How Do Dedicated Servers Function?

Free and paid shared plans are among the most famous website hosting products on the market. They are applicable for small-sized web portals that do not need lots of system resources and do not have that many website visitors, but for busy web pages with many thousands of web site visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you require a rock steady, top-notch hosting platform that can tackle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated package is your most appropriate alternative.

Tackle the High Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server hosting service, you lease an entire physical machine whose resources will be used solely by your web sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors running at a given speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A web hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration meant to handle high load and given software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the websites accommodated on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting firm, or by the customer, on the basis of the concrete dedicated package package. In either instance, the side handling the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any moment. Management is done through a hosting Control Panel user interface that enables you to supervise the tasks running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Packages

There are various hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Given hosting providers offer dedicated packages utilizing one particular Operating System, whereas others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, examine what the web hosting corporation provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software apps required to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you get the hosting server, you can upload your web site files and take the web site online. Most hosting vendors provide full server root access, in other words you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Particular script-based software platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. A lot of e-commerce scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and getting complete server root access to the dedicated server is decisive for having an online shop. Other hosting companies do not give full root access, but help the client activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes root-level access.
