Dedicated Servers Definition

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widespread website hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small online portals that do not request plenty of system resources and do not draw that many viewers, but for huge web portals with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful solution is necessary. If you want a rock solid, hi-end hosting solution that can cope with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated server is your finest choice.

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

With the dedicated web hosting service, you rent an entire physical machine whose system resources will be used only by your sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs running at a particular speed, a certain amount of memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration intended to handle high load and specific software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the sites hosted on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting vendor, or by the customer, on the basis of the given dedicated server plan. In either case, the party managing the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any particular moment. Management is done through a web hosting Control Panel user interface that allows you to keep track of the services running on the dedicated web hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Some hosting corporations offer dedicated servers running one given Operating System, whereas others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites necessitate a Windows web server, for example, and will not operate on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, learn what the hosting corporation provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software applications required to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you obtain the web hosting server, you can upload your website files and bring the web site online. The majority of hosting distributors offer complete root access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Certain script-powered platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to perform. A lot of e-commerce software scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and being granted full root-level access to the dedicated server is critical for setting up an online storefront. Other web hosting suppliers do not offer complete root-level access, but help the customer activate the required software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which offers full server root access.
