Dedicated Hosting Plans Definition

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widely used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are applicable for small online portals that do not request a lot of system resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for high resource-swallowing websites with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced solution is necessary. If you require a robust, top-notch web hosting solution that can handle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your most appropriate alternative.

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

With the dedicated web hosting service, you rent a whole physical machine whose resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs operating at a particular speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware aimed to tackle high load and some software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the web sites hosted on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting corporation, or by the client, depending on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the side managing the web hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any given moment. Administration is carried out via a web hosting Control Panel user interface that permits you to supervise the services running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Given hosting vendors offer dedicated hosting using one specific OS, while others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites request a Windows web server, for instance, and will not operate on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the hosting distributor provides and what the needs of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software required in order to administer a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated machine, you can upload your web files and bring the site online. Most web hosting distributors provide complete server root access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Certain script-powered platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Plenty of shopping cart scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and being bestowed with full root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is essential for managing a web shop. Other hosting distributors do not offer root-level access, but help the customer activate the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with complete root access.
