New website owners spend a good time in learning about web hosting in Pakistan, website designing and development. But they don’t have any idea about the hardware of web hosting. You have to be an expert in web hosting; otherwise you will not know the essential specification of web hosting server, infrastructure and data center. However, most technical experts also don’t have basic knowledge of web hosting hardware and its terms. Every web hosting company has different set of hardware specifications. In this post, we have presented basics of web hosting servers:
Why Web Hosting Server is Important?
There are different types of web hosting available in web hosting business. But regardless of the type, a physical server is needed to power them. How much portion is allocated to your website is the basic different between these types. The data of your website is stored on this server at a data center whether you choose reseller, VPS, shared or dedicated hosting. This can be located anywhere in the world. The web hosting company like Amcosoft Pvt Ltd would be responsible to manage the power, networking and security of your web hosting server. Our company has multiple data centers with hundreds of servers located at different locations. Web hosting servers are made up of similar components like the P.C but more powerful and efficient.
There are two important parts of the server you are getting for web hosting in Pakistan: hardware and software. Both of them are quite different from each other. The applications and data used to develop operating system and related functioning tools are known as the software of your server. On the other hand, hardware is referred to the physical parts of the server like circuits, motherboards etc. Most of the webs hosting servers have same hardware components unless you want a customized server for your website. But the software of the server always varies depending on your needs.
Following are the basic components every web hosting server has:
Hard Disk Drives
The moving part of the server is known as hard disk drive and it is used to store memory on long term basis. For your understanding, this is like the CD or DVD of your regular PC. But it has faster rates of spinning and an arm stretches across the bundle of disks. These disks magnetically save data and information. There is a direct link between the memory of the server and the HDD, the more HDD means your server has more room for saving programs, files and data.
Central Processing Unit
All the processors and microprocessors used in your server of web hosting Pakistan are collectively known as central processing unit or CPU. The web hosting server’s entire logic circuitry is contained in the CPU. This means all commands and instructions reside here and the CPU will order the tasks according to your request. More cores of the CPU mean it can think faster.
Basic Input/output System (BIOS)
The entire program controls which are essential for performing automatic functions are present in this part. These functions are needed for starting working of your server of web hosting in Pakistan so when you turn on the server, BIOS also turns on. All the output and input functions of the operating system and the devices attached to the motherboard, come under this system.
You can take this part as the college common room as all of the other rooms are linked with it for control and communications of the combined parts. It is the basic circuit of your server of web hosting in Pakistan and other hardware parts are attached with motherboard.
Random Access Memory (RAM)
All the data of application programs and operating system are stored on this part of your server of web hosting in Pakistan. This facilitates the use of information by the processor. Storage methods which use read/write operation are not that much faster like RAM. Memory is stored here on short term basis. RAM used in shared hosting servers is slow as compared to use in dedicated hosting servers.
