How Dedicated Servers Web Hosting Operates

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widely used website hosting solutions on the market. They are okay for small web pages that do not demand plenty of resources and do not receive that many viewers, but for resource-consuming web portals with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you would like to have a rock steady, hi-end shared web hosting platform that can tackle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated server web hosting is your perfect option.

Handle the High Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Web Hosting Server

With the dedicated server hosting service, you rent an entire physical machine whose resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more processing units running at a specific speed, a given amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A server is actually a computer with hardware meant to tackle intense load and specific software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the sites hosted on it to be visible on the Internet.

A dedicated web hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting vendor, or by the customer, depending on the specific dedicated server web hosting package. In either case, the side handling the dedicated hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular time. Administration is done via a web hosting CP graphical user interface that permits you to monitor the services running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

There are various hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Some hosts offer dedicated server web hosting using one given OS, whereas others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites request a Windows web server, for example, and will not run on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated web hosting server, check what the hosting supplier offers and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server offers all the software platforms needed to administer a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your web files and get the website online. Most hosting companies provide root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated web hosting server and modify any settings. Specific script-driven platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. Different e-commerce software scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and being offered root access to the dedicated web hosting server is critical for establishing an online store. Other web hosting vendors do not grant complete root-level access, but help the client install the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full root access.
