Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are excellent for small-scale web portals that do not need plenty of system resources and do not draw that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-consuming online portals with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced solution is necessary. If you are seeking a reliable, top-notch website hosting solution that can deal with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated web hosting is your finest alternative.

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

With the dedicated web hosting service, you rent an entire server whose resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more processing units functioning at a given speed, a certain amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A dedicated server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration intended to handle high load and some software activated on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites hosted on it to be accessible online.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Solutions

A dedicated web hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting supplier, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated web hosting plan. In either case, the party administering the dedicated web server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular time. Management is carried out through a Control Panel tool that allows you to keep an eye on the services running on the web hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, and so on. Some web hosting distributors provide dedicated web hosting using one specific Operating System, while others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows web server, for instance, and will not work on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Prior to renting a dedicated web hosting server, discover what the web hosting provider provides and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server comes with all the software platforms needed to manage a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you obtain the server, you can upload your web site files and bring the site online. The majority of web hosts give full root-level access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated web hosting server and modify any settings. Some script-driven software platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and being supplied with full root-level access to the dedicated web hosting server is crucial for administering a web store. Other hosting service providers do not provide full server root access, but help the customer activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes complete root-level access.
