What Does Dedicated Hosting Denote?

Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular hosting solutions on the market. They are OK for small-scale web sites that do not demand lots of resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for popular websites with many 1000's of web site visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you are seeking a rock steady, first-class hosting solution that can deal with even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated package is your most excellent choice.

Tackle the Heavy Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you lease an entire server whose resources will be used solely by your websites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more CPUs operating at a given speed, a given amount of memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration meant to handle intense load and certain software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the sites stored on it to be visible on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting service provider, or by the client, based on the particular dedicated package package. In either instance, the side managing the web server has access to a software platform to restart it at any specific moment. Administration is done through a hosting CP interface that enables you to supervise the tasks running on the dedicated machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Packages

There are various hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosting suppliers offer dedicated packages using one particular OS, while others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites need a Windows web server, for example, and will not operate on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, discover what the hosting firm offers and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software apps required in order to manage 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 web hosting server, you can upload your web site files and get the website online. The majority of web hosting firms offer root privileges, in other words you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Particular script-based platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Many e-commerce scripts, for instance, impose such a requirement, and obtaining full root-level access to the dedicated server is key for launching an online storefront. Other hosting vendors do not provide full root access, but help the client activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with full root privileges.

Dedicated Package by 'Hosting Mexico'

The files on the dedicated server can be handled either via a Secure Shell (SSH) client or through a hosting CP graphical user interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of CP interfaces in existence, and typically web hosting corporations offer a couple of them, and with complete server root access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All web files, databases, e-mailboxes, access logs and script installations are handled easily through a graphical user interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Particular web hosting CPs also include a reseller backend console, so if you purchase a dedicated server, you can not simply host your files, but also sell shared website hosting plans to other individuals to make money. We, at Hosting Mexico, provide charge-free billing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated package plan of ours, which enables you to launch your very own personal hosting corporation and earn revenue very fast as the hosting business is constantly growing.
