Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widespread hosting products on the marketplace. They are applicable for small-sized web sites that do not necessitate lots of system resources and do not get that many website visitors, but for heavy resource-absorbing web portals with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful solution is necessary. If you want a steady, top-notch hosting solution that can handle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your best option.

Tackle the High Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you rent a whole web hosting server whose resources will be used only by your websites. Just as any computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units functioning at a particular speed, a particular amount of memory, one or more hard drives, etc. A web hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration intended to handle intense load and given software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the web sites accommodated on it to be available on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the client, based on the given dedicated server plan. In either situation, the party handling the web server has access to a software platform to restart it at any given time. Management is done through a Control Panel GUI that permits you to keep an eye on the services running on the dedicated web server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Certain web hosting firms offer dedicated servers utilizing one given OS, whereas others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites necessitate a Windows web server, for instance, and will not perform on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, discover what the web host offers and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications needed to run a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your web site files and bring the site online. The majority of hosting vendors grant complete server root access, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Particular script-powered platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Different shopping cart scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and being provided with root-level access to the dedicated server is crucial for having an online store. Other hosting companies do not grant root-level access, but help the customer activate the required software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full root-level access.

The web site files on the dedicated server can be managed either via a Secure Shell (SSH) tunnel or via a hosting Control Panel graphical interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of hosting CP GUIs out there, and usually web hosting vendors offer several of them, and with root-level access at hand, the client can install any of them. All website files, databases, email aliases, access logs and program installations are administered easily via a graphical interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Given Control Panels also include a reseller backend dashboard, so if you choose a dedicated server, you can not merely host your files, but also offer shared web hosting packages to different individuals to earn profit.
