How Do Dedicated Servers Work?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most commonly used hosting solutions on the market. They are suitable for small web pages that do not require lots of resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-demanding web sites with many thousands of visitors, a more powerful platform is necessary. If you need a solid, top-notch shared hosting solution that can cope with even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your perfect choice.

Tackle the Load Created by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting solution, you lease an entire physical machine whose resources will be used only by your websites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units running at a particular speed, a certain amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware meant to handle heavy load and specific software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the web sites accommodated on it to be visible on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Servers Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting vendor, or by the customer, depending on the given dedicated server package. In either instance, the side administering the web hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular moment. Management is carried out via a hosting CP interface that allows you to keep track of the processes running on the dedicated web server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Given hosting companies provide dedicated servers running one specific OS, while others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not perform on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, examine what the hosting service provider offers and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software needed to administer a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your web site files and bring the site online. Most hosts grant full root privileges, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Particular script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Many e-commerce software scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and gaining complete root-level access to the dedicated server is vital for administering a web store. Other web hosting vendors do not give root access, but help the customer install the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes root access.
