Definition of Dedicated Hosting

Free and paid shared plans are one of the most popular hosting solutions on the market. They are applicable for small-scale websites that do not request plenty of resources and do not draw that many viewers, but for resource-swallowing online portals with many 1000's of website visitors, a more advanced solution is necessary. If you want an advanced, first-class shared hosting platform that can handle even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated hosting is your best option.

Tackle the Heavy Load Generated by Your Sites with a Dedicated Hosting Server

With the dedicated web hosting solution, you lease an entire web hosting server whose resources will be utilized only by your web sites. Just as any PC, each dedicated hosting server has one or more processing units running at a specific speed, a particular amount of RAM, one or more hard drives, etc. A web hosting server is in fact a computer with a hardware configuration meant to tackle high load and certain software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software, and so on, which allows the web sites stored on it to be available online.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated hosting server can be managed either by the web hosting vendor, or by the customer, on the basis of the concrete dedicated hosting package. In either situation, the side handling the physical machine has access to a software platform to restart it at any particular time. Administration is done via a web hosting CP graphical interface that enables you to check the services running on the physical server.

OSs for Dedicated Hosting

There are various hosting server Operating Systems such as Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Particular hosts offer dedicated hosting running one specific Operating System, whereas others offer clients an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites require a Windows web server, for example, and will not perform on a different Operating System, while PHP and HTML based web sites using MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated hosting server, check what the hosting supplier offers and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server offers all the software applications needed to administer a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web files and bring the web site online. The majority of web hosting firms provide root-level access, i.e. you can install any software platforms on the dedicated hosting server and revise any settings. Specific script-powered software platforms need server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to run. Lots of shopping cart scripts, for instance, have such a requirement, and being granted root access to the dedicated hosting server is vital for managing a web storefront. Other hosting corporations do not offer complete root access, but help the customer activate the necessary software platforms - this is the so-called managed hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged web hosting solution, which comes with complete root access.

Dedicated Hosting by 'JB1 Hosting'

The textual, visual and aural content on the dedicated hosting server can be managed either through a Secure Shell (SSH) client or via a hosting CP user interface such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of CP graphical interfaces out there, and typically providers offer a couple of them, and with complete root access at hand, the customer can activate any of them. All files, databases, e-mail box accounts, access logs and script installations are administered easily via a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Specific web hosting Control Panels also include a reseller backend console, so if you obtain a dedicated hosting server, you can not only host your files, but also offer shared web hosting plans to different customers to make money. We, at JB1 Hosting, provide free-of-charge billing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated hosting plan of ours, which enables you to build your own personal hosting corporation and earn revenue in no time since the web hosting market niche is incessantly evolving.
