A dedicated hosting server can be administered either by the hosting provider, or by the client, on the basis of the given dedicated hosting package. In either case, the party administering the dedicated web hosting server has access to a software platform to restart it at any given time. Administration is carried out via a web hosting Control Panel interface that allows you to supervise the processes running on the physical machine.

Operating Systems for Dedicated Hosting

There are different hosting server Operating Systems like Windows, FreeBSD, various Linux distributions, etc. Given web hosting providers provide dedicated hosting utilizing one specific OS, whereas others give customers a choice. MSSQL databases and .NET websites necessitate a Windows server, for example, and will not operate on a different OS, while PHP and HTML driven web sites utilizing MySQL databases will perform on any Operating System. Before renting a dedicated hosting server, check what the web hosting corporation provides and what the needs of your website are.

Software Applications for Dedicated Hosting

By default, each dedicated hosting server comes with all the software platforms needed in order to manage a web site - a web server, database software (MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and so on), PHP software, an FTP server and so on, so once you obtain the web server, you can upload your website files and get the website online. The majority of web hosting providers give complete server root access, in other words you can activate any software applications on the dedicated hosting server and change any settings. Specific script-based platforms require server-side libraries that should be pre-installed in order for them to perform. Different e-commerce software scripts, for instance, impose such a precondition, and gaining full server root access to the dedicated hosting server is crucial for kicking off an online store. Other hosting service providers do not grant complete server root access, but help the customer activate the necessary software - this is the so-called managed web hosting solution, as distinguished from the unmanaged hosting solution, which includes complete root-level access.
