Definition of Dedicated Web Hosting
Free and paid shared plans are among the most popular website hosting solutions on the market. They are perfect for small-scale web portals that do not request a lot of system resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for popular websites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more powerful platform is demanded. If you are looking for a steady, top-drawer website hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated web hosting is your perfect option.
Tackle the Intense Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server
With the dedicated server web hosting service, you lease a whole server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just as any computer, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more microprocessors functioning at a certain speed, a certain amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, etc. A web server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to tackle high load and certain software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the web sites stored on it to be accessible on the World Wide Web.
Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Services
A dedicated web hosting server can be managed either by the host, or by the customer, depending on the particular dedicated web hosting plan. In either instance, the party administering the web hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific time. Administration is carried out via a web hosting Control Panel user interface that allows you to supervise the tasks running on the physical machine.
OSs for Dedicated Web Hosting
There are different web hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Certain hosting companies provide dedicated web hosting using one particular Operating System, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not operate on another OS, while PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Prior to renting a dedicated web hosting server, learn what the hosting distributor provides and what the requirements of your website are.
Software Apps for Dedicated Web Hosting
By default, each dedicated web hosting server includes all the software applications needed to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the server, you can upload your web site files and get the web site online. Most hosting vendors grant root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated web hosting server and update any settings. Some script-powered platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Various shopping cart scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and being granted root-level access to the dedicated web hosting server is crucial for having an online shop. Other hosting suppliers do not offer root privileges, but help the customer install the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes complete root access.
