Description of Dedicated Web Hosting

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most extensively used hosting products on the marketplace. They are applicable for small-size web portals that do not demand plenty of resources and do not get that many viewers, but for resource-swallowing web portals with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful solution is required. If you desire a steady, top-drawer web hosting solution that can handle even millions of daily visits, a dedicated web hosting is your perfect option.

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

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire physical machine whose system resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just like any personal computer, each dedicated server has one or more processing units functioning at a particular speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated hosting server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration designed to tackle heavy load and certain software installed on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which permits the websites hosted on it to be available on the Internet.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting supplier, or by the client, on the basis of the specific dedicated web hosting plan. In either case, the party handling the physical machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any specific time. Administration is carried out via a Control Panel graphical user interface that enables you to keep track of the processes running on the dedicated server.

OSs for Dedicated Web Hosting

There are different web hosting server OSs like Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosting suppliers provide dedicated web hosting utilizing one specific Operating System, while others offer customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows web server, for instance, and will not run on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML driven web sites using MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, discover what the hosting firm offers and what the requirements of your site are.

Software Platforms for Dedicated Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated server offers all the software needed in order to administer a web site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you get the web hosting server, you can upload your website files and take the website online. Most hosting firms grant full root privileges, i.e. you can activate any software on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Given script-driven platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Many e-commerce software scripts, for instance, involve such a precondition, and getting complete root access to the dedicated server is decisive for building a web shop. Other hosting companies do not provide full server root privileges, but help the customer activate the required software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which offers complete server root access.

Dedicated Web Hosting by 'CIS Hosting'

The web files on the dedicated server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) console or through a Control Panel user interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of CP graphical user interfaces out there, and typically web hosting suppliers provide several of them, and with full root-level access at hand, the client can install any of them. All web site files, databases, electronic mail aliases, access logs and script installations are administered easily via a graphical user interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Certain web hosting CPs also have a reseller backend console, so if you settle on a dedicated server, you can not merely host your files, but also sell shared website hosting packages to different clients to earn profit. We, at CIS Hosting, offer free billing software and a domain reseller account with each and every dedicated web hosting package of ours, which allows you to constitute your very own web hosting company and gain money in no time since the web hosting market is constantly developing.
