Free and paid shared packages are among the most extensively used hosting products on the market. They are suitable for small-size online portals that do not require plenty of system resources and do not get that many visitors, but for resource-swallowing sites with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced solution is required. If you need a rock solid, cutting-edge web hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your perfect alternative.

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

With the dedicated hosting solution, you lease an entire physical machine whose system resources will be used only by your sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more central processing units operating at a certain speed, a given amount of memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware meant to tackle intense load and certain software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the sites accommodated on it to be visible on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting vendor, or by the customer, on the basis of the specific dedicated hosting plan. In either situation, the party managing the dedicated hosting server has access to a software tool to restart it at any specific time. Administration is done through a hosting CP graphical user interface that permits you to supervise the tasks running on the server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Certain web hosting providers offer dedicated hosting utilizing one specific Operating System, while others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not perform on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, examine what the hosting provider provides and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software needed in order to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your web files and get the site online. Most web hosting distributors grant full server root privileges, i.e. you can install any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Given script-based platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Various shopping cart scripts, for example, have such a requirement, and being offered root access to the dedicated hosting server is vital for building a web shop. Other web hosting service providers do not provide full root access, but help the customer install the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with complete server root access.
