How Dedicated Hosting Servers Work

Free and paid shared plans are among the most commonly used hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are great for small sites that do not necessitate a lot of system resources and do not get that many website visitors, but for resource-requiring online portals with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced solution is required. If you require a rock steady, top-drawer web hosting solution that can deal with even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your most suitable choice.

Tackle the High Load Caused by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web hosting service, you lease a whole hosting server whose system resources will be used solely by your sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processors operating at a given speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to handle heavy load and specific software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the sites stored on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting service provider, or by the client, based on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the party administering the server has access to a software tool to restart it at any specific moment. Management is done through a web hosting CP graphical user interface that allows you to supervise the services running on the dedicated web server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are different hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting corporations provide dedicated hosting running one specific OS, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not work on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated hosting server, examine what the host provides and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software platforms required in order to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your web site files and take the site online. Most web hosting companies give root access, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Some script-driven platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. A lot of e-commerce software scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and obtaining complete root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for making a web shop. Other hosting firms do not offer complete root-level access, but help the customer install the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting service, which offers full root-level access.

The web files on the dedicated hosting server can be administered either via a Secure Shell (SSH) terminal or via a hosting CP tool such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of web hosting Control Panel interfaces available, and normally hosting corporations offer a couple of them, and with root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All web files, databases, email aliases, access logs and program installations are managed easily through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Certain hosting CPs also include a reseller backend dashboard, so if you get a dedicated hosting server, you can not simply host your files, but also sell shared website hosting packages to other people to make money. We, at ENSR.com, offer cost-free billing software and a domain reseller account with each and every dedicated hosting plan of ours, which allows you to establish your very own personal web hosting firm and make revenue very quickly since the hosting business is incessantly blooming.
