What is Dedicated hosting?

Dedicated Server HostingDedicated HostingDedicated hosting is a hosting environment, where one or more servers are dedicated for a single client. The client effectively leases the server from the hosting provider. The hosting provider provides the server machine, the connectivity, and the required software and operating system, to run the server. Dedicated hosting can also be split into two categories – managed and unmanaged dedicated hosting. For managed dedicated hosting, the hosting provider will provide the services of running and maintaining the server within their own data centre. This is a good choice if you don’t have the personnel, money or time, to operate a server in-house. This is the choice for web developers, who do not want to be bogged down by server management activities. While for unmanaged dedicated hosting, there will be a lot of support and maintenance features that are not provided by the hosting provider, and will be done by the customers themselves. This is normally the hosting choice for system administrators who want to manage their servers themselves.
