Free and paid shared plans are one of the most popular website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are excellent for small-size web portals that do not need plenty of system resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for high resource-requiring sites with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful platform is demanded. If you desire an advanced, cutting-edge shared hosting platform that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your perfect alternative.

Tackle the Heavy Load Created by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server hosting service, you rent an entire web hosting server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processing units functioning at a certain speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware aimed to tackle high load and some software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the web sites hosted on it to be visible on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting distributor, or by the customer, based on the specific dedicated server plan. In either situation, the party administering the dedicated server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given time. Management is carried out through a web hosting CP user interface that allows you to keep track of the tasks running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Given hosts offer dedicated servers running one specific OS, whereas others offer customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows web server, for instance, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, check what the web host offers and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software needed to manage a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated machine, you can upload your web site files and bring the site online. The majority of web hosts grant root-level access, in other words you can install any software on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Some script-based software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. A lot of shopping cart software scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and being granted full root access to the dedicated server is vital for setting up an online shop. Other hosting vendors do not grant full server root access, but help the client activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with complete root access.

The files on the dedicated server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) connection or through a CP GUI such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are 10's of CP graphical interfaces out there, and usually hosting service providers provide a couple of them, and with complete root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All files, databases, email mailboxes, access logs and script installations are managed effortlessly via a graphical user interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed.
