Free and paid shared plans are among the most popular hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are good for small-size websites that do not necessitate plenty of resources and do not get that many website visitors, but for high resource-absorbing sites with many 1000's of visitors, a more advanced solution is required. If you would like to have a powerful, hi-end shared hosting solution that can cope with even 1 000 000's of everyday visits, a dedicated server is your most suitable choice.

Tackle the Load Caused by Your Websites with a Dedicated Server

With the dedicated hosting service, you lease an entire web server whose system resources will be used only by your web sites. Just as any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors running at a certain speed, a particular amount of memory, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated server is in fact a computer with hardware intended to tackle heavy load and given software installed on it, such as a web server, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which permits the sites stored on it to be available on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Solutions

A dedicated server can be administered either by the host, or by the customer, depending on the specific dedicated server package. In either situation, the side managing the dedicated machine has access to a software tool to restart it at any moment. Administration is done via a CP tool that enables you to supervise the services running on the web hosting server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Servers

There are different hosting server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, an array of Linux distributions, etc. Particular web hosting firms provide dedicated servers using one specific OS, while others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET websites demand a Windows web server, for instance, and will not work on a different OS, whereas PHP and HTML based web sites utilizing MySQL databases will work on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, examine what the hosting supplier offers and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Servers

By default, each dedicated server includes all the software platforms required in order to run a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so as soon as you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web site files and get the web site online. Most web hosts grant full server root access, i.e. you can activate any software applications on the dedicated server and modify any settings. Specific script-powered platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to function. Lots of e-commerce scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and gaining root access to the dedicated server is critical for setting up an online shop. Other web hosting distributors do not provide root-level access, but help the customer activate the necessary software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting solution, which offers full root privileges.

Dedicated Server by 'CIS Hosting'

The files on the dedicated server can be administered either through a Secure Shell (SSH) connection or via a Control Panel user interface like cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, etc. There are tens of web hosting Control Panel interfaces out there, and normally web hosting service providers offer several of them, and with full server root access at hand, the customer can install any of them. All web files, databases, e-mailboxes, access logs and script installations are managed effortlessly through a graphical user interface in a browser, so no advanced knowledge is necessary. Some web hosting CPs also comprise a reseller back office tool, so if you obtain a dedicated server, you can not simply host your files, but also offer shared website hosting packages to other users to earn money. We, at CIS Hosting, offer free-of-cost billing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated server package of ours, which enables you to launch your very own web hosting corporation and gain money very fast because the web hosting business niche is incessantly proliferating.
