Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular website hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small-scale online portals that do not require a lot of system resources and do not draw that many visitors, but for high resource-devouring web pages with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced solution is required. If you demand a powerful, first-rate hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated server is your best option.

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

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you rent an entire machine whose resources will be used only by your sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processors operating at a given speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard drives, etc. A dedicated web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware meant to handle intense load and given software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites stored on it to be available on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be administered either by the host, or by the customer, on the basis of the particular dedicated server package. In either case, the party administering the dedicated web server has access to a software platform to restart it at any time. Management is done via a hosting Control Panel GUI that permits you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various web hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Given hosting service providers offer dedicated servers running one given Operating System, whereas others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not perform on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, discover what the hosting provider provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications needed in order to administer a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the hosting server, you can upload your web site files and bring the website online. The majority of web hosting vendors grant full root privileges, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Particular script-based software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Many e-commerce software scripts, for example, have such a requirement, and getting complete server root access to the dedicated server is essential for launching a web storefront. Other web hosting providers do not grant full server root access, but help the client install the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with root privileges.
