How Do Dedicated Servers Operate?
Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widespread web hosting solutions on the market. They are splendid for small-size online portals that do not request plenty of system resources and do not get that many visitors, but for resource-absorbing websites with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful platform is required. If you want a solid, first-class hosting platform that can cope with even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated package is your most appropriate option.
Handle the Load Generated by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server
With the dedicated web hosting service, you rent a whole physical server whose system resources will be used only by your web sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated server has one or more processing units operating at a specific speed, some amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware designed to tackle heavy load and specific software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the websites hosted on it to be reachable online.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the provider, or by the customer, based on the concrete dedicated package package. In either situation, the side managing the web hosting server has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific time. Management is done via a web hosting Control Panel tool that permits you to monitor the processes running on the dedicated machine.
Operating Systems for Dedicated Packages
There are various hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Specific hosting providers provide dedicated packages running one particular OS, while others offer customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on another OS, while PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will function on any OS. Prior to renting a dedicated server, find out what the hosting supplier offers and what the necessities of your website are.
Software Platforms for Dedicated Packages
By default, each dedicated server offers all the software needed to administer a 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 hosting server, you can upload your web files and get the site online. The majority of web hosting vendors provide complete root access, i.e. you can activate any software apps on the dedicated server and revise any settings. Some script-powered platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Many e-commerce scripts, for instance, include such a precondition, and being bestowed with root access to the dedicated server is crucial for having an online storefront. Other hosting vendors do not grant full server root access, but help the customer install the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as distinguished from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which offers full root privileges.
