Do you know what a dedicated server is? If not, we wrote an article about What is Dedicated Server Hosting?
Essentially, dedicated server hosting is like renting a desktop computer that is kept in a special cool room, or data center. Dedicated servers are generally more powerful than desktop computers and are used mostly for networking applications, web hosting, and so much more. A majority of the internet is run through a dedicated server of some sort, whether it is hosted on a virtual private server running on a dedicated server, or even shared hosting which is just another form of reselling and overselling a dedicated server. A dedicated server is an all purpose server hosted and leased to a single person, organization, or entity, whereas the hosting provider covers all startup procedures and grants you complete control over the entirety of the server.
