What Do Dedicated Servers Mean?

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widely used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are appropriate for small-scale web sites that do not require plenty of system resources and do not have that many web site visitors, but for busy websites with many thousands of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you would like to have a robust, cutting-edge shared hosting solution that can handle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your best alternative.

Tackle the High Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire server whose resources will be used only by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors operating at a specific speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware meant to tackle high load and certain software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be accessible on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the client, based on the particular dedicated server package. In either instance, the party managing the hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any moment. Management is carried out via a CP user interface that enables you to check the services running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various web hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting service providers offer dedicated servers running one particular Operating System, whereas others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not function on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will function on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, learn what the hosting supplier provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software platforms needed to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you obtain the hosting server, you can upload your web files and bring the website online. The majority of web hosts grant complete server root access, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Specific script-powered software platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Plenty of e-commerce software scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and being bestowed with root-level access to the dedicated server is vital for managing an online store. Other hosting suppliers do not provide root access, but help the customer install the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which offers full root access.

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated server can be managed either through a Secure Shell (SSH) connection or through a CP interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of web hosting CP GUIs out there, and normally hosting firms provide a few of them, and with root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All website files, databases, mails, access logs and program installations are managed easily via a GUI in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Some web hosting CPs also have a reseller back office dashboard, so if you settle on a dedicated server, you can not simply host your website files, but also offer shared web hosting packages to different people to generate cash.
