Dedicated Server Web Hosting Definition

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most commonly used hosting solutions on the market. They are perfect for small sites that do not need lots of system resources and do not get that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-devouring web portals with many thousands of viewers, a more advanced solution is needed. If you would like to have a reliable, hi-end shared web hosting solution that can tackle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated server web hosting is your most appropriate choice.

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

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you lease a whole machine whose system resources will be used only by your web sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more CPUs functioning at a specific speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration meant to tackle intense load and certain software activated on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the sites hosted on it to be available online.

A dedicated web hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting company, or by the customer, on the basis of the concrete dedicated server web hosting package. In either instance, the party managing the physical server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given moment. Management is carried out through a hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that permits you to check the services running on the physical server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

There are various web hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Specific providers provide dedicated server web hosting utilizing one given Operating System, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not function on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated web hosting server, examine what the hosting distributor provides and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server offers all the software apps required to administer a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you get the dedicated server, you can upload your web files and get the web site online. The majority of hosting companies give root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated web hosting server and modify any settings. Given script-powered software platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Different shopping cart scripts, for instance, include such a requirement, and gaining complete server root access to the dedicated web hosting server is key for building an online shop. Other providers do not offer root privileges, but help the customer activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with root access.
