What are dedicated servers?
Dedicated servers, as their name suggests, are dedicated solely to a single customer.
This provides increased bandwidth to a web hosting service. The entire dedicated
server is thus leased to a single client without any shared hosting. This offers
great flexibility to our clients. They can choose the server’s operating system
and the hardware. Full administrative control is provided to the client through
dedicated servers. Dedicated servers often prove to be a highly popular hosting
solution. They can also be managed servers. Managed servers that are dedicated to
a single client may offer greater flexibility. Many businesses prefer to buy dedicated
servers to support high bandwidth applications. Businesses such as high volume e-commerce
providers and financial services providers prefer to use dedicated servers.
Dedicated servers are backed up by a complete range of support
activities that provide for smooth running of the services. Support for any of the
operating systems usually depends on the level of management offered with a particular
dedicated server plan. Operating system contributions and support may include updates
to the core system in order to acquire the latest patches, security upgrades, and
system-wide vulnerability resolutions. Updates to core operating systems include
kernel upgrades, service packs, application updates, and security patches that keep
server secure and safe. Operating system updates and support relieves the burden
of server management from the dedicated server owner.
Providers of dedicated servers offer a range of value added services and server
options. Accessibility, price and employee familiarity often determine which operating
systems are offered on dedicated servers from most vendors. Variations of the Linux
open source operating systems are often included at no extra charge to the customer.
However, Microsoft requires additional license fees on all their products, thus
increasing the monthly cost of a dedicated server running a Windows operating system.
Commercial operating systems include Microsoft Windows Server, provided through
a special program called Microsoft SPLA. Red Hat Enterprise is a particular commercial
version of Linux often offered to hosting providers on a monthly fee basis. The
monthly fee provides updates through the Red Hat Network. Other operating systems
may be available available from the open source community at no charge. These can
include Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora Core, Debian, and others.
