Free and paid shared plans are among the most commonly used hosting products on the marketplace. They are okay for small-scale sites that do not demand plenty of resources and do not receive that many viewers, but for resource-absorbing online portals with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you want a dependable, top-drawer shared hosting solution that can tackle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated server is your most appropriate option.

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

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you rent an entire machine whose resources will be used solely by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs running at a particular speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, and so on. A server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration meant to cope with intense load and specific software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the web sites stored on it to be accessible on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Servers Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting corporation, or by the customer, on the basis of the specific dedicated server package. In either instance, the side handling the machine has access to a software tool to restart it at any given time. Management is done via a hosting CP graphical user interface that enables you to check the services running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosts provide dedicated servers running one given OS, whereas others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows server, for example, and will not perform on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, discover what the host provides and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software needed to run a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web files and bring the website online. Most hosting suppliers give full server root access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Particular script-driven platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to function. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and being provided with root-level access to the dedicated server is decisive for building an online shop. Other web hosting service providers do not offer full root-level access, but help the client activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full root privileges.
