Dedicated Web Hosting Explanation

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most extensively used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are okay for small-size web pages that do not need lots of resources and do not have that many visitors, but for heavy resource-devouring online portals with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced solution is demanded. If you require an advanced, no-holds-barred website hosting solution that can handle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated web hosting is your perfect alternative.

Tackle the Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease a whole machine whose system resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more processors operating at a given speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration designed to cope with high load and specific software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites stored on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated web hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting service provider, or by the customer, on the basis of the given dedicated web hosting plan. In either situation, the side administering the hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any specific moment. Administration is carried out via a Control Panel GUI that allows you to check the processes running on the hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Specific hosting providers provide dedicated web hosting running one given Operating System, while others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows web server, for example, and will not work on a different OS, while PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Prior to renting a dedicated web hosting server, learn what the hosting company provides and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server comes with all the software apps required in order to administer a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the server, you can upload your website files and take the web site online. Most web hosting service providers provide complete server root access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated web hosting server and modify any settings. Given script-powered software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. Plenty of e-commerce software scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and being bestowed with root access to the dedicated web hosting server is crucial for managing a web storefront. Other web hosting suppliers do not give full root access, but help the client activate the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which offers complete root access.
