Semi-Dedicated Server

Dedicated Server Hosting

Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular website hosting products on the marketplace. They are perfect for small-sized web sites that do not demand a lot of system resources and do not have that many visitors, but for high resource-consuming web pages with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more advanced platform is required. If you would like to have a reliable, first-rate hosting solution that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated machine is your finest choice.

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

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you lease an entire server whose system resources will be utilized only by your sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated machine has one or more processing units functioning at a specific speed, a specific amount of RAM, one or more disk drives, and so on. A web server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration meant to handle high load and given software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites stored on it to be available online.

Managed Dedicated Server Hosting Services

A dedicated machine can be managed either by the hosting corporation, or by the client, depending on the concrete dedicated web hosting plan. In either situation, the party administering the physical machine has access to a software platform to restart it at any time. Management is carried out via a web hosting CP interface that enables you to keep an eye on the processes running on the dedicated hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Web Servers

There are different server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Certain providers provide web servers utilizing one given Operating System, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows web server, for example, and will not perform on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will work on any Operating System. Prior to leasing a web server, check what the web hosting vendor offers and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

By default, each dedicated web hosting server offers all the software required to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated server, you can upload your web files and bring the site online. Most web hosting corporations grant root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software on the web hosting server and revise any settings. Some script-based platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Different shopping cart software scripts, for instance, impose such a precondition, and being offered root-level access to the dedicated web hosting server is critical for making a web store. Other web hosting providers do not give complete server root access, but help the customer install the needed software - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which offers complete root access.
