A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is
a type of Internet hosting where the client leases an entire server not
shared with anyone. 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 usually be
provided by the hosting company as an add-on service. In some cases a
dedicated server can offer less overhead and a larger return on investment.
Dedicated servers are most often housed in data centers, similar to
colocation facilities, providing redundant power sources and HVAC systems.
In contrast to colocation, a dedicated hosting service provides system
administration and owns the server itself.
