Definition of Dedicated Server Plans

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most extensively used web hosting products on the marketplace. They are splendid for small-sized websites that do not necessitate plenty of system resources and do not get that many web site visitors, but for large-scale websites with many 1000's of viewers, a more advanced solution is necessary. If you are searching for a rock solid, no-holds-barred shared hosting platform that can tackle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated server is your most excellent alternative.

Tackle the Intense Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease a whole physical machine whose system resources will be used solely by your websites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more processing units operating at a given speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration meant to cope with high load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the websites hosted on it to be available on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, on the basis of the concrete dedicated server package. In either situation, the side managing the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any time. Management is done through a web hosting CP graphical interface that allows you to check the services running on the dedicated server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Certain web hosting distributors offer dedicated servers utilizing one particular OS, whereas others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not work on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will function on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated server, check what the host offers and what the needs of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software platforms required to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you get the web server, you can upload your files and bring the web site online. Most web hosting firms grant root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Certain script-based platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Plenty of e-commerce scripts, for example, impose such a precondition, and being bestowed with full root access to the dedicated server is essential for having a web storefront. Other providers do not grant root-level access, but help the client install the required software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes complete root access.
