sites requiring more power than what normal hosting
can provide, a dedicated server is usually the better
route to take.
Having a dedicated server is a completely different
from normal virtual (shared) hosting. The server
is now fully yours - the entire hard disk and all
the bandwidth allocated can be used as you want
with full secured. There is no longer any CPU Usage
restriction. If you need, you can use up 100% CPU
utilization. You can put all your sites, databases,
applications etc. on this one server without having
to worry about paying hosting fees for each site
But along with these new liberations come new responsibilities.
Most important is to ensure that you server is always
patched and up to date. There are new updates being
constantly released, which if not applied to your
server could let a hacker could gain inner access
to your server.
Because management can be so difficult, there are
usually two types of dedicated hosting offered:
your host will not help you maintain the server.
Far more cheaper than managed dedicated, you should
only opt for an unmanaged server if you are well
versed with how a server functions. The server
will be given to you either with a plain operating
system installation or with a control panel installed.
It is your duty to take care of all upgrades,
patches, configuration, security, and fixing any
problems. In such a situation, it might be worthwhile
to hire a system administrator to ensure that
your server is always in good condition
your host will assist you in the upkeep of your
server. This can be quite expensive, but for those
without the technical skills it can be very helpful.
By choosing to go with a managed dedicated server,
the web host will help you with the above-mentioned
administrator responsibilities. While more expensive,
it will save you the headache of trying to get
your server to work if there are any problems.

Dedicated servers come either as just plain installations
(where only the operating system and basic services
are installed) or with a control panel. The control
panel lets you easily modify most server features
from a web page. It should be noted that the control
panel will have limitations, and will not provide
access to everything.
It should be noted that with a dedicated server,
even though you may be paying a set up fee, the
server is usually owned by the company . you are
only renting it for the time being.
