What is a Dedicated Servers?
Why bother using a dedicated server over a VPS or Shared Hosting?
A dedicated server is a server 100% dedicated to your website/project or business needs. Unlike shared servers, all of the resources are not shared and no other websites/persons have access to them. Having a dedicated server will increased speeds in bandwidth and CPU/Memory/DiskIO (DiskIO meaning disk speed) higher reliability and a higher-end security are much better as you are the root owner of a server aka Node if virtualized. Dedicated servers give you have the full control over how the server is set up, you can edit the hardware configuration (before installing and setting up a server) and custom software/script options tailored to your specific needs and plans.
When considering a dedicated server and comparing a VPS server to a dedicated server the difference would be the raw power not being shared when using a dedicated server, also consider a dedicated server is not a container and any breach would be down to your own faults and not the fault of your hosting provider. If you plan to set up virtualization do make sure you always use a dedicated server.
Why Do You Need a Dedicated Server?
A regular server can be hosted from anything that has a connection to the internet, even your own computer! However, if you were to run a server from your own computer, it would inevitably slow down thanks to the processing power going to the server. This would cause it to shut off every time you turned off your computer. If you’re looking to maintain a reliable connection to the server without reduced computer power or the chance of it randomly failing, you’ll want to make it a dedicated server.
A dedicated server is the best performance hosting option with no errors from the host and no downtime because the host messed something up, also consider the fact that in most cases with unmanaged dedicated server hosting that even if your host you pay for server at is down your server will be guaranteed to be online.
