How Dedicated Web Hosting Servers Operate

Free and paid shared packages are among the most widespread website hosting products on the market. They are suitable for small-scale web portals that do not necessitate a lot of resources and do not have that many visitors, but for resource-consuming sites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more advanced platform is needed. If you demand a reliable, top-quality website hosting solution that can deal with even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated web hosting is your most excellent choice.

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

With the dedicated hosting service, you rent an entire machine whose system resources will be used only by your websites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more microprocessors functioning at a particular speed, some amount of memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A web hosting server is in fact a computer with hardware designed to handle intense load and some software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the web sites hosted on it to be accessible online.

A dedicated web hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting supplier, or by the client, depending on the specific dedicated web hosting package. In either instance, the side administering the web server has access to a software platform to restart it at any time. Management is done through a web hosting CP user interface that permits you to monitor the services running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are various hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Specific hosting suppliers provide dedicated web hosting using one particular Operating System, while others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows server, for instance, and will not perform on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated web hosting server, learn what the web hosting vendor provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server offers all the software applications needed in order to run a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your files and get the web site online. Most hosting vendors grant complete root access, in other words you can activate any software on the dedicated web hosting server and change any settings. Certain script-powered software platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Various e-commerce software scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and being given complete root access to the dedicated web hosting server is crucial for managing an online storefront. Other web hosting service providers do not provide root-level access, but help the client activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with root privileges.
