A dedicated web server hosting involves the leasing of an entire server from a dedicated server host company.

A dedicated web server hosting involves the leasing of an entire server from a dedicated server host company. The hosting company owns, maintains, and backs up the server while providing all the security, power management, and other aspects of maintaining a data center. The site developer is responsible for all web server software issues.

The demand for dedicated hosting arises out of the expansion of the site with web developers often moving to more advanced technologies which require extensive use of system resources and increased bandwidth to serve the technology to a web browser. With this increased need for resources, having an entire server for your site is often the answer. A dedicated web server is also an option for reseller hosting businesses.

A dedicated server is the best solution for traffic-heavy businesses who lack the staff, resources, and security to build, install, and maintain an in-house solution. With a dedicated server, leasing saves on network administrator position for a company (Crowder & Crowder, 2001). A dedicated hosting account is usually cheaper overall than an in-house solution, and businesses can reap savings of up to 85% on a per month basis (TopHosts' Guide, 2001).

Financially, a dedicated server runs a few hundred dollars per month. Hosting companies often offer packages based on server configuration (space, processor speed, IP addresses, CPanel) and bandwidth allowances.

    You can also use SCP if you use Linux to transfer the file:<br />
    <br />
    cd /home/wherever/<br />
    <br />
    scp someimage.jpg [email protected]:/home/someuser/cpanel3-skel/

    If you're using SSH please CD to /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html<br />
    <br />
    You'll be able to create or modify your existing index.html

    Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I designed my index.html page, uploaded it to (the right folder) - but it doesn't show up?

Add Your Thoughts is a hosting directory, not a web host.
