Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widely used website hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are great for small online portals that do not require plenty of resources and do not have that many website visitors, but for content-heavy websites with many thousands of website visitors, a more powerful solution is required. If you desire a robust, first-rate web hosting solution that can handle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated hosting is your most appropriate choice.

Tackle the High Load Created by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web server hosting service, you rent a whole physical server whose resources will be utilized only by your web sites. Just like any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processing units operating at a specific speed, a specific amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disks, and so on. A dedicated web hosting server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration meant to handle intense load and certain software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the websites stored on it to be accessible on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting company, or by the client, on the basis of the specific dedicated hosting plan. In either case, the party administering the physical machine has access to a software tool to reboot it at any given moment. Management is done through a hosting Control Panel GUI that enables you to keep track of the services running on the hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Some hosting distributors provide dedicated hosting running one specific Operating System, whereas others give customers an option. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows server, for example, and will not operate on a different Operating System, whereas PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will run on any OS. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, check what the web hosting service provider offers and what the requirements of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software apps required to manage a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated web hosting server, you can upload your website files and take the web site online. Most hosting firms give root privileges, i.e. you can install any software on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Given script-driven platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. Many shopping cart scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and receiving full server root access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for managing a web storefront. Other hosting firms do not offer complete root-level access, but help the customer activate the needed software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as compared with the unmanaged hosting service, which comes with complete root access.

Dedicated Hosting by 'SigmaInfinity'

The web site files on the dedicated hosting server can be managed either via a Secure Shell (SSH) terminal or through a Control Panel graphical user interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of web hosting Control Panel user interfaces in existence, and typically hosting vendors provide a couple of them, and with complete root access at hand, the client can install any of them. All website files, databases, email accounts, access logs and script installations are administered easily through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is required. Particular CPs also have a reseller back office panel, so if you pick a dedicated hosting server, you can not simply host your web files, but also sell shared web hosting plans to different customers to make profit. We, at SigmaInfinity, provide free-of-charge invoicing software and a domain reseller account with every dedicated hosting package of ours, which enables you to begin your very own personal hosting corporation and earn profit very quickly since the hosting business niche is perpetually proliferating.
