Free and paid shared packages are one of the most famous website hosting products on the marketplace. They are applicable for small-sized web portals that do not require plenty of resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for content-heavy web portals with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you need a powerful, top-class shared hosting platform that can handle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated server is your best choice.

Tackle the Heavy Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you lease an entire web hosting server whose resources will be used solely by your sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs functioning at a specific speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disk drives, etc. A dedicated hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to handle high load and certain software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the websites hosted on it to be available on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Servers Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web host, or by the client, on the basis of the concrete dedicated server plan. In either case, the side managing the physical server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any moment. Management is done via a web hosting CP tool that permits you to check the tasks running on the dedicated hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Given web hosting providers provide dedicated servers running one particular OS, whereas others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not operate on a different OS, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, find out what the web hosting distributor offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications required in order to manage a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the web server, you can upload your web site files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting firms give full root privileges, in other words you can install any software on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Certain script-driven software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Various e-commerce software scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and having complete server root access to the dedicated server is crucial for setting up an online storefront. Other hosting vendors do not provide full server root privileges, but help the customer install the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged hosting solution, which offers full root privileges.

All website files, databases, email mailboxes, access logs and script installations are administered easily through a GUI in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary.
