Whilst any computer running special software can function as a server, the most typical use of the word refers to larger, higher-powered machines that function as the core for pushing and pulling data from the internet. As a rule, the larger the network - in terms of users who connect to it and/or the amount of data that it moves - the more likely it is that several servers play a role, each dedicated to a specific purpose.

Business Servers and Dedicated Servers

Why Use a Dedicated Server?

By using a dedicated server, you will have full control over your hosting. Most off the shelf packages mean that the resources on the server are shared with other users. A dedicated server gives you complete control over the server and its resources, including storage, memory, CPU and bandwidth.

Think of it as like having your own server in your offices whereby you can easily log in as an administrator and install your applications and manage resources.

Hosting your website on a dedicated server will also tick Google’s boxes – you’re not sharing an IP address with other websites, your site will load faster, and you’ll see far less downtime.
