Free and paid shared plans are among the most widely used web hosting products on the marketplace. They are applicable for small web portals that do not need lots of resources and do not get that many viewers, but for resource-requiring web sites with many 1000's of viewers, a more advanced solution is required. If you need an advanced, no-holds-barred website hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of daily visits, a dedicated web hosting is your most suitable option.

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

With the dedicated service, you rent a whole web server whose system resources will be utilized only by your web sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated web hosting server has one or more central processing units functioning at a given speed, a particular amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration meant to tackle heavy load and given software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the sites hosted on it to be accessible on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Solutions

A dedicated web hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting vendor, or by the client, on the basis of the concrete dedicated web hosting package. In either case, the party managing the dedicated hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular time. Administration is done through a Control Panel graphical user interface that enables you to monitor the processes running on the dedicated hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are various web server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Some web hosting service providers provide dedicated web hosting using one given OS, while others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows server, for instance, and will not perform on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated web hosting server, discover what the web hosting firm provides and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server comes with all the software applications needed to administer a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the web hosting server, you can upload your website files and take the site online. The majority of web hosting providers provide full server root privileges, in other words you can activate any software on the dedicated web hosting server and modify any settings. Particular script-powered platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Many shopping cart scripts, for example, have such a requirement, and being granted full server root access to the dedicated web hosting server is decisive for developing a web shop. Other web hosting distributors do not provide full root access, but help the client activate the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes full root access.
