Free and paid shared plans are among the most widely used hosting products on the marketplace. They are splendid for small-scale online portals that do not request a lot of system resources and do not get that many web site visitors, but for high resource-requiring online portals with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful platform is demanded. If you are seeking a robust, cutting-edge shared hosting solution that can deal with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your perfect alternative.

Handle the Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you rent a whole machine whose system resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processors functioning at a particular speed, some amount of memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to handle intense load and certain software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the websites hosted on it to be accessible on the web.

Managed Dedicated Servers Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting supplier, or by the customer, on the basis of the particular dedicated server plan. In either instance, the side managing the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific moment. Administration is carried out via a CP graphical user interface that permits you to keep track of the processes running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting vendors provide dedicated servers using one particular Operating System, whereas others give clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not work on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will function on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, examine what the web host provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software platforms required to administer a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated machine, you can upload your web site files and get the website online. The majority of web hosting suppliers offer root access, i.e. you can install any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Some script-driven platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Lots of shopping cart scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and being offered complete server root access to the dedicated hosting server is decisive for building a web store. Other hosting vendors do not give root-level access, but help the customer activate the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which offers root access.

Dedicated Server by 'Mad Host'

The files on the dedicated hosting server can be administered either via a Secure Shell (SSH) session or through a hosting Control Panel user interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are 10's of CP GUIs in existence, and typically providers provide a few of them, and with complete root-level access at hand, the client can activate any of them. All website files, databases, e-mail addresses, access logs and program installations are managed effortlessly via a graphical interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Particular hosting Control Panels also include a reseller back office console, so if you get a dedicated hosting server, you can not only host your files, but also sell shared web hosting packages to other clients to make profit.
