Soo, now to the real issue at hand- although I consider myself somewhat of a "geek", I really wasn't that familiar with dedicated servers. I mean sure, I have heard of things like the Xeon Dedicated Server, but that's about as far as my knowledge went. So, in case any of my readers were pondering important issues like dedicated servers, here's a little info on the subject.
A dedicated server is a single computer in a network, that is reserved-or dedicated- for serving the network needs. It could be used to manage the printing, or possibly just for managing communications with the other computers in the network. There are also dedicated servers in web hosting, which are usually rented for service. Typically a person would rent the server and internet connection from the web host. These are also called a dedicated hosting service, and is a much better option for most people. As a dedicated hosting service client, you have full control over the operating system and hardware used. You receive much better security for your site, faster and better performance, and complete control. It is usually only utilized by websites with a high traffic count, due to the higher cost of service-but for people with a site that gets a large amount of hits, it is definitely worth it!
