Dedicated Hosting Server

Free and paid shared plans are among the most famous hosting products on the market. They are appropriate for small-scale sites that do not require plenty of system resources and do not draw that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-consuming online portals with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced platform is needed. If you are searching for a robust, top-drawer website hosting platform that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting server is your perfect option.

Tackle the Intense Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting solution, you lease an entire physical server whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units functioning at a particular speed, a certain amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A web hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to cope with heavy load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the web sites accommodated on it to be available on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, depending on the particular dedicated hosting package. In either case, the side managing the server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific moment. Management is carried out through a web hosting CP graphical interface that enables you to check the processes running on the physical machine.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting Servers

There are various web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Specific hosting companies offer web hosting servers utilizing one particular OS, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows server, for example, and will not perform on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will function on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated machine, check what the web hosting distributor provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

By default, each dedicated web hosting server comes with all the software platforms required in order to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your web files and bring the site online. The majority of web hosting service providers grant full server root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the hosting server and modify any settings. Given script-driven software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. Different shopping cart scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and having complete server root access to the dedicated machine is vital for running a web shop. Other web hosting companies do not grant complete root-level access, but help the customer install the required software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes full root access.

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated web hosting server can be managed either via a Secure Shell (SSH) session or via a web hosting CP graphical user interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are 10's of hosting Control Panel graphical interfaces out there, and usually providers provide several of them, and with root access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All web files, databases, mail addresses, access logs and program installations are administered easily via a GUI in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Specific CPs also have a reseller backend panel, so if you pick a dedicated web hosting server, you can not merely host your web site files, but also sell shared web site hosting plans to different users to gain cash. Some hosting companies provide free billing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated hosting server plan of theirs, which enables you to constitute your own personal hosting company and gain cash very fast as the hosting market niche is constantly proliferating.
