What are Dedicated Servers?

Informational web portals, social networks and video sharing web pages are very popular and heavy websites that need a lot of resources to run. The more visitors a web site is having concurrently, the more system resources will be required to handle all the requests from the customers' browsers and to process them. Therefore a dedicated server would be the optimum website hosting platform for such portals.

Buying a dedicated server suggests that you get a whole web hosting server at your disposal. Unlike the hosting services or the virtual private servers environment where you share a physical machine with a certain number of other customers, with a dedicated server you can avail of all the system resources for your online portals' needs.

Dedicated Server Hardware Equipment

There are diverse server configurations that you can buy. They vary in terms of the hardware features they include - microprocessors, RAM amounts, hard disk drives, network interface cards, but they may also include a monthly traffic limitation. For a highly visited web site, or if you would like to host a lot of web sites on a single web hosting server, you may consider a more advanced configuration.

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

At xDealHost we offer an assortment of architectures to satisfy the demands of every client - from a small hosting server for one website to a very powerful architecture that can handle highly visited web sites and thousands of guests at any time. The central processing unit and storage space quotas and the database connections can be confined solely by the server hardware itself.

Dedicated Hosting - Benefits and web hosting CPs

One major advantage of the dedicated hosting over a shared hosting package is that you are endowed with root privileges, so you can install any software application that you would like. Some e-commerce shopping cart scripts, for example, require additional software that cannot be installed on a shared hosting server as it would affect all the customers on it. With a dedicated server, you have full autonomy to install anything. You can manage the web server either by using the Secure Shell protocol, or via a CP user interface. Here, you have a choice again. You can avail of a hosting CP provided by the website hosting vendor, or you can utilize your own one. Some widely used web hosting CP interfaces are Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and H-Sphere. Most web hosting Control Panel interfaces are license-free (Hepsia), while others (cPanel) demand a monthly license fee to utilize them.

Convert Your Dedicated Server Into a Money Making Machine

Along with the opportunity to host your very own domain name, a dedicated server gives you the chance to set up your own web hosting firm and to sell web hosting solutions to other individuals. A lot of hosting Control Panel interfaces contain a hosting reseller administration software counterpart, so if you get an invoicing & technical support platform such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, you can begin your hosting business, creating an array of website hosting plans for your prospective customers. You can also provide technical support to your customers directly, and, since you have full server root access, you can install software programs on demand, so your customers will be delighted with the service they receive.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

We also offer an extra paid administration service. Our system administrators will help you with any complication that you may encounter with your dedicated hosting - an OS update, a script activation, a troubleshooting operation, or any other predicament that you may stumble upon.

A dedicated server - the Extreme Web Hosting Solution

A dedicated server is the paramount web hosting environment if you are looking for a powerful and dependable web hosting service without hassling about exceeding any usage quotas. Whether you will host your own web sites, or you are a web designer with multiple clients and require web content space for your work, or you want to receive some good money by offering the server web hosting space to others, a dedicated server will offer you the autonomy that no other website hosting solution can.
