Free and paid shared plans are one of the most extensively used website hosting solutions on the market. They are splendid for small-sized web pages that do not demand a lot of resources and do not receive that many visitors, but for content-heavy web portals with many 1000's of visitors, a more powerful platform is required. If you are seeking a solid, avant-garde web hosting platform that can deal with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your perfect option.

Tackle the Intense Load Created by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you rent an entire physical machine whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs operating at a particular speed, a given amount of memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated web server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to tackle heavy load and given software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the websites accommodated on it to be reachable online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the provider, or by the client, based on the given dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the side managing the dedicated machine has access to a software platform to restart it at any given moment. Administration is done through a Control Panel user interface that permits you to keep track of the services running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, etc. Some hosting companies provide dedicated hosting utilizing one given OS, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows web server, for example, and will not operate on a different OS, while PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the hosting vendor provides and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software required in order to manage a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your files and bring the website online. The majority of web hosting service providers offer full root-level access, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Certain script-powered software platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Plenty of e-commerce scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and being provided with full root access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for kicking off a web shop. Other hosting distributors do not offer root access, but help the customer activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared to the unmanaged hosting service, which includes complete root-level access.

Dedicated Hosting by 'Hosting Domain'

The web site files on the dedicated hosting server can be administered either through a Secure Shell (SSH) client or through a CP tool like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of Control Panel GUIs in existence, and typically web hosting companies provide a number of them, and with complete root access at hand, the client can activate any of them. All files, databases, e-mail box accounts, access logs and program installations are managed effortlessly through a GUI in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Given web hosting CPs also have a reseller backend console, so if you purchase a dedicated hosting server, you can not only host your web site files, but also offer shared hosting plans to other people to earn money. We, at Hosting Domain, offer free billing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated hosting plan of ours, which enables you to build your own personal hosting corporation and gain revenue very fast since the hosting market is incessantly flourishing.
