Definition of Dedicated Hosting

Free and paid shared plans are among the most famous website hosting products on the marketplace. They are splendid for small-sized websites that do not demand plenty of resources and do not receive that many web site visitors, but for large-scale web sites with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced solution is required. If you need a robust, no-holds-barred web hosting platform that can tackle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your finest alternative.

Tackle the Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web server hosting solution, you rent an entire web server whose resources will be utilized solely by your websites.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting distributor, or by the customer, based on the specific dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the side handling the dedicated server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular time. Management is carried out through a Control Panel GUI that permits you to monitor the processes running on the physical machine.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Particular web hosting firms provide dedicated hosting using one particular OS, whereas others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, learn what the web hosting distributor offers and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software platforms needed to administer a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated machine, you can upload your files and get the website online. Most web hosting companies provide full root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Certain script-driven platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. A lot of e-commerce software scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and gaining complete root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for having a web storefront. Other hosting suppliers do not provide root privileges, but help the customer activate the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with full root privileges.
