Description of Dedicated Servers

Free and paid shared plans are among the most extensively used hosting products on the marketplace. They are applicable for small-size web portals that do not necessitate plenty of resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for high resource-swallowing web sites with many 1000's of viewers, a more powerful solution is demanded. If you desire a rock steady, topflight shared hosting solution that can tackle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your most appropriate option.

Tackle the Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, on the basis of the concrete dedicated server package. In either instance, the party handling the dedicated hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular moment. Administration is done through a web hosting Control Panel graphical interface that permits you to monitor the tasks running on the hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Given hosting vendors provide dedicated servers utilizing one given OS, whereas others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not run on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated server, examine what the web hosting supplier provides and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software apps needed to run 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 obtain the dedicated machine, you can upload your website files and take the site online. The majority of hosting providers provide complete server root access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Given script-powered platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. A lot of shopping cart software scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and having full root-level access to the dedicated server is crucial for kicking off a web storefront. Other web hosting distributors do not give full root access, but help the client install the needed software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes full root privileges.
