What is a dedicated server?

A dedicated server is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone else. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc. Server administration can be done by client or be provided by the hosting company as an add-on service. Dedicated servers are most often housed in data centers providing redundant power sources and HVAC systems. The server hardware is owned by the hosting provider and they will provide support for server hardware replacement at no cost to clients. Using a dedicated server offers the benefits of high performance, security, application stability, and control. Dedicated server hosting is an ideal solution for websites with high traffic volumes, sensitive customer content or those in need of secure e-commerce applications.

Which Operating System should I choose to install on my server?

This depends on your requirements. If you use PHP, Perl or mySQL with your website, then a Linux distribution would be the most suitable. If you use ASP and/or MS SQL, then Windows is the obvious choice. These constraints aside, Linux has the advantage that (except for Red Hat Enterprise) it is free, where as Windows comes with a monthly license fee. If you decide that you’d prefer to have a GUI to administer your sites with, then a Linux server with Plesk is still the cheaper (and more popular) option.

What are the advantages of a dedicated server?

Compared to shared hosting (that is, a website located on a server shared between lots of other websites) the main advantage is that you get complete access to all the resources of the hardware. No other website can cause your server to run slowly or run out of memory because you get exclusive access to the physical machine. You also get complete control of all the software installed, including the Operating System. In addition, dedicated servers are usually much more secure than shared hosting because there are no other customers on the same physical hardware.
