A dedicated server, dedicated hosting service, or complex managed hosting service is a kind of Internet hosting in which the client rents a whole server not shared with anybody else.

A dedicated server, dedicated hosting service, or complex managed hosting service is a kind of Internet hosting in which the client rents a whole server not shared with anybody else.

A dedicated server is more flexible than shared hosting, as companies have complete control over the server(s), consisting of options of the os, hardware, etc.

 Likewise, complex managed hosting is frequently described as another level of dedicated or managed hosting. Complex Managed Hosting uses physical dedicated servers, Hybrid servers, and virtual servers, with many companies choosing a hybrid (a combination of virtual and physical) hosting solution. There are many similarities between complicated and basic managed hosting. Still, the critical distinction is the level of administrative and engineering support the client pays for-- owing to both the increased size and intricacy of the facilities implementation.

 The company takes control of most of the management, including security, memory, storage, and IT support. The service is primarily proactive in nature. The hosting company can usually provide server administration as an additional service. Sometimes, a dedicated server can offer less overhead and a more significant return on investment. Dedicated servers are hosted in information centers, frequently offering a redundant source of power and HVAC systems. In contrast to colocation, the server hardware is owned by the service provider, who will provide support for operating applications or systems in many cases.

 Utilizing a dedicated hosting service uses the advantages of high efficiency, security, e-mail stability, and control. Because dedicated hosting is relatively expensive, it is mainly used by websites with considerable traffic volume.
