Dedicated Plans Defined

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widely used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are excellent for small-scale sites that do not require plenty of resources and do not get that many viewers, but for heavy resource-demanding web sites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you are searching for a reliable, top-drawer hosting solution that can deal with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most suitable choice.

Tackle the Load Caused by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you lease an entire physical machine whose system resources will be used solely by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units running at a particular speed, a certain amount of RAM, one or more hard disk drives, etc. A server is in fact a computer with hardware intended to handle heavy load and some software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the web sites stored on it to be available on the web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated server package. In either case, the side administering the dedicated server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular moment. Administration is carried out through a hosting Control Panel graphical interface that permits you to keep track of the tasks running on the machine.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting companies provide dedicated servers using one given Operating System, while others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites request a Windows server, for example, and will not perform on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, discover what the hosting firm provides and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software apps needed to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your web files and bring the web site online. Most hosting corporations provide root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Some script-powered platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Plenty of shopping cart scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and being given complete root access to the dedicated server is crucial for making an online shop. Other web hosting corporations do not provide root privileges, but help the customer activate the required software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with full root-level access.
