Explanation of Dedicated Hosting

Free and paid shared plans are among the most popular website hosting products on the market.

If you desire a rock steady, leading-edge shared hosting platform that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your best alternative.

Handle the Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web server hosting solution, you lease a whole physical server whose system resources will be used only by your sites.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting vendor, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated hosting plan. In either situation, the party handling the dedicated server has access to a software tool to restart it at any particular time. Management is carried out through a hosting Control Panel GUI that allows you to keep track of the services running on the server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting firms offer dedicated hosting using one particular Operating System, whereas others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on a different OS, while PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the web host offers and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms required in order to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated machine, you can upload your web files and bring the website online. The majority of web hosting distributors give full root access, i.e. you can activate any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Particular script-based platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Lots of e-commerce software scripts, for instance, involve such a precondition, and getting complete server root access to the dedicated hosting server is critical for establishing a web storefront. Other hosting distributors do not provide full root access, but help the client install the required software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full server root access.
