What Actually are Dedicated Servers?

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most famous hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are great for small-scale web pages that do not necessitate plenty of system resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for high resource-demanding web sites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more advanced solution is necessary. If you are seeking a rock solid, top-drawer hosting platform that can deal with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated server is your most appropriate choice.

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

With the dedicated server web hosting service, you lease an entire server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs running at a particular speed, a given amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, etc. A dedicated web server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration intended to handle high load and given software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the web sites hosted on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting vendor, or by the customer, on the basis of the particular dedicated server plan. In either instance, the side managing the hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any moment. Management is carried out via a web hosting CP graphical interface that enables you to keep track of the services running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting providers offer dedicated servers using one particular OS, while others offer clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites need a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, examine what the web hosting supplier provides and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software required to run a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you obtain the hosting server, you can upload your website files and bring the website online. Most hosting suppliers provide full server root access, in other words you can install any software on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Some script-powered platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Various e-commerce scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and being bestowed with root access to the dedicated server is crucial for developing a web store. Other hosting service providers do not provide root privileges, but help the customer install the necessary software - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes full root access.
