What Precisely are Dedicated Servers?

Corporate websites, social networks and video sharing web sites are very popular and busy sites that require plenty of system resources to run. The more viewers a web page is having concurrently, the more resources will be demanded to manage all the requests from the customers' web browsers and to fulfill them. This is why a dedicated server would be the optimum website hosting environment for such web pages.

Purchasing a dedicated server denotes that you receive an entire web server for your needs. In contrast with the hosting services or the virtual private servers solution where you share a hosting server with a given number of other users, with a dedicated server you can avail of all the system resources for your online portals' requirements.

Dedicated Server Hardware Equipment

There are varied web hosting server architectures that you can get. They vary in relation to the hardware specs they have - processors, RAM quotas, hard drives, network cards, but they may also involve a monthly traffic limitation. For a very popular web site, or if you would like to host a number of web sites on one single hosting server, you may think of a more advanced configuration.

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

At Web Lakay we supply an array of configurations to answer the requirements of every client - from a low-end web hosting server for one single web page to an extremely avant-garde architecture that can manage highly visited sites and 1000's of guests at any particular moment. The CPU and server storage space quotas and the database connections can be confined solely by the hosting server hardware itself.

Dedicated Hosting - Advantages and web hosting CPs

One notable advantage of the dedicated hosting over a shared hosting package is that you acquire full server root access, so you can install any software platform that you would like. Certain electronic commerce shopping cart software applications, for instance, demand additional software that cannot be installed on a shared web hosting server as it would affect all the clients on it. With a dedicated server, you have complete autonomy to install anything. You can administer the dedicated server either by availing of the SSH network protocol, or via a website hosting Control Panel GUI. Here, you have an option again. You can use a website hosting CP furnished by the hosting company, 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 tools are license-free (Hepsia), while others (cPanel) request a monthly licence fee to utilize them.

Transform Your Dedicated Server Into a Cash Generating Machine

Along with the possibility to host your own domain name, a dedicated server gives you the opportunity to launch your own personal website hosting enterprise and to offer website hosting packages to other persons. Plenty of website hosting CP GUIs offer a hosting reseller admin software supplement, so if you have a billing & support solution such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, you can start your hosting business, setting up an assortment of website hosting plans for your future customers. You can also offer 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 contented with the service they obtain.

Managed Dedicated Hosting Services

We also offer an additional paid admin service. Our administrators will help you with any problem that you may experience with your dedicated hosting - an OS update, a script activation, a troubleshooting procedure, or any other complication that you may come across.

A dedicated server - the Extreme Website Hosting Solution

A dedicated server is the most radical web hosting platform if you seek an advanced and stable website hosting service without hassling about reaching any quota limits. Whether you will host your own personal websites, or you are a web designer with many clients and require disk space for your work, or you wish to earn some decent cash by offering the server storage space to others, a dedicated server will give you the freedom that no other website hosting service can.
