What are Dedicated Servers?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most commonly used website hosting products on the marketplace. They are okay for small-size websites that do not request plenty of resources and do not get that many website visitors, but for high resource-demanding sites with many thousands of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you are seeking a rock solid, no-holds-barred shared hosting solution that can cope with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated server is your most excellent option.

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

With the dedicated hosting service, you rent a whole server whose system resources will be used solely by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors operating at a given speed, a given amount of memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A server is actually a computer with hardware meant to cope with intense load and some software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the websites stored on it to be visible on the web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting supplier, or by the customer, on the basis of the particular dedicated server plan. In either situation, the side managing the physical server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any time. Management is done through a CP GUI that permits you to monitor the tasks running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various web hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Particular hosting suppliers provide dedicated servers using one given Operating System, while others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites necessitate a Windows web server, for instance, and will not perform on another OS, while PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will function on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, learn what the hosting service provider provides and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software needed in order to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your web files and take the site online. Most hosts give root privileges, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Given script-based software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Lots of e-commerce scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and being supplied with complete root-level access to the dedicated server is decisive for making a web storefront. Other hosts do not offer full server root access, but help the customer activate the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting service, which offers full root privileges.
