Free and paid shared packages are among the most widespread website hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small-sized websites that do not require a lot of system resources and do not draw that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-consuming sites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you demand an advanced, top-quality web hosting platform that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your most appropriate choice.

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

With the dedicated hosting solution, you rent a whole web hosting server whose system resources will be utilized solely by your web sites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more microprocessors operating at a particular speed, a given amount of memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration meant to tackle high load and some software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the web sites accommodated on it to be reachable on the World Wide Web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting supplier, or by the customer, based on the specific dedicated hosting plan. In either instance, the party handling the web hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any moment. Administration is done through a Control Panel GUI that allows you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the dedicated hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are various server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Certain hosts offer dedicated hosting running one particular Operating System, while others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites necessitate a Windows server, for instance, and will not function on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, find out what the web hosting distributor offers and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software apps required to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the web server, you can upload your web site files and bring the site online. Most web hosting vendors grant complete root-level access, in other words you can activate any software on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Certain script-powered platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Many e-commerce software scripts, for instance, involve such a requirement, and receiving root access to the dedicated hosting server is essential for setting up a web shop. Other hosting suppliers do not provide root privileges, but help the customer install the required software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which offers complete root-level access.

Dedicated Hosting by 'Xen Effect Studio'

The web files on the dedicated hosting server can be managed either through a Secure Shell (SSH) tunnel or through a Control Panel graphical user interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of web hosting CP graphical interfaces in existence, and usually hosting distributors offer a few of them, and with complete root-level access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All web site files, databases, e-mailboxes, access logs and program installations are handled easily via a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Certain hosting Control Panels also comprise a reseller back office console, so if you select a dedicated hosting server, you can not just host your web files, but also sell shared web hosting plans to different persons to earn cash. We, at Xen Effect Studio, offer charge-free invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated hosting plan of ours, which permits you to set up your very own web hosting firm and make cash in no time as the hosting market niche is constantly flowering.
