Description of Dedicated Server Packages

Free and paid shared plans are among the most popular hosting products on the marketplace. They are splendid for small-size websites that do not need lots of system resources and do not get that many visitors, but for resource-consuming web portals with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you are seeking a steady, leading-edge shared hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated server is your best option.

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

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you rent an entire web server whose resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors operating at a certain speed, a certain amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, etc. A server is indeed a computer with hardware designed to cope with intense load and some software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the sites stored on it to be reachable on the web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the customer, on the basis of the specific dedicated server plan. In either case, the side managing the web hosting server has access to a software tool to restart it at any particular time. Administration is done through a CP interface that allows you to check the services running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Particular hosting vendors offer dedicated servers utilizing one particular Operating System, whereas others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not function on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will operate on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, find out what the web hosting vendor offers and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications required to administer a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the hosting server, you can upload your web files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting firms offer full server root access, in other words you can install any software applications on the dedicated server and update any settings. Specific script-based platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Various e-commerce software scripts, for example, have such a requirement, and being granted full server root access to the dedicated server is essential for building a web store. Other web hosts do not give full root privileges, but help the customer activate the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which offers complete root access.
