How Dedicated Hosting Servers Work

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widely used website hosting solutions on the market. They are suitable for small websites that do not demand plenty of system resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-requiring web pages with many thousands of website visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you would like to have a robust, no-holds-barred web hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your most suitable choice.

Handle the Heavy Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated solution, you rent an entire physical server whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just as any computer, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs running at a particular speed, a certain amount of RAM memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A hosting server is actually a computer with hardware meant to handle heavy load and specific software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the web sites accommodated on it to be available on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting firm, or by the customer, depending on the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either instance, the side managing the web server has access to a software tool to restart it at any particular moment. Administration is carried out via a web hosting CP interface that enables you to monitor the services running on the dedicated server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosting vendors offer dedicated hosting using one specific Operating System, while others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites need a Windows server, for instance, and will not operate on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, learn what the web hosting distributor offers and what the necessities of your website are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software needed in order to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the web server, you can upload your web files and get the site online. Most hosting firms grant root-level access, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Particular script-powered software platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for instance, involve such a precondition, and receiving full root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for building an online store. Other web hosting corporations do not give complete server root access, but help the customer activate the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with root privileges.

Dedicated Hosting by 'Supernet Domains'

The content on the dedicated hosting server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) console or via a web hosting CP interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of Control Panel GUIs in existence, and normally hosting vendors provide a number of them, and with full root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All web files, databases, e-mail aliases, access logs and program installations are managed effortlessly through a GUI in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Given hosting Control Panels also comprise a reseller backend console, so if you choose a dedicated hosting server, you can not just host your website files, but also sell shared website hosting packages to different clients to gain revenue. We, at Supernet Domains, provide charge-free billing software and a domain reseller account with each and every dedicated hosting package of ours, which permits you to set up your own personal hosting corporation and generate cash very quickly because the hosting business is incessantly proliferating.
