting Definition

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most famous web hosting solutions on the market. They are appropriate for small websites that do not demand lots of system resources and do not draw that many viewers, but for resource-absorbing web sites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more powerful platform is required. If you need a rock steady, first-class web hosting solution that can tackle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated web hosting is your finest alternative.

Handle the Intense Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated solution, you lease an entire machine whose system resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors running at a given speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, etc. A hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration intended to handle high load and specific software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites accommodated on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting vendor, or by the client, based on the given dedicated web hosting plan. In either situation, the side administering the dedicated server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given moment. Administration is done through a CP graphical interface that permits you to keep an eye on the processes running on the dedicated server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are various hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Given web hosting firms provide dedicated web hosting utilizing one particular OS, while others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not work on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the hosting distributor offers and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software platforms required in order to administer a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you get the web server, you can upload your web site files and get the website online. Most web hosting firms grant root access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Specific script-powered software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Lots of shopping cart scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and gaining complete server root access to the dedicated server is critical for setting up a web shop. Other web hosting providers do not provide full server root privileges, but help the customer activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with complete root access.
