Explanation of Dedicated Hosting

Free and paid shared packages are one of the most extensively used website hosting products on the marketplace. They are excellent for small-scale web portals that do not request a lot of resources and do not receive that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-demanding web pages with many 1000's of viewers, a more powerful platform is required. If you demand a steady, first-rate hosting solution that can tackle even millions of everyday visits, a dedicated package is your finest alternative.

Handle the Load Caused by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you lease an entire server whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units functioning at a certain speed, a given amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware intended to tackle intense load and certain software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the websites accommodated on it to be accessible online.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the hosting vendor, or by the customer, on the basis of the given dedicated package package. In either situation, the side administering the dedicated machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any particular moment. Administration is done via a web hosting Control Panel GUI that enables you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the dedicated web hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Packages

There are different server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Some hosting suppliers provide dedicated packages running one given Operating System, whereas others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET 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 operate on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, find out what the hosting company provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software required to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the web hosting server, you can upload your web files and get the site online. The majority of web hosting providers offer complete root-level access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Given script-driven software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for example, involve such a requirement, and receiving complete root access to the dedicated server is crucial for establishing an online store. Other web hosting corporations do not offer complete root access, but help the customer install the required software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes full root privileges.

The website files on the dedicated server can be handled either via a Secure Shell (SSH) session or through a web hosting CP tool like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on.

All website files, databases, mailbox aliases, access logs and program installations are administered easily through a graphical user interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Some web hosting CPs also include a reseller back office dashboard, so if you order a dedicated server, you can not simply host your files, but also sell shared web hosting plans to other people to make revenue. We, at Wight Hosting, provide free-of-cost invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated package package of ours, which enables you to launch your very own hosting company and earn money very quickly because the hosting business niche is incessantly enlarging.
