What are Dedicated Servers?

Informational web portals, social networks and video sharing websites are very famous and highly visited web sites that demand plenty of resources to perform. The more visitors a web site is having simultaneously, the more resources will be needed to manage all the requests from the customers' web browsers and to process them. Therefore a dedicated server would be the optimal web hosting platform for such pages.

Purchasing a dedicated server signifies that you have a whole hosting server for your needs. As opposed to the hosting services or the virtual private servers environment where you share a server with a given number of other users, with a dedicated server you can make use of all the system resources for your websites' needs.

Dedicated Server Hardware Equipment

There are different hosting server architectures that you can purchase. They vary in terms of the hardware specs they provide - microprocessors, RAM quotas, hard disks, network cards, but they may also involve a monthly traffic limit. For a highly visited web page, or if you want to host several web sites on one single server, you may consider a more advanced configuration.

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

At Gower Power Solutions we offer an assortment of architectures to fulfill the demands of every client - from a low-end hosting server for one single site to an extremely avant-garde architecture that can handle highly visited web sites and 1000's of viewers at any time. The CPU and server storage space quotas and the database connections can be restricted solely by the server hardware itself.

Dedicated Server Hosting - Advantages and web hosting CPs

One great advantage of the dedicated server hosting over a shared hosting account is that you are given root-level access, so you can install any software program that you wish. Certain e-commerce shopping cart software applications, for instance, necessitate additional software that cannot be installed on a shared web server as it would affect all the clients on it. With a dedicated server, you have full freedom to install anything. You can manage the hosting server either by availing of the SSH network protocol, or via a CP tool. Here, you have a choice again. You can avail of a website hosting Control Panel provided by the web hosting corporation, or you can install your own one. Some famous website hosting CP user interfaces are Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin and H-Sphere. Most website hosting CP GUIs are licence-free (Hepsia), while others (cPanel) demand a monthly license fee to utilize them.

Transform Your Dedicated Server Into a Cash Machine

Along with the possibility to host your very own domain name, a dedicated server gives you the chance to set up your own personal website hosting firm and to offer web hosting services to other people. Lots of web hosting CP GUIs include a hosting reseller administration software supplement, so if you have an invoicing transaction & technical support solution such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, you can establish your hosting business, offering an array of web hosting packages for your future customers. You can also offer technical support to your customers directly, and, since you have root-level access, you can install software programs on demand, so your customers will be gratified with the service they obtain.

Managed Dedicated Server Hosting Services

We also offer an additional paid administration service. Our administrators will aid you with any issue that you may encounter with your dedicated server hosting - an OS update, a script installation, a troubleshooting procedure, or any other complication that you may experience.

A dedicated server - the Top web hosting Solution

A dedicated server is the ultimate hosting service if you are looking for an advanced and steady website hosting service without worrying about reaching any limitations. Whether you will host your own personal web portals, or you are a web site designer with a lot of customers and demand web content space for your work, or you desire to gain some extra money by selling the server hosting space to others, a dedicated server will give you the liberty that no other website hosting environment can.
