What Precisely is Dedicated Hosting?

Free and paid shared plans are among the most widespread website hosting products on the market. They are splendid for small-size websites that do not necessitate lots of resources and do not draw that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-absorbing web sites with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful solution is demanded. If you require a dependable, top-quality hosting solution that can tackle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated package is your most appropriate alternative.

Tackle the Intense Load Caused by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you rent an entire hosting server whose resources will be utilized solely by your sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units running at a particular speed, some amount of memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated web hosting server is actually a computer with hardware aimed to tackle intense load and some software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the sites stored on it to be visible on the Internet.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting distributor, or by the client, on the basis of the given dedicated package package. In either situation, the party managing the server has access to a software platform to restart it at any specific moment. Management is carried out via a web hosting Control Panel interface that enables you to check the services running on the physical machine.

OSs for Dedicated Packages

There are different web server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Particular hosting corporations offer dedicated packages running one given Operating System, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not work on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the web hosting provider provides and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software platforms needed to run 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 hosting server, you can upload your web site files and get the website online. The majority of web hosting providers give full root-level access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated server and change any settings. Particular script-powered software platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. A lot of shopping cart scripts, for instance, impose such a precondition, and obtaining root-level access to the dedicated server is critical for setting up an online shop. Other web hosting companies do not offer complete root-level access, but help the customer activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting service, which offers root-level access.

Dedicated Package by 'Pixalogy Hosting'

The content on the dedicated server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) terminal or via a Control Panel graphical user interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of CP user interfaces available, and normally web hosting suppliers offer a couple of them, and with complete root-level access at hand, the customer can install any of them. All web files, databases, e-mail accounts, access logs and program installations are handled easily via a graphical user interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Given hosting Control Panels also include a reseller back office dashboard, so if you obtain a dedicated server, you can not only host your web files, but also offer shared website hosting packages to other individuals to generate cash. We, at Pixalogy Hosting, offer free-of-cost billing software and a domain reseller account with every dedicated package package of ours, which enables you to launch your very own web hosting company and gain money very fast since the hosting market niche is constantly evolving.
