Dedicated web servers are for those who want all the power to themselves without having to share any of it with other users and their customers. Dedicated hosting, as opposed to shared hosting, is a hosting solution that's all yours. In a shared hosting environment, you share a server's resources with other users with running on their own virtual servers and sharing the hardware resources. With a dedicated solution, you get your own Linux dedicated server with all of its resources to use as you please for your website. That means all the bandwidth, RAM, CPU, and data transfer are all yours. Essentially you're renting a complete server from us.
