What Exactly is Dedicated Hosting?


Informational sites, social networks and video sharing web pages are very famous and highly visited sites that request a lot of system resources to perform. The more visitors a web portal is having concurrently, the more system resources will be required to manage all the requests from the customers' browsers and to process them. Therefore a dedicated server would be the optimal web hosting environment for such portals.

With a Dedicated Server - All of the System Resources are for You

Purchasing a dedicated server denotes that you have an entire physical server for your needs. As opposed to the hosting services or the VPS solution where you share a physical server with a certain number of other customers, with a dedicated server you can utilize all the resources for your sites' needs.

Dedicated Server Hardware Equipment

There are diverse hosting server configurations that you can buy. They contrast in terms of the hardware specs they have - processors, RAM amounts, hard drives, network cards, but they may also involve a monthly traffic limit. For a highly visited web page, or if you desire to host lots of websites on one web server, you may think of a more powerful configuration.

Going Dedicated? How Much? That's the Question.

At YourPowerHosting we offer a variety of architectures to fulfill the requirements of every client - from a small server for one site to a very avant-garde configuration that can manage highly visited web pages and thousands of viewers at any particular moment. The CPU and web space quotas and the database connections can be limited only by the hosting server hardware itself.

Dedicated Hosting - Advantages and website hosting Control Panels

One notable advantage of the dedicated hosting over a hosting account is that you acquire complete server root access, so you can install any software application that you desire. Some e-commerce shopping cart scripts, for example, require additional software that cannot be installed on a shared web hosting server as it would affect all the users on it. With a dedicated server, you have complete independence to install anything. You can manage the dedicated server either by availing of the Secure Shell protocol, or through a Control Panel tool. Here, you have a choice again. You can avail of a website hosting CP provided by the web hosting corporation, or you can utilize your own one. Some widely used web hosting Control Panel tools are Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and H-Sphere. Most web hosting CP interfaces are license-free (Hepsia), while others (cPanel) require a monthly licence fee to utilize them.

Turn Your Dedicated Server Into a Cash Machine

Along with the option to host your very own domain name, a dedicated server offers you the possibility to launch your very own website hosting enterprise and to offer web hosting packages to other people. Plenty of Control Panel GUIs contain a hosting reseller administration software counterpart, so if you get an invoicing transaction & support solution such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, you can start your web hosting business, offering an array of web hosting packages for your future customers. You can also provide support to your customers directly, and, since you have root-level access, you can install software applications on demand, so your clients will be satisfied with the service they obtain.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

We also provide an extra paid administration service. Our admins will assist you with any predicament that you may experience with your dedicated hosting - an Operating System update, a script installation, a troubleshooting procedure, or any other complication that you may run into.

A dedicated server - the Ultimate website hosting Platform

A dedicated server is the paramount web hosting service if you seek a powerful and steady website hosting service without worrying about exceeding any usage quotas. Whether you will host your own personal web portals, or you are a web designer with lots of clients and require web hosting server disk space for your work, or you want to collect some good money by selling the web hosting server storage space to others, a dedicated server will offer you the autonomy that no other website hosting environment can.
