Description of Dedicated Hosting Plans

Free and paid shared packages are among the most popular hosting solutions on the market.

A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting company, or by the client, based on the given dedicated hosting package. In either case, the side handling the dedicated machine has access to a software platform to restart it at any moment. Administration is carried out through a hosting CP interface that allows you to check the processes running on the dedicated server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are different web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Given hosting companies provide dedicated hosting using one specific OS, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows server, for instance, and will not function on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, examine what the hosting supplier provides and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server includes all the software needed in order to run a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you get the dedicated web server, you can upload your web files and bring the website online. The majority of hosts offer full root access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and update any settings. Particular script-based software platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Lots of shopping cart software scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and being granted full server root access to the dedicated hosting server is vital for establishing a web store. Other providers do not offer complete root-level access, but help the customer install the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as compared to the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes full server root access.
