How Do Dedicated Servers Function?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most commonly used web hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small-sized web sites that do not request plenty of system resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-demanding web portals with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful platform is necessary. If you are seeking a solid, first-rate hosting solution that can deal with even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your most suitable alternative.

Handle the High Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease a whole server whose resources will be used solely by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors functioning at a particular speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, etc. A dedicated web server is in fact a computer with hardware intended to cope with intense load and certain software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the web sites stored on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, based on the given dedicated server package. In either instance, the party managing the machine has access to a software tool to restart it at any particular moment. Administration is done through a CP graphical interface that enables you to keep an eye on the services running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Particular providers provide dedicated servers running one given OS, while others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows server, for example, and will not work on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, discover what the web hosting company provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software apps needed to run a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your website files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting service providers grant complete server root access, in other words you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Given script-driven software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Many e-commerce scripts, for instance, involve such a precondition, and being bestowed with full root-level access to the dedicated server is decisive for developing an online shop. Other hosting suppliers do not provide full server root access, but help the customer activate the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which offers full root access.
