Dedicated web servers – features you should be acquainted with

Corporate web portals, social networks and video sharing web portals are very popular and highly visited sites that require plenty of resources to operate. The more visitors a site accommodates at the same time, the more system resources will be needed to tackle all the requests from the users' browsers and to fulfill them. Hence a dedicated server would be the optimal site hosting platform for such web portals.

With a Dedicated Hosting Server - All of the Resources are for You

Purchasing a indicates that you have an entire web server for your needs. As opposed to the hosting services or the VPS platform where you share a physical server with a certain number of other customers, with a dedicated server you can use all the system resources for your online portals' requirements.

Dedicated Web Server Hardware Equipment

There are diverse server configurations that you can get. They vary in terms of the hardware specs they provide - processors, RAM quantities, hard disks, network cards, but they may also include a monthly web traffic limitation. For a highly visited web page, or if you want to host many web portals on one web server, you may think of a more powerful configuration.

Running Dedicated? How Much? That's the Point.

Traditionally, the web hosting firms offer various configurations to meet the demands of their clients - from a small-scale server for a single web page to a very advanced configuration that can handle very famous web sites and thousands of visitors at any given moment. The central processing unit and disk space quotas and the database connections can be restricted only by the web hosting server hardware itself.

Dedicated Web Server Hosting - Advantages and Web Page Hosting Control Panels

Certain electronic commerce shopping cart scripts, for example, demand extra software that cannot be installed on a shared hosting server as it would affect all the users on it. With a dedicated server, you have full autonomy to install anything. You can administer the hosting server either by availing of the SSH network protocol, or through a web space hosting CP tool. Here, you have an alternative again. You can make use of a web site hosting Control Panel supplied by the webspace hosting firm, or you can utilize your own. Some famous web hosting CP tools are cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and H-Sphere. Some companies such as Duty Free Hosting, for example, have their own hosting Control Panel, which is invented based on customer recommendations and provides multi-domain hosting support. Some webspace hosting CP tools are license-free (Hepsia), while others (cPanel) request a monthly licence fee to utilize them.

Convert Your Dedicated Web Server Into a Money Making Machine

Along with the option to host your very own domain name, a dedicated hosting server gives you the possibility to run your own hosting corporation and to offer web hosting accounts to other individuals. Lots of web site hosting Control Panel GUIs have a hosting reseller admin software counterpart, so if you get an invoicing transaction & support platform like as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, you can run your web hosting business, setting up a variety of web hosting plans for your future customers. You can also offer technical support to your clients directly, and, since you have full server root privileges, you can install software on demand, so your customers will be delighted with the service they get.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Services

Certain hosting corporations also offer an additional paid admin service, whereby the company's admins will help you with any predicament that you may experience with your dedicated web hosting server - an OS update, a script installation, a troubleshooting procedure, or any other problem that you may run into.

A Dedicated Web Server - the Most Radical Webspace Hosting Solution
