Dedicated Servers Explained
Free and paid shared plans are one of the most popular hosting solutions on the market. They are OK for small-scale online portals that do not require plenty of system resources and do not have that many viewers, but for high resource-devouring web portals with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced solution is demanded. If you want a rock solid, top-notch hosting platform that can deal with even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your most excellent alternative.
Handle the High Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server
With the dedicated server hosting solution, you lease a whole machine whose system resources will be used only by your sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs running at a particular speed, a specific amount of RAM, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A web server is in fact a computer with hardware intended to tackle high load and certain software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the websites hosted on it to be reachable on the web.
Managed Dedicated Hosting Services
A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the client, based on the specific dedicated server plan. In either case, the side administering the dedicated server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any time. Management is carried out through a CP user interface that allows you to monitor the services running on the server.
OSs for Dedicated Servers
There are different web hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Specific hosting corporations provide dedicated servers utilizing one given OS, whereas others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows server, for example, and will not run on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, find out what the hosting company provides and what the requirements of your web site are.
Software Apps for Dedicated Servers
By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software required to manage a 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 hosting server, you can upload your website files and bring the web site online. Most web hosting corporations offer root access, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Specific script-powered platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Different e-commerce software scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and being granted complete root-level access to the dedicated server is critical for establishing a web store. Other web hosting vendors do not offer full root-level access, but help the customer activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with root-level access.
