Free and paid shared plans are among the most extensively used website hosting products on the market. They are good for small-size web portals that do not demand plenty of system resources and do not draw that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-devouring websites with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful solution is demanded. If you demand an advanced, top-notch hosting platform that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your most suitable option.

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

With the dedicated server hosting service, you rent an entire server whose resources will be utilized only by your web sites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors running at a given speed, a particular amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A hosting server is in fact a computer with hardware aimed to handle heavy load and given software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites hosted on it to be available on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting distributor, or by the customer, on the basis of the given dedicated server package. In either situation, the party handling the physical server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any given moment. Administration is carried out through a web hosting Control Panel GUI that enables you to supervise the services running on the web hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Particular hosting firms provide dedicated servers using one specific OS, whereas others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows server, for instance, and will not work on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based sites using MySQL databases will operate on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, learn what the hosting supplier offers and what the needs of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software platforms needed to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you get the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your files and take the website online. Most web hosting corporations grant full root-level access, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Some script-driven platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. A lot of shopping cart software scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and gaining full server root access to the dedicated server is critical for setting up an online shop. Other web hosting providers do not grant complete server root access, but help the customer activate the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting service, which offers full server root access.

The files on the dedicated server can be managed either via a Secure Shell (SSH) connection or through a web hosting Control Panel interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on.
