How Do Dedicated Web Hosting Servers Function?

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widely used web hosting solutions on the market. They are perfect for small web pages that do not request plenty of system resources and do not attract that many website visitors, but for resource-demanding web pages with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced platform is needed. If you require a robust, top-class website hosting platform that can handle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated web hosting is your most excellent choice.

Tackle the High Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server

With the dedicated server hosting service, you rent a whole web hosting server whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more CPUs operating at a particular speed, a certain amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is actually a computer with hardware designed to handle heavy load and certain software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the websites stored on it to be accessible online.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Solutions

A dedicated web hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting supplier, or by the customer, on the basis of the given dedicated web hosting plan. In either case, the side managing the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any specific moment. Management is done via a hosting Control Panel GUI that permits you to keep an eye on the processes running on the hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting service providers provide dedicated web hosting running one given Operating System, whereas others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not run on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated web hosting server, check what the web hosting distributor provides and what the needs of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server offers all the software applications needed in order to administer a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your website files and take the site online. The majority of web hosting providers give full server root access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated web hosting server and update any settings. Some script-powered platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Various e-commerce scripts, for example, have such a precondition, and receiving full server root access to the dedicated web hosting server is vital for having an online shop. Other web hosting service providers do not give complete root access, but help the client activate the required software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes complete root access.
