Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widely used website hosting products on the marketplace. They are OK for small-size web pages that do not require lots of system resources and do not receive that many web site visitors, but for high resource-demanding web pages with many thousands of viewers, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you desire a steady, leading-edge web hosting platform that can deal with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated hosting is your best alternative.

Tackle the Heavy Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated server hosting service, you lease an entire web server whose resources will be utilized solely by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs running at a particular speed, a given amount of memory, one or more disk drives, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration designed to cope with heavy load and specific software activated on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which allows the websites stored on it to be visible on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting vendor, or by the client, based on the particular dedicated hosting package. In either case, the side managing the dedicated web server has access to a software tool to restart it at any time. Management is carried out through a hosting Control Panel graphical interface that enables you to check the services running on the machine.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, and so on. Given hosting suppliers provide dedicated hosting using one given OS, while others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, examine what the hosting company offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms required in order to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you obtain the web hosting server, you can upload your files and get the site online. Most web hosts give complete root access, in other words you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and alter any settings. Specific script-powered software platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Plenty of e-commerce software scripts, for example, involve such a precondition, and gaining complete root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for developing a web shop. Other web hosting suppliers do not offer root privileges, but help the client activate the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which offers full server root privileges.

Dedicated Hosting by 'The Great Host'

The web site files on the dedicated hosting server can be managed either through a Secure Shell (SSH) session or through a hosting CP interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of web hosting Control Panel graphical interfaces in existence, and typically hosting corporations provide a couple of them, and with full root-level access at hand, the client can install any of them. All files, databases, electronic mail accounts, access logs and script installations are handled effortlessly through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Some Control Panels also have a reseller backend dashboard, so if you choose a dedicated hosting server, you can not simply host your web site files, but also sell shared website hosting packages to other customers to make profit. We, at The Great Host, offer free-of-charge invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each and every dedicated hosting package of ours, which allows you to constitute your own hosting company and make money in no time because the web hosting market niche is constantly flourishing.
