Free and paid shared plans are among the most widely used hosting solutions on the marketplace. They are great for small-sized web portals that do not need lots of resources and do not attract that many web site visitors, but for heavy resource-requiring web portals with many 1000's of website visitors, a more powerful platform is necessary. If you want a stable, top-notch hosting solution that can tackle even millions of daily hits, a dedicated package is your finest choice.

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

With the dedicated solution, you lease an entire web server whose resources will be utilized only by your web sites. Just like any computer, each dedicated server has one or more processors running at a given speed, a given amount of RAM, one or more hard disks, etc. A dedicated web server is actually a computer with a hardware configuration meant to handle heavy load and certain software activated on it, like a web server, PHP and MySQL software platforms, etc., which permits the websites stored on it to be available on the web.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

A dedicated server can be managed either by the web hosting company, or by the customer, depending on the specific dedicated package plan. In either case, the party managing the dedicated server has access to a software tool to restart it at any particular time. Administration is carried out through a web hosting CP graphical interface that allows you to keep track of the tasks running on the web server.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Packages

There are different web hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, and so on. Particular web hosting firms provide dedicated packages using one specific Operating System, whereas others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows server, for example, and will not function on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML driven websites using MySQL databases will operate on any OS. Before leasing a dedicated server, examine what the web hosting provider provides and what the requirements of your web site are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Packages

By default, each dedicated server comes with all the software needed to run a website - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the hosting server, you can upload your web site files and take the website online. The majority of web hosting service providers offer full server root access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated server and alter any settings. Specific script-powered software platforms require server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to run. Many shopping cart scripts, for example, include such a precondition, and being bestowed with complete server root access to the dedicated server is key for running an online shop. Other hosting suppliers do not grant root access, but help the customer activate the needed software apps - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes complete root-level access.

Dedicated Package by 'Malta Hosting'

The content on the dedicated server can be handled either through a Secure Shell (SSH) terminal or through a CP GUI such as cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia, and so on. There are 10's of web hosting CP user interfaces out there, and usually hosting vendors offer a few of them, and with complete root-level access at hand, the customer can install any of them. All files, databases, email aliases, access logs and script installations are administered effortlessly through a graphical interface in a web browser, so no advanced knowledge is needed. Specific hosting CPs also include a reseller back office tool, so if you have a dedicated server, you can not only host your website files, but also sell shared website hosting packages to other people to make profit. We, at Malta Hosting, provide free-of-charge invoicing software and a domain reseller account with each dedicated package plan of ours, which allows you to found your own personal web hosting company and generate cash in no time because the web hosting market niche is incessantly increasing.
