What Exactly are Dedicated Servers?

Corporate pages, social networks and video sharing sites are very famous and highly visited websites that require plenty of system resources to function. The more viewers a site is having at the same time, the more system resources will be demanded to handle all the requests from the customers' browsers and to process them. For that reason a dedicated server would be the optimal website hosting platform for such portals.

With a Dedicated Server - All of the Resources are Yours

Purchasing a dedicated server denotes that you get a whole server at your disposal. In contrast with the hosting services or the virtual private servers environment where you share a web server with a certain number of other customers, with a dedicated server you can avail of all the system resources for your web pages' needs.

Dedicated Server Hardware Equipment

There are many web server configurations that you can purchase. They contrast in relation to the hardware specs they have - microprocessors, RAM quotas, hard disks, network cards, but they may also have a monthly traffic restriction. For a highly visited website, or if you wish to host multiple web pages on one single web hosting server, you may think of a more powerful architecture.

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

At GreatHosts.biz we offer an array of architectures to meet the demands of every client - from a low-end web hosting server for one website to an extremely avant-garde configuration that can handle highly visited web sites and thousands of visitors at any particular moment. The CPU and data storage quotas and the database connections can be confined solely by the web server hardware itself.

Dedicated Web Hosting - Benefits and Control Panels

One major advantage of the dedicated web hosting over a shared hosting plan is that you are granted complete root-level access, so you can install any software platform that you desire. Some e-commerce shopping cart scripts, for instance, require extra software that cannot be installed on a shared hosting server as it would influence all the customers on it. With a dedicated server, you have full independence to install anything. You can manage the dedicated server either by using the Secure Shell protocol, or via a hosting CP interface. Here, you have a choice again. You can use a hosting CP furnished by the web hosting provider, or you can activate your own one. Some well-known website hosting CP GUIs are Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and H-Sphere. Most web hosting CP tools are licence-free (Hepsia), while others (cPanel) request a monthly license tax to use them.

Turn Your Dedicated Server Into a Cash Machine

Along with the opportunity to host your very own domain name, a dedicated server gives you the opportunity to start your own personal website hosting corporation and to offer hosting accounts to other people. Numerous website hosting Control Panel tools come with a hosting reseller admin software counterpart, so if you get an invoicing transaction & support system such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, you can set up your hosting business, setting up a variety of web hosting packages for your prospective clients. You can also provide technical support to your clients directly, and, since you have full root-level access, you can install software programs on demand, so your customers will be delighted with the service they receive.

Managed Dedicated Web Hosting Solutions

We also offer an extra paid admin solution. Our sysadmins will support you with any complication that you may encounter with your dedicated web hosting - an OS update, a script installation, a troubleshooting procedure, or any other problem that you may experience.

A dedicated server - the Extreme web hosting Service

A dedicated server is the top website hosting service if you seek a powerful and solid web hosting service without hassling about exceeding any quotas. Whether you will host your own personal websites, or you are a web designer with multiple clients and require server storage space for your work, or you want to gain some decent cash by selling the web hosting server storage space to others, a dedicated server will offer you the power that no other website hosting package can.
