What Exactly is Dedicated Hosting?

Informational portals, social networks and video sharing web sites are very popular and highly visited web portals that require lots of system resources to perform. The more viewers a web site is having concurrently, the more resources will be required to tackle all the requests from the customers' web browsers and to fulfill them. This is the reason why a dedicated server would be the optimal hosting environment for such pages.

Buying a dedicated server suggests that you get a whole server at your disposal. As opposed to the hosting services or the virtual private servers environment where you share a server with a certain number of other clients, with a dedicated server you can make use of all the resources for your online portals' requirements.

Dedicated Server Hardware Equipment

There are different web server configurations that you can buy. They differ in terms of the hardware specifications they include - processors, RAM quotas, hard drives, network cards, but they may also impose a monthly bandwidth limit. For a highly visited site, or if you want to host lots of sites on one single server, you may consider a more advanced configuration.

Going Dedicated? How Much? That's the Point.

At Ply Hosting we supply diverse architectures to meet the demands of every customer - from a small-scale web hosting server for one single website to a very advanced configuration that can tackle very popular web portals and thousands of guests at any moment. The central processing unit and server storage quotas and the database connections can be restricted solely by the web hosting server hardware itself.

Dedicated Hosting - Advantages and website hosting Control Panels

One notable advantage of the dedicated hosting over a shared hosting account is that you obtain complete server root access, so you can install any software that you want. Certain e-commerce shopping cart scripts, for example, necessitate extra software that cannot be installed on a shared web hosting server as it would influence all the clients on it. With a dedicated server, you have complete liberty to install anything. You can administer the web hosting server either by utilizing the SSH network protocol, or through a website hosting CP user interface. Here, you have an alternative again. You can utilize a CP supplied by the web hosting firm, or you can utilize your own one. Some well-known website hosting CP user interfaces are Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and H-Sphere. Most web hosting Control Panel interfaces are licence-free (Hepsia), while others (cPanel) demand a monthly licence tax to utilize them.

Turn Your Dedicated Server Into a Money Making Machine

Along with the option to host your own domain name, a dedicated server offers you the opportunity to launch your own hosting enterprise and to sell web hosting packages to other individuals. Many web hosting CP tools come with a hosting reseller admin software counterpart, so if you get a billing transaction & customer support system such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, you can start your online business, creating different web hosting plans for your future clients. You can also provide technical support to your customers directly, and, since you have complete root access, you can install software applications on demand, so your clients will be pleased with the service they obtain.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

We also offer an additional paid administration solution. Our system administrators will aid you with any problem that you may experience with your dedicated hosting - an OS update, a script installation, a troubleshooting procedure, or any other predicament that you may encounter.

A dedicated server - the Top website hosting Solution

A dedicated server is the paramount website hosting solution if you are searching for an advanced and steady web hosting service without bothering about exceeding any usage quotas. Whether you will host your own sites, or you are a web site designer with numerous customers and need web hosting server disk space for your work, or you want to earn some extra cash by offering the server disk space to others, a dedicated server will offer you the autonomy that no other website hosting package can.
