What In Fact are Dedicated Servers?
Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widely used hosting products on the market. They are OK for small-sized online portals that do not request a lot of resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for heavy resource-requiring web pages with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful solution is required. If you require a powerful, leading-edge hosting platform that can deal with even millions of daily hits, a dedicated package is your perfect choice.
Handle the Intense Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server
With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire machine whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units operating at a certain speed, some amount of RAM, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware meant to tackle intense load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the websites hosted on it to be visible on the web.
Managed Dedicated Hosting Services
A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting vendor, or by the client, on the basis of the particular dedicated package package. In either case, the party administering the server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular time. Management is carried out via a hosting Control Panel tool that permits you to supervise the tasks running on the dedicated server.
Operating Systems for Dedicated Packages
There are different web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting distributors offer dedicated packages running one specific Operating System, while others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites necessitate a Windows server, for instance, and will not perform on another OS, while PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated server, discover what the hosting service provider offers and what the needs of your website are.
Software Platforms for Dedicated Packages
By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software required in order to run a 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 web server, you can upload your web site files and bring the web site online. The majority of hosting providers provide complete root-level access, in other words you can install any software applications on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Given script-based platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to perform. Plenty of e-commerce scripts, for example, have such a requirement, and obtaining root-level access to the dedicated server is vital for kicking off a web storefront. Other hosting service providers do not provide complete root access, but help the client install the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full server root privileges.
