Dedicated Server Hosting
Dedicated server hosting is a type of internet hosting where a client leases a server from a web hosting provider. This server is not shared with any other customers. The client who leases the server has complete control over the server even though the server is located at the hosting provider’s data center. Besides physical storage space, the hosting company provides the client’s server with electricity, internet and often support for the operating system and applications.
Dedicated servers often come with variations of the Linux open-source operating system, but may also come with Microsoft for an extra cost due to license fees. Using a dedicated server hosting plan instead of housing the server themselves relieves clients of operating system updates and supports usually taken care of by the dedicated server hosting provider.
Server management is different depending on the hosting provider so it is important to see what services a particular dedicated hosting company provides. Server management may include operating system updates, application updates, application monitoring, intrusion detection, server monitoring, SNMP hardware monitoring, technical support, firewall services, anti-virus updates, security audits, disaster recovery, DNS hosting, load balancing, database administration, performance tuning, DDOS protection and mitigation, backups and restoration, software installation and configuration, user management and programming consultation.
