Free and paid shared packages are one of the most widely used hosting products on the market. They are great for small-size web sites that do not require lots of resources and do not attract that many visitors, but for high resource-absorbing sites with many 1000's of visitors, a more powerful platform is needed. If you need a rock solid, no-holds-barred hosting platform that can cope with even millions of everyday hits, a dedicated package is your most suitable alternative.

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

With the dedicated server hosting solution, you rent an entire server whose system resources will be used only by your web sites. Just as any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units functioning at a particular speed, a particular amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration designed to cope with heavy load and some software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which allows the sites hosted on it to be accessible on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be administered either by the hosting corporation, or by the client, depending on the given dedicated package package. In either case, the side managing the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any particular moment. Administration is done via a web hosting Control Panel GUI that allows you to keep an eye on the tasks running on the dedicated web hosting server.

OSs for Dedicated Packages

There are different hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, a variety of Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting suppliers offer dedicated packages utilizing one specific OS, while others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not operate on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Prior to leasing a dedicated server, discover what the hosting corporation provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software applications needed to manage a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so the moment you obtain the hosting server, you can upload your web files and get the site online. Most hosting vendors give root-level access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated server and update any settings. Certain script-based platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. A lot of e-commerce scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and being supplied with root-level access to the dedicated server is vital for making a web shop. Other web hosting suppliers do not grant full server root access, but help the client activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which offers complete root-level access.

Dedicated Package by 'Host It Better'

The web content on the dedicated server can be managed either through a Secure Shell (SSH) terminal or via a hosting Control Panel interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are 10's of web hosting Control Panel user interfaces available, and normally hosting distributors provide a few of them, and with full root-level access at hand, the client can activate any of them. All web files, databases, mailbox accounts, access logs and program installations are handled easily through a GUI in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Particular CPs also have a reseller backend tool, so if you settle on a dedicated server, you can not simply host your files, but also sell shared website hosting packages to other clients to gain revenue. We, at Host It Better, provide free billing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated package plan of ours, which allows you to set up your very own personal hosting firm and make revenue very quickly since the hosting market is incessantly enlarging.
