How Does Dedicated Hosting Operate?
Free and paid shared plans are among the most famous website hosting products on the market. They are suitable for small web sites that do not need a lot of resources and do not have that many website visitors, but for heavy resource-swallowing websites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you are searching for a stable, topflight hosting solution that can deal with even millions of daily hits, a dedicated server is your perfect choice.
Handle the Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server
With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you lease a whole machine whose resources will be used solely by your sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs functioning at a certain speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, etc. A web server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration designed to cope with heavy load and some software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the websites accommodated on it to be reachable on the Internet.
Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions
A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting service provider, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated server plan. In either instance, the party managing the server has access to a software platform to restart it at any given moment. Administration is done through a CP graphical user interface that allows you to keep track of the tasks running on the dedicated server.
Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers
There are various web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Specific hosts provide dedicated servers running one given Operating System, while others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not work on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, discover what the web hosting service provider offers and what the requirements of your web site are.
Software Apps for Dedicated Servers
By default, each dedicated server includes all the software apps needed to administer a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your web files and get the site online. The majority of web hosting service providers give complete server root access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated server and change any settings. Certain script-driven platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Various shopping cart software scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and being bestowed with full root access to the dedicated server is key for running an online storefront. Other hosting companies do not offer full root-level access, but help the client activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which includes full root access.
