Free and paid shared packages are one of the most commonly used website hosting products on the market. They are OK for small online portals that do not require lots of resources and do not attract that many website visitors, but for heavy resource-requiring sites with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is needed. If you demand a stable, top-notch hosting platform that can cope with even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your most excellent alternative.

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

With the dedicated web server hosting solution, you rent an entire web server whose system resources will be used only by your web sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units running at a specific speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware designed to tackle heavy load and specific software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the websites hosted on it to be visible on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting company, or by the client, on the basis of the particular dedicated server plan. In either instance, the side administering the physical server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any particular time. Management is carried out through a web hosting Control Panel user interface that permits you to check the services running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Specific web hosting suppliers offer dedicated servers using one given Operating System, while others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows web server, for instance, and will not work on another OS, while PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, learn what the web hosting provider provides and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software platforms needed in order to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you get the dedicated web server, you can upload your files and bring the site online. Most web hosting companies provide complete server root access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Some script-based platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Plenty of shopping cart software scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and being supplied with full root-level access to the dedicated server is crucial for setting up a web store. Other hosting corporations do not grant full server root privileges, but help the client activate the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged hosting solution, which offers root-level access.

Dedicated Server by 'Discount Hosting Store'

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated server can be managed either through a Secure Shell (SSH) client or through a hosting CP graphical user interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of web hosting Control Panel GUIs available, and usually web hosts offer several of them, and with full root access at hand, the client can activate any of them. All website files, databases, e-mailbox accounts, access logs and program installations are managed effortlessly through a graphical user interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Particular web hosting Control Panels also comprise a reseller backend dashboard, so if you pick a dedicated server, you can not merely host your files, but also offer shared website hosting packages to different persons to earn cash. We, at Discount Hosting Store, provide cost-free invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each and every dedicated server plan of ours, which allows you to launch your very own personal hosting company and make cash very fast as the web hosting business is constantly blooming.
