Dedicated Web Hosting Explained

Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular website hosting products on the market. They are good for small-size web portals that do not request plenty of system resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for content-heavy web sites with many thousands of web site visitors, a more advanced solution is needed. If you need a dependable, avant-garde web hosting solution that can handle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated web hosting is your most suitable choice.

Tackle the Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated service, you rent an entire machine whose resources will be utilized solely by your web sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more processing units running at a given speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to handle intense load and specific software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the websites stored on it to be visible on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the client, depending on the particular dedicated web hosting package. In either situation, the side handling the physical machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular moment. Management is done via a hosting Control Panel tool that enables you to check the services running on the server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting suppliers offer dedicated web hosting using one given Operating System, whereas others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows server, for instance, and will not function on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will function on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, learn what the provider provides and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software platforms needed in order to run a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you obtain the dedicated hosting server, you can upload your files and take the site online. The majority of hosting distributors provide root privileges, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Specific script-driven platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Many shopping cart scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and having complete root access to the dedicated server is key for making an online storefront. Other web hosting corporations do not give full root privileges, but help the customer activate the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting service, which offers full server root access.

Dedicated Web Hosting by 'Lord Griffin IT Solutions'

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated server can be administered either via a Secure Shell (SSH) console or through a web hosting Control Panel interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of hosting Control Panel tools out there, and usually web hosting distributors provide a few of them, and with full server root access at hand, the client can activate any of them. All files, databases, mail aliases, access logs and program installations are administered easily through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Certain Control Panels also include a reseller back office console, so if you have a dedicated server, you can not only host your web site files, but also sell shared website hosting plans to other customers to gain profit. We, at Lord Griffin IT Solutions, provide charge-free invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated web hosting plan of ours, which enables you to found your own web hosting firm and generate money in no time since the web hosting market is incessantly evolving.
