Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widespread web hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small websites that do not require a lot of system resources and do not attract that many viewers, but for heavy resource-swallowing online portals with many thousands of viewers, a more advanced solution is demanded. If you want a dependable, no-holds-barred hosting solution that can cope with even millions of daily visits, a dedicated server is your finest option.

Tackle the Heavy Load Generated by Your Web Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server web hosting service, you rent a whole hosting server whose resources will be utilized solely by your websites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processing units functioning at a particular speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard drives, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is indeed a computer with hardware intended to tackle heavy load and given software activated on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the web sites hosted on it to be available online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting firm, or by the client, on the basis of the particular dedicated server plan. In either instance, the side managing the physical machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given moment. Management is done via a web hosting CP graphical user interface that allows you to keep track of the processes running on the web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, etc. Certain web hosting companies offer dedicated servers using one given Operating System, while others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows web server, for example, and will not operate on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before renting a dedicated server, check what the web hosting firm provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software platforms needed in order to manage a site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you get the dedicated web server, you can upload your website files and get the site online. The majority of hosting vendors provide root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and update any settings. Some script-powered software platforms need server-side libraries that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. Various shopping cart software scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and being given root access to the dedicated server is crucial for managing an online storefront. Other hosting corporations do not provide full server root access, but help the customer activate the required software - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with full root-level access.

Dedicated Server by 'Blue Domain Hosting'

The content on the dedicated server can be managed either via a Secure Shell (SSH) tunnel or through a Control Panel graphical interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of hosting Control Panel tools available, and usually web hosting providers offer several of them, and with complete root access at hand, the client can activate any of them. All web site files, databases, e-mail accounts, access logs and program installations are managed easily through a graphical interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Certain web hosting Control Panels also comprise a reseller backend panel, so if you have a dedicated server, you can not only host your web files, but also sell shared web hosting plans to different clients to earn money. We, at Blue Domain Hosting, offer charge-free invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated server plan of ours, which enables you to build your own web hosting firm and generate revenue very quickly as the hosting market is perpetually flowering.
