Dedicated Hosting Servers Defined

Free and paid shared plans are among the most popular web hosting solutions on the market. They are appropriate for small-sized websites that do not demand plenty of resources and do not receive that many web site visitors, but for high resource-demanding online portals with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you are searching for a reliable, first-rate web hosting platform that can handle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated hosting is your most excellent choice.

Tackle the Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease an entire web server whose resources will be used only by your web sites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs functioning at a particular speed, a particular amount of memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated web server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration intended to handle high load and some software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the websites stored on it to be accessible online.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the host, or by the customer, based on the particular dedicated hosting plan. In either case, the side handling the physical machine has access to a software tool to restart it at any specific time. Administration is done via a web hosting CP graphical user interface that permits you to supervise the services running on the dedicated machine.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Particular hosts provide dedicated hosting using one specific OS, whereas others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows server, for example, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated hosting server, discover what the hosting provider offers and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms needed to run a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you get the web hosting server, you can upload your website files and bring the website online. Most web hosting vendors offer full root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Some script-driven platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Various e-commerce scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and getting complete root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is critical for developing a web store. Other web hosts do not grant root privileges, but help the customer activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with root access.

Dedicated Hosting by 'Xen Effect Studio'

The web site files on the dedicated hosting server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) console or through a hosting Control Panel tool like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of web hosting CP user interfaces in existence, and normally hosting vendors provide a couple of them, and with root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All website files, databases, mail accounts, access logs and program installations are managed easily through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Given hosting CPs also have a reseller backend panel, so if you buy a dedicated hosting server, you can not just host your website files, but also sell shared web hosting packages to different individuals to generate revenue. We, at Xen Effect Studio, offer charge-free billing software and a domain reseller account with each and every dedicated hosting package of ours, which allows you to found your very own personal hosting firm and gain profit in no time since the web hosting market is constantly blooming.
