What Do Dedicated Servers Denote?
Free and paid shared plans are among the most popular website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are OK for small web portals that do not need lots of system resources and do not get that many visitors, but for big sites with many 1000's of website visitors, a more advanced platform is demanded. If you demand a powerful, top-class hosting solution that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your most suitable alternative.
Tackle the Heavy Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server
With the dedicated solution, you rent an entire physical server whose resources will be used only by your sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs operating at a specific speed, a specific amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration intended to handle high load and certain software installed on it, such as web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the websites hosted on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the client, on the basis of the particular dedicated server package. In either instance, the side managing the physical machine has access to a software platform to reboot it at any specific moment. Administration is carried out through a CP user interface that allows you to supervise the processes running on the dedicated hosting server.
Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers
There are different hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, etc. Specific hosting vendors provide dedicated servers using one given Operating System, while others offer clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not function on a different OS, while PHP and HTML driven sites utilizing MySQL databases will function on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the web hosting distributor offers and what the requirements of your website are.
Software Apps for Dedicated Servers
By default, each dedicated server offers all the software applications required to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the server, you can upload your files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting providers grant root-level access, in other words you can install any software applications on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Some script-powered software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Plenty of shopping cart software scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and having root-level access to the dedicated server is critical for making an online shop. Other hosting companies do not offer complete root access, but help the client activate the required software - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting service, which comes with complete server root access.

The files on the dedicated server can be handled either via a Secure Shell (SSH) console or through a web hosting CP graphical user interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are 10's of Control Panel interfaces in existence, and normally hosting service providers provide a few of them, and with root-level access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All web site files, databases, mail addresses, access logs and script installations are handled easily via a graphical user interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Certain hosting Control Panels also include a reseller backend tool, so if you order a dedicated server, you can not just host your web files, but also offer shared web hosting plans to other people to gain revenue.
