Free and paid shared packages are one of the most extensively used website hosting products on the market. They are good for small-size websites that do not demand plenty of resources and do not get that many website visitors, but for resource-swallowing web pages with many thousands of web site visitors, a more powerful solution is needed. If you demand a rock solid, cutting-edge hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most suitable alternative.

Handle the Heavy Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you lease a whole web hosting server whose resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units functioning at a particular speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A web server is actually a computer with hardware aimed to tackle intense load and certain software activated on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be reachable on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web host, or by the customer, depending on the given dedicated server package. In either situation, the party administering the dedicated web server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any moment. Management is done via a Control Panel tool that allows you to check the services running on the hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Given web hosting vendors offer dedicated servers using one given Operating System, while others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows server, for example, and will not perform on a different OS, while PHP and HTML based sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated server, discover what the provider offers and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications needed to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your website files and take the website online. Most providers give full server root privileges, in other words you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and change any settings. Particular script-powered platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Different e-commerce software scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and being bestowed with complete root access to the dedicated server is essential for managing a web store. Other hosting distributors do not provide root-level access, but help the client activate the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with root-level access.
