Dedicated Hosting Plans Definition
Free and paid shared plans are one of the most famous web hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small-size web portals that do not demand plenty of system resources and do not get that many viewers, but for heavy resource-swallowing online portals with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced solution is needed. If you desire an advanced, hi-end web hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your perfect alternative.
Tackle the Intense Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server
With the dedicated server hosting solution, you rent an entire physical server whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processors running at a given speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, and so on. A web server is actually a computer with hardware intended to tackle intense load and certain software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the sites stored on it to be available on the web.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting supplier, or by the customer, based on the particular dedicated hosting plan. In either situation, the side administering the machine has access to a software platform to restart it at any time. Administration is carried out via a web hosting CP graphical interface that permits you to keep track of the tasks running on the dedicated web server.
Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting
There are various server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting corporations provide dedicated hosting utilizing one particular OS, while others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, learn what the web hosting supplier provides and what the requirements of your web site are.
Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting
By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software apps needed in order to administer a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your website files and get the website online. The majority of hosting corporations give complete root-level access, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Given script-based platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Many shopping cart scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and gaining full root access to the dedicated hosting server is key for running a web shop. Other web hosting distributors do not offer complete root-level access, but help the customer install the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged hosting solution, which offers full root-level access.
