Free and paid shared plans are among the most famous hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are suitable for small-sized online portals that do not need a lot of system resources and do not get that many viewers, but for resource-demanding web sites with many 1000's of viewers, a more powerful solution is needed. If you would like to have a dependable, hi-end shared hosting solution that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday hits, a dedicated server is your best alternative.

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

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you rent an entire hosting server whose resources will be used only by your sites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more microprocessors operating at a certain speed, a given amount of memory, one or more disk drives, etc. A dedicated server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration aimed to cope with high load and given software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the sites accommodated on it to be reachable online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be administered either by the web hosting vendor, or by the customer, on the basis of the given dedicated server plan. In either case, the party managing the web server has access to a software tool to restart it at any given moment. Management is carried out through a CP interface that enables you to keep an eye on the services running on the machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are various hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, and so on. Specific web hosting corporations offer dedicated servers using one particular Operating System, whereas others give clients an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not function on another Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML based websites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, examine what the web hosting service provider provides and what the necessities of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software apps needed to manage a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web site files and get the website online. The majority of hosting providers grant complete root-level access, in other words you can install any software on the dedicated server and update any settings. Certain script-based platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to function. Many shopping cart scripts, for example, include such a requirement, and being supplied with full server root access to the dedicated server is critical for establishing an online storefront. Other hosting suppliers do not offer full root privileges, but help the client install the necessary software apps - this is the so-called managed hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with root access.

Dedicated Server by 'CIS Hosting'

The content on the dedicated server can be administered either via a Secure Shell (SSH) client or via a Control Panel GUI such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of web hosting Control Panel interfaces out there, and normally hosting service providers provide a few of them, and with complete root-level access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All website files, databases, mail aliases, access logs and script installations are handled easily via a graphical user interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Certain Control Panels also have a reseller backend dashboard, so if you buy a dedicated server, you can not only host your files, but also offer shared website hosting plans to other persons to make cash. We, at CIS Hosting, provide charge-free billing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated server plan of ours, which permits you to build your own web hosting corporation and generate profit very quickly as the hosting market niche is incessantly expanding.
