How Does Dedicated Hosting Work?

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widespread hosting products on the marketplace. They are perfect for small-size web sites that do not request a lot of resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for high resource-swallowing websites with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you require a steady, top-class hosting platform that can handle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated server is your most excellent alternative.

Handle the Intense Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated solution, you lease an entire machine whose resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs operating at a certain speed, a particular amount of RAM, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A dedicated server is in fact a computer with hardware designed to tackle high load and certain software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites accommodated on it to be reachable on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting corporation, or by the client, based on the specific dedicated server package. In either case, the party managing the physical machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any moment. Management is carried out through a hosting CP graphical interface that permits you to check the tasks running on the dedicated web server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Given web hosting service providers provide dedicated servers running one given Operating System, whereas others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not perform on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, find out what the web hosting supplier provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software apps needed in order to run a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated server, you can upload your web site files and take the web site online. Most hosting providers provide full server root access, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and update any settings. Specific script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Different shopping cart software scripts, for instance, involve such a requirement, and being supplied with complete root access to the dedicated server is critical for building a web store. Other web hosting providers do not give root privileges, but help the client install the needed software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full server root privileges.
