A dedicated server is a web hosting server used by a single client company and is usually constructed according to the user’s specifications. Dedicated servers are typically used for websites that have high traffic, and need many resources and much processing power. A dedicated server is the opposite of a shared server. If your website has advanced size, security, or application needs, you might want to consider a dedicated server. Many clients feel more comfortable knowing that no other, essentially unknown persons have accounts on the same server, or can potentially slow down the server with their programs. This means that the hardware is reserved for your sites and nobody else’s.
