How Do Dedicated Hosting Servers Work?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most famous hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are OK for small-scale web portals that do not necessitate lots of resources and do not receive that many viewers, but for content-heavy sites with many thousands of viewers, a more advanced platform is required. If you need a stable, hi-end web hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your most suitable alternative.

Handle the High Load Created by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated hosting solution, you rent an entire physical server whose resources will be used solely by your websites. Just like any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a particular speed, a particular amount of RAM, one or more hard disk drives, etc. A dedicated server is actually a computer with hardware intended to cope with intense load and some software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites stored on it to be accessible on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting distributor, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the party handling the machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific time. Administration is carried out via a CP user interface that enables you to check the processes running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are different hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Certain web hosting companies offer dedicated hosting utilizing one specific Operating System, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not work on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will function on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated hosting server, examine what the web hosting service provider offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software applications needed in order to administer a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the server, you can upload your web site files and get the web site online. The majority of web hosting firms give root access, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Given script-powered software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Many e-commerce scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and being bestowed with complete root access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for kicking off a web shop. Other providers do not provide full server root access, but help the customer install the required software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with full root access.

Dedicated Hosting by 'SOS Web Development'

The web site files on the dedicated hosting server can be handled either via a Secure Shell (SSH) terminal or through a web hosting CP tool like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are 10's of web hosting Control Panel interfaces available, and usually hosting providers offer a couple of them, and with full root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All website files, databases, email addresses, access logs and program installations are managed easily through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Some hosting Control Panels also have a reseller backend dashboard, so if you pick a dedicated hosting server, you can not only host your web files, but also sell shared website hosting packages to different users to earn revenue. We, at SOS Web Development, offer free-of-cost invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated hosting package of ours, which enables you to set up your own web hosting firm and gain revenue very quickly as the hosting business is perpetually blooming.
