What Actually are Dedicated Servers?

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most famous hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are OK for small-size web sites that do not request a lot of system resources and do not receive that many viewers, but for high resource-demanding web pages with many 1000's of viewers, a more advanced platform is needed. If you would like to have a rock steady, leading-edge shared hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most suitable alternative.

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

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire web hosting server whose system resources will be used solely by your sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors operating at a certain speed, some amount of memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration designed to tackle intense load and certain software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the web sites hosted on it to be available online.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web host, or by the customer, on the basis of the specific dedicated server plan. In either instance, the side administering the web hosting server has access to a software tool to restart it at any moment. Management is done through a CP user interface that enables you to monitor the processes running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Particular web hosts offer dedicated servers running one specific OS, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites request a Windows server, for instance, and will not operate on another OS, while PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will function on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, discover what the hosting supplier offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software required to manage a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your website files and bring the website online. The majority of hosting distributors offer complete server root access, in other words you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated server and update any settings. Certain script-driven software platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to perform. Many e-commerce scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and obtaining complete server root access to the dedicated server is crucial for setting up a web shop. Other web hosting distributors do not provide full server root access, but help the customer activate the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes complete root access.

The content on the dedicated server can be managed either via a Secure Shell (SSH) connection or through a hosting Control Panel interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of hosting CP graphical user interfaces in existence, and typically providers provide a few of them, and with full root access at hand, the customer can activate any of them.
