Dedicated Hosting Unmasked

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widespread website hosting solutions on the market.

If you are searching for a dependable, leading-edge web hosting platform that can tackle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated hosting is your most excellent alternative.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting supplier, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated hosting plan. In either case, the side handling the physical machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular moment. Administration is done via a hosting CP graphical user interface that enables you to keep track of the services running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting distributors provide dedicated hosting utilizing one particular OS, while others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on a different OS, while PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, discover what the web hosting supplier offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms required in order to administer a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the server, you can upload your files and bring the website online. The majority of web hosting companies offer full server root access, in other words you can activate any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Some script-driven software platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. A lot of e-commerce scripts, for example, have such a precondition, and being offered full root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is vital for having an online store. Other hosting firms do not grant root access, but help the client install the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes full root-level access.

Dedicated Hosting by 'Cloud Service'

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated hosting server can be handled either via a Secure Shell (SSH) console or through a hosting CP tool such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of CP interfaces available, and typically web hosting service providers offer several of them, and with root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All files, databases, email accounts, access logs and script installations are handled easily via a GUI in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Specific hosting Control Panels also include a reseller back office console, so if you buy a dedicated hosting server, you can not simply host your web site files, but also sell shared hosting plans to other people to make money.
