Dedicated Servers Explanation

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widespread hosting products on the market. They are good for small online portals that do not require a lot of system resources and do not draw that many visitors, but for heavy resource-demanding sites with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful solution is needed. If you want a rock steady, top-drawer shared hosting platform that can handle even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated server is your perfect choice.

Tackle the Intense Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated solution, you lease an entire physical server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your web sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs running at a specific speed, some amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, and so on. A server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to tackle heavy load and certain software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the sites stored on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the customer, on the basis of the specific dedicated server package. In either instance, the side administering the physical server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given moment. Administration is done through a web hosting Control Panel GUI that enables you to supervise the services running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Certain web hosting firms offer dedicated servers utilizing one particular OS, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on another OS, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, examine what the provider offers and what the needs of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software platforms required in order to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you obtain the server, you can upload your website files and bring the website online. The majority of hosting corporations give complete server root access, in other words you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and update any settings. Given script-based platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and gaining complete root-level access to the dedicated server is crucial for establishing a web store. Other hosting companies do not give full root privileges, but help the customer install the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes root privileges.

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated server can be managed either through a Secure Shell (SSH) session or through a hosting CP GUI such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of Control Panel GUIs available, and normally hosting distributors offer several of them, and with full root access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All web site files, databases, emails, access logs and program installations are managed easily through a graphical user interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary.
