FAQs About DreamHost Dedicated Servers
What is Dedicated Hosting?
Think of a dedicated web server as a storage unit for your website or web applications. It keeps documents, videos, images and other computer files online. Web hosting companies rent space to you. All you’ve got to do is upload files or a website onto the server.
Shared: If you’re new to web hosting, a shared platform is great for learning the ropes. It’s perfectly adequate for businesses and websites that have light to moderate web traffic and don’t require complex, customized server configurations.
Dedicated: With this option, you’re the sole user on the server. Its capacity and resources are all yours. This gives you much more control over its configuration and overall operating environment. There’s also a wider variety of services and software to choose from.Learn More
What can you do with a Dedicated Server?

A dedicated server is the ultimate in power, security, and control. With a dedicated server, you won’t have to share resources with anyone. Here are some of the top reasons that people choose a dedicated server over other hosting options:
- Security is a top priority
- You expect consistently high levels of traffic
- Page load times need to be lightning fast
- You need custom programming options
- You’re anticipating major growth
If you have a site that needs reliable web hosting, you may want to think about dedicated hosting. Unlike shared web hosting, you have control over your own server. You'll experience enhanced security because you won't ever need to share the server with anyone else.Learn More
VPS: A Virtual Private Server, still involves hosting several websites on the same server, but there's a hypervisor that ensures that one website doesn't start causing trouble for the other sites on the server. With VPS Hosting, you're allocated a certain amount of RAM, bandwidth and server space.
Dedicated: You're able to choose the equipment, including the amount and type of RAM, the size and type of hard drive and the processor, used in the server. Further, 100 percent of the server's resources are allocated to your site and they aren't shared with any others.Learn More
With a dedicated server, you’ll have access to all the resources to handle even the highest traffic websites. With plenty of room to grow, you won't have to worry about RAM, disk space or bandwidth ever again.Learn More
