Dedicated Packages Revealed

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widespread web hosting products on the marketplace. They are suitable for small-scale websites that do not necessitate lots of system resources and do not receive that many viewers, but for heavy resource-swallowing online portals with many 1000's of website visitors, a more advanced solution is demanded. If you want a dependable, no-holds-barred hosting solution that can handle even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated package is your most suitable option.

Handle the High Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you rent a whole machine whose resources will be used only by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs functioning at a specific speed, a certain amount of memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A dedicated hosting server is in fact a computer with hardware aimed to tackle high load and some software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the sites accommodated on it to be visible online.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting supplier, or by the client, depending on the particular dedicated package package. In either case, the side handling the dedicated server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific moment. Management is done through a web hosting CP user interface that allows you to supervise the tasks running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Packages

There are various web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, etc. Some web hosting corporations provide dedicated packages using one particular Operating System, whereas others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not operate on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based sites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, find out what the host offers and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications required to administer a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the hosting server, you can upload your web site files and bring the site online. Most hosting corporations give full server root access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated server and update any settings. Specific script-driven platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to work. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for instance, impose such a precondition, and getting full root-level access to the dedicated server is decisive for establishing an online shop. Other hosting vendors do not grant complete root-level access, but help the customer activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting service, which comes with full root access.
