Dedicated Server

Overview

A dedicated server is a single server in a network responsible for supporting the needs of that network. For example, a server set to handle only the communications between all computers at your office is considered a dedicated server. Many internet hosting service providers offer both dedicated and shared options, with the latter being a significantly cheaper option. Although a dedicated server can be costly, it comes with many distinct advantages.

However, not all servers are dedicated. In some networks a computer can act as a server and perform other functions as well.
