What Actually are Dedicated Servers?

Informational pages, social networks and video sharing websites are very popular and heavy web portals that need a lot of system resources to perform. The more viewers a web site is having simultaneously, the more resources will be demanded to tackle all the requests from the users' web browsers and to execute them. This is the reason why a dedicated server would be the optimum website hosting environment for such pages.

Buying a dedicated server implies that you obtain a whole web server for your needs. In contrast with the hosting services or the virtual private servers solution where you share a hosting server with a specific number of other users, with a dedicated server you can avail of all the resources for your web sites' requirements.

Dedicated Server Hardware Equipment

There are many server architectures that you can get. They differ in terms of the hardware specifications they are offering - processors, RAM amounts, hard disks, network interface cards, but they may also contain a monthly bandwidth restriction. For a very famous site, or if you desire to host multiple web sites on a single server, you may think of a more powerful configuration.

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

At FastWeb2 - Web Solutions we supply an assortment of architectures to answer the demands of every customer - from a small-scale hosting server for a single website to an extremely powerful configuration that can cope with very heavy web pages and 1000's of visitors at any particular moment. The CPU and storage space quotas and the database connections can be confined solely by the web server hardware itself.

Dedicated Web Server Hosting - Advantages and Website Hosting CPs

One major advantage of the dedicated web server hosting over a shared hosting plan is that you have complete root-level access, so you can install any software that you desire. Certain electronic commerce shopping cart scripts, for example, demand additional software that cannot be installed on a shared hosting server as it would affect all the clients on it. With a dedicated server, you have complete autonomy to install anything. You can administer the hosting server either by using the Secure Shell network protocol, or via a website hosting CP tool. Here, you have an alternative again. You can avail of a web hosting Control Panel supplied by the web hosting distributor, or you can install your own one. Some popular website hosting Control Panel GUIs are Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and H-Sphere. Most website hosting Control Panel user interfaces are license-free (Hepsia), while others (cPanel) request a monthly licence tax to use them.

Convert Your Dedicated Server Into a Money Making Machine

Along with the possibility to host your very own domain name, a dedicated server gives you the chance to establish your very own web hosting company and to sell hosting plans to other people. Plenty of CP interfaces include a hosting reseller administration software counterpart, so if you have a billing & support system like as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, you can kickstart your web hosting business, offering an array of web hosting accounts for your prospective clients. You can also offer technical support to your clients directly, and, since you have full root-level access, you can install software applications on demand, so your clients will be delighted with the service they get.

Managed Dedicated Web Server Hosting Services

We also provide an additional paid admin solution. Our administrators will support you with any issue that you may encounter with your dedicated web server hosting - an Operating System update, a script installation, a troubleshooting procedure, or any other problem that you may come across.

A dedicated server - the Supreme website hosting Solution

A dedicated server is the paramount website hosting solution if you seek a powerful and dependable hosting service without worrying about reaching any quota limitations. Whether you will host your own personal portals, or you are a website designer with numerous customers and demand web content space for your work, or you wish to make some extra cash by reselling the server web hosting space to others, a dedicated server will give you the liberty that no other website hosting solution can.
