Dedicated Servers Description

Free and paid shared plans are among the most commonly used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are excellent for small online portals that do not need a lot of system resources and do not draw that many visitors, but for high resource-consuming sites with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is needed. If you are looking for an advanced, first-class shared hosting platform that can cope with even millions of daily hits, a dedicated server is your best alternative.

Tackle the Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire physical server whose resources will be used only by your web sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units running at a specific speed, a certain amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration intended to cope with heavy load and specific software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites accommodated on it to be reachable on the web.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting firm, or by the customer, depending on the given dedicated server plan. In either situation, the party handling the physical machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific time. Administration is carried out through a hosting CP interface that allows you to monitor the processes running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Some web hosting providers offer dedicated servers using one given Operating System, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not work on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based sites utilizing MySQL databases will function on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the web hosting corporation provides and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications required to administer a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your files and get the website online. Most providers grant full root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Certain script-powered platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. A lot of shopping cart software scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and being granted complete root access to the dedicated server is essential for making a web store. Other web hosting suppliers do not give complete root-level access, but help the client install the required software - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes root privileges.

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) session or through a CP user interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of Control Panel graphical interfaces available, and usually web hosting vendors provide a couple of them, and with complete root-level access at hand, the client can install any of them. All website files, databases, e-mail boxes, access logs and program installations are administered easily through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is required.
