Dedicated Packages Clarified
Free and paid shared plans are one of the most widespread hosting products on the marketplace. They are good for small sites that do not need a lot of resources and do not draw that many visitors, but for high resource-consuming web pages with many thousands of visitors, a more advanced platform is necessary. If you require a solid, avant-garde hosting platform that can tackle even 1 000 000's of daily hits, a dedicated package is your best alternative.
Tackle the High Load Caused by Your Sites with a Dedicated Server
With the dedicated server web hosting solution, you lease an entire hosting server whose resources will be utilized only by your websites. Just as any computer, each dedicated server has one or more central processing units running at a specific speed, some amount of RAM memory, one or more hard disk drives, and so on. A dedicated web server is indeed a computer with a hardware configuration meant to cope with heavy load and specific software installed on it, like web server software, PHP and MySQL software, etc., which allows the web sites stored on it to be available on the World Wide Web.

A dedicated server can be managed either by the host, or by the customer, based on the given dedicated package package. In either situation, the party handling the physical machine has access to a software platform to restart it at any particular moment. Administration is done through a web hosting CP interface that allows you to check the services running on the web hosting server.
Operating Systems for Dedicated Packages
There are various web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, a number of Linux distributions, etc. Some web hosting providers provide dedicated packages utilizing one specific Operating System, whereas others offer clients a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET web sites request a Windows server, for example, and will not operate on another Operating System, while PHP and HTML based sites utilizing MySQL databases will run on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated server, examine what the web hosting vendor offers and what the needs of your site are.
Software Apps for Dedicated Packages
By default, each dedicated server includes all the software required in order to administer a site - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, etc.), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so the moment you get the dedicated machine, you can upload your website files and get the web site online. Most hosts grant full root privileges, i.e. you can install any software apps on the dedicated server and update any settings. Certain script-based software platforms require server-side applications that should be pre-activated in order for them to operate. Various e-commerce scripts, for instance, have such a precondition, and being provided with root-level access to the dedicated server is decisive for kicking off an online shop. Other providers do not grant full server root access, but help the customer install the needed software platforms - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as compared with the unmanaged web hosting solution, which includes complete server root access.
