How Do Dedicated Servers Operate?

Free and paid shared plans are among the most commonly used website hosting products on the market. They are appropriate for small-sized websites that do not require plenty of resources and do not get that many viewers, but for resource-devouring web portals with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful solution is required. If you need a stable, top-quality hosting platform that can tackle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated server is your most excellent option.

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

With the dedicated service, you lease a whole hosting server whose system resources will be used only by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs operating at a particular speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to handle heavy load and some software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the sites hosted on it to be visible online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting corporation, or by the client, on the basis of the given dedicated server plan. In either case, the party handling the web hosting server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given time. Administration is carried out via a hosting CP graphical user interface that enables you to keep an eye on the processes running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Certain hosts offer dedicated servers utilizing one particular OS, whereas others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not run on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML based sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated server, discover what the host offers and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software needed to run 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 web server, you can upload your web site files and get the website online. Most web hosting vendors provide root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Specific script-based platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and receiving root-level access to the dedicated server is essential for establishing a web storefront. Other web hosting vendors do not offer complete root-level access, but help the client install the required software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting service, which includes full server root access.
