Free and paid shared plans are among the most widely used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are OK for small-sized web pages that do not need a lot of system resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for resource-demanding websites with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you are seeking a solid, top-notch hosting solution that can tackle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most appropriate option.

Handle the Heavy Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web hosting service, you rent an entire machine whose resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs operating at a given speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A web server is actually a computer with hardware intended to tackle intense load and certain software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the sites accommodated on it to be visible on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting provider, or by the client, based on the specific dedicated server package. In either case, the side managing the dedicated hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific time. Administration is carried out via a web hosting Control Panel graphical interface that permits you to monitor the tasks running on the dedicated web server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Certain web hosting distributors offer dedicated servers running one particular Operating System, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows server, for instance, and will not perform on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated server, learn what the web hosting corporation provides and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software apps required in order to administer a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the web hosting server, you can upload your web site files and get the web site online. The majority of hosting corporations offer full server root privileges, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Particular script-based software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Many shopping cart scripts, for instance, involve such a requirement, and getting root access to the dedicated server is decisive for running an online shop. Other web hosting distributors do not offer root privileges, but help the customer activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full server root privileges.
