What Does Dedicated Web Hosting Denote?

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most popular website hosting products on the marketplace. They are excellent for small-size sites that do not need a lot of resources and do not receive that many website visitors, but for heavy resource-devouring web sites with many thousands of viewers, a more advanced solution is needed. If you need a rock solid, cutting-edge website hosting platform that can handle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated web hosting is your most appropriate alternative.

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

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease a whole server whose system resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more processors operating at a certain speed, a specific amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A web hosting server is in fact a computer with hardware meant to handle heavy load and some software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the web sites accommodated on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated web hosting server can be administered either by the provider, or by the customer, on the basis of the given dedicated web hosting package. In either case, the party managing the server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific moment. Management is carried out via a web hosting CP GUI that enables you to keep an eye on the processes running on the dedicated server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting corporations offer dedicated web hosting utilizing one given OS, while others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for example, and will not operate on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated web hosting server, find out what the web hosting corporation offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting 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, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated machine, you can upload your website files and take the web site online. Most web hosting companies provide full root access, in other words you can install any software platforms on the dedicated web hosting server and alter any settings. Some script-powered software platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. Lots of e-commerce software scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and receiving root access to the dedicated web hosting server is critical for making an online storefront. Other hosts do not give full root privileges, but help the client activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which offers complete root access.
