Explanation of Dedicated Web Hosting

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most commonly used website hosting products on the marketplace. They are good for small-size online portals that do not request plenty of resources and do not draw that many visitors, but for content-heavy online portals with many thousands of viewers, a more advanced solution is needed. If you desire a stable, first-class website hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated web hosting is your most suitable alternative.

Handle the Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you lease an entire hosting server whose resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more microprocessors running at a specific speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration designed to handle high load and certain software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the websites accommodated on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated web hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting corporation, or by the client, depending on the specific dedicated web hosting plan. In either situation, the party handling the hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any particular time. Administration is done through a web hosting CP graphical user interface that permits you to monitor the processes running on the dedicated hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are various server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting service providers provide dedicated web hosting using one specific Operating System, whereas others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows web server, for example, and will not operate on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated web hosting server, discover what the hosting vendor offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server includes all the software needed to manage a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web site files and bring the site online. The majority of web hosting firms offer full root access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated web hosting server and update any settings. Particular script-driven platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. A lot of e-commerce software scripts, for instance, impose such a precondition, and getting full root-level access to the dedicated web hosting server is key for launching a web shop. Other hosting companies do not give root-level access, but help the customer install the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with full root privileges.
