What is a Server?

In the context of this article, a Server describes a special computer that is configured to provide services such as Hosting (a rented space for your website to exist on the Internet) and Email services (a point of presence (POP) where your emails are collected and sent on to you.

What is a Dedicated Server?

To put it simply a Dedicated Server is dedicated to one Company so that only their customer websites or email accounts exist on that server.

Cheap hosting services use Virtual Private Servers (VPS). In effect it means you can be sharing the server with many other unknown people from anywhere in the world. It could be a hobbyist in China or someone in Russia playing with experimental code to SPAM people. It is quite common for you to experience disruption to your services as others draw on the resources of the server with massive SPAMming programmes. Or even worse one of your unknown shared customer’s website might be hacked and attempt to infect your website and email services with Malicious Spyware or Viruses.

Typically the server software is outdated, hosted abroad (USA, India or Germany) full of security holes and inflexible.
