Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular website hosting products on the marketplace. They are applicable for small-scale sites that do not request plenty of resources and do not have that many viewers, but for busy online portals with many thousands of viewers, a more powerful solution is required. If you need a steady, first-class hosting solution that can handle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated server is your perfect choice.

Tackle the High Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated service, you lease a whole physical server whose resources will be used solely by your sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors operating at a particular speed, a specific amount of memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated web server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration meant to tackle heavy load and specific software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, and so on, which permits the sites stored on it to be accessible online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting distributor, or by the client, on the basis of the concrete dedicated server plan. In either case, the side administering the dedicated machine has access to a software platform to restart it at any particular moment. Management is carried out through a Control Panel graphical user interface that permits you to supervise the processes running on the machine.

OSs for Dedicated Servers

There are different web hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting providers offer dedicated servers using one given OS, while others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for example, and will not perform on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will run on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, check what the web hosting firm provides and what the necessities of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software needed to run 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 machine, you can upload your website files and take the site online. The majority of web hosting corporations grant full server root privileges, in other words you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and update any settings. Specific script-powered platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Lots of shopping cart software scripts, for instance, include such a requirement, and being bestowed with full root access to the dedicated server is essential for developing a web storefront. Other web hosting suppliers do not grant root privileges, but help the client activate the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting service, which includes complete root access.

Dedicated Server by 'IT Home Systems'

The website files on the dedicated server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) client or through a web hosting Control Panel interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are tens of CP interfaces in existence, and normally web hosting firms offer several of them, and with full root-level access at hand, the customer can install any of them. All web site files, databases, mails, access logs and program installations are managed effortlessly via a graphical interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Particular web hosting CPs also have a reseller back office console, so if you opt for a dedicated server, you can not simply host your website files, but also offer shared web hosting plans to other individuals to earn revenue. We, at IT Home Systems, provide free-of-cost billing software and a domain reseller account with each and every dedicated server package of ours, which allows you to build your own personal web hosting firm and make revenue very quickly because the hosting business niche is constantly increasing.
