Free and paid shared packages are one of the most extensively used hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are suitable for small-scale online portals that do not require plenty of resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for heavy resource-devouring web sites with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced solution is required. If you are seeking an advanced, leading-edge hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your best alternative.

Handle the Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting solution, you lease a whole machine whose system resources will be used only by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors running at a specific speed, a particular amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, etc. A dedicated server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration designed to tackle high load and certain software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites stored on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web host, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated server plan. In either instance, the party managing the web hosting server has access to a software platform to reboot it at any given time. Administration is carried out through a hosting CP GUI that enables you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the dedicated hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting corporations offer dedicated servers using one specific Operating System, whereas others give clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites need a Windows server, for instance, and will not run on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, learn what the web hosting provider provides and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software platforms required in order to run a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated server, you can upload your web files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting companies grant complete root-level access, in other words you can install any software on the dedicated server and change any settings. Some script-driven platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Various shopping cart scripts, for instance, involve such a precondition, and being supplied with complete root access to the dedicated server is vital for making a web shop. Other web hosting suppliers do not give full server root privileges, but help the client install the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with complete root access.

Dedicated Server by 'Space Hostia'

The content on the dedicated server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) session or through a Control Panel tool like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of hosting CP interfaces in existence, and usually hosting providers offer a couple of them, and with full root-level access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All website files, databases, electronic mail aliases, access logs and program installations are handled easily through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Some CPs also include a reseller backend console, so if you select a dedicated server, you can not simply host your web site files, but also offer shared website hosting plans to other people to earn cash. We, at Space Hostia, provide free-of-charge invoicing software and a domain reseller account with every dedicated server package of ours, which allows you to constitute your very own hosting firm and generate money very fast because the hosting business is perpetually blossoming.
