Dedicated Hosting Servers Explanation

Free and paid shared packages are among the most commonly used website hosting products on the marketplace. They are splendid for small-sized websites that do not request a lot of resources and do not get that many visitors, but for resource-requiring web pages with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful solution is required. If you are searching for a steady, topflight web hosting platform that can tackle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated hosting is your most excellent option.

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

With the dedicated hosting solution, you lease an entire physical machine whose resources will be utilized solely by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more CPUs functioning at a particular speed, a certain amount of memory, one or more hard disk drives, etc. A server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to cope with intense load and specific software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the sites hosted on it to be reachable on the web.

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the hosting provider, or by the client, on the basis of the given dedicated hosting plan. In either situation, the party administering the dedicated server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given moment. Administration is done through a web hosting CP graphical interface that permits you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the dedicated hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are various web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Given web hosting corporations offer dedicated hosting using one specific Operating System, whereas others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites demand a Windows server, for instance, and will not run on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML based sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, learn what the web hosting distributor offers and what the needs of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms needed to manage a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you get the web server, you can upload your files and take the website online. The majority of providers provide full server root access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Some script-based software platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to operate. Various shopping cart scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and getting full root-level access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for having an online store. Other hosting vendors do not provide root access, but help the client install the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which comes with root privileges.

Dedicated Hosting by 'Vector Prime Systems'

The files on the dedicated hosting server can be administered either via a Secure Shell (SSH) tunnel or through a web hosting Control Panel GUI such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of web hosting Control Panel tools in existence, and normally hosting corporations offer a few of them, and with root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All website files, databases, mail aliases, access logs and script installations are handled easily via a GUI in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Particular web hosting CPs also have a reseller back office panel, so if you opt for a dedicated hosting server, you can not merely host your web files, but also sell shared website hosting plans to different clients to make money. We, at Vector Prime Systems, provide free-of-cost invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated hosting plan of ours, which enables you to launch your very own personal hosting firm and make money in no time since the web hosting business niche is perpetually flowering.
