How Do Dedicated Hosting Servers Operate?

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widespread hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are great for small-size websites that do not necessitate lots of resources and do not have that many website visitors, but for heavy resource-demanding web pages with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you are searching for a steady, cutting-edge shared hosting platform that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most suitable alternative.

Tackle the High Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you lease an entire machine whose system resources will be used solely by your sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs operating at a certain speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard drives, etc. A dedicated server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration designed to cope with intense load and some software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the web sites stored on it to be reachable on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Servers Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting firm, or by the client, depending on the specific dedicated server package. In either situation, the side handling the machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific time. Management is carried out through a hosting CP graphical user interface that permits you to check the services running on the dedicated hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting distributors provide dedicated servers running one specific OS, while others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows server, for instance, and will not operate on another OS, while PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, check what the hosting distributor offers and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software needed to manage a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the web hosting server, you can upload your web site files and take the website online. Most hosting firms offer complete root access, in other words you can install any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Specific script-driven software platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Plenty of shopping cart scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and being offered full server root access to the dedicated hosting server is critical for establishing a web shop. Other web hosts do not provide full root access, but help the customer install the needed software - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes complete server root access.

The content on the dedicated hosting server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) session or through a web hosting Control Panel graphical interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of Control Panel tools in existence, and usually hosts offer a few of them, and with complete server root access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All website files, databases, electronic mail aliases, access logs and script installations are administered easily through a graphical interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Some web hosting Control Panels also comprise a reseller backend panel, so if you get a dedicated hosting server, you can not only host your files, but also sell shared website hosting plans to other users to earn money.
