Dedicated Web Hosting Unveiled
Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widely used website hosting solutions on the market. They are perfect for small-scale web portals that do not demand lots of resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for high resource-requiring web sites with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful platform is necessary. If you desire a steady, cutting-edge web hosting solution that can handle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated web hosting is your most excellent option.
Tackle the Heavy Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server
With the dedicated web hosting service, you lease an entire web server whose resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processing units operating at a particular speed, some amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration intended to cope with high load and certain software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites accommodated on it to be visible online.
Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Solutions
A dedicated server can be administered either by the host, or by the customer, on the basis of the specific dedicated web hosting plan. In either case, the party administering the physical server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given time. Administration is done via a hosting CP graphical user interface that enables you to keep track of the processes running on the hosting server.
Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting
There are different hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting vendors offer dedicated web hosting running one particular OS, while others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not work on another OS, while PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will operate on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, learn what the web hosting provider offers and what the needs of your website are.
Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting
By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications needed in order to manage a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the server, you can upload your files and get the site online. The majority of web hosting companies grant full server root privileges, i.e. you can install any software applications on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Some script-based platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Various e-commerce scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and receiving full server root access to the dedicated server is essential for kicking off an online storefront. Other hosting providers do not give full root access, but help the client install the required software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which offers root privileges.
