A dedicated web hosting server can be administered either by the web hosting distributor, or by the client, on the basis of the concrete dedicated server web hosting package. In either situation, the party administering the dedicated hosting server has access to a software tool to restart it at any specific moment. Management is carried out via a hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that enables you to monitor the processes running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

There are different web server OSs such as Windows, FreeBSD, different Linux distributions, etc. Some web hosting service providers offer dedicated server web hosting using one particular OS, while others give customers an alternative. MSSQL databases and .NET sites request a Windows web server, for instance, and will not perform on another OS, whereas PHP and HTML based websites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any OS. Before renting a dedicated web hosting server, discover what the web hosting corporation offers and what the needs of your site are.

Software Apps for Dedicated Server Web Hosting

By default, each dedicated web hosting server includes all the software applications needed in order to administer a website - web server software, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, FTP server software and so on, so once you obtain the dedicated web server, you can upload your web files and bring the site online. The majority of hosting service providers offer root access, i.e. you can activate any software platforms on the dedicated web hosting server and update any settings. Given script-based platforms need server-side apps that should be pre-installed in order for them to work. A lot of e-commerce scripts, for example, impose such a requirement, and being offered root-level access to the dedicated web hosting server is vital for building a web storefront. Other web hosting distributors do not give root-level access, but help the customer install the required software applications - this is the so-called managed web hosting service, as differentiated from the unmanaged hosting service, which comes with complete root-level access.
