Dedicated Web Hosting Definition

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most commonly used web hosting solutions on the market. They are perfect for small-size web pages that do not require a lot of resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for high resource-requiring websites with many thousands of web site visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you desire a solid, avant-garde web hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated web hosting is your finest option.

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

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease a whole hosting server whose resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units operating at a specific speed, a certain amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, etc. A dedicated web server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration designed to cope with intense load and certain software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites stored on it to be accessible online.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting corporation, or by the client, based on the concrete dedicated web hosting package. In either instance, the party managing the dedicated web server has access to a software platform to restart it at any specific time. Management is done via a hosting Control Panel interface that allows you to keep track of the services running on the machine.

OSs for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Some hosting service providers offer dedicated web hosting using one specific Operating System, while others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows server, for example, and will not run on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated server, find out what the hosting provider offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications needed to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the hosting server, you can upload your files and bring the web site online. The majority of hosting providers provide root access, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Certain script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Many shopping cart software scripts, for instance, impose such a precondition, and getting root-level access to the dedicated server is crucial for managing an online store. Other hosting vendors do not offer root access, but help the client install the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full server root privileges.
