Dedicated Server

Definition by Web Hosting Ratings:

Similar to co-location, except that you lease or rent hardware from a Web host.  The main advantage over co-location is easier upgrade and usually better support.  Getting a dedicated server or co-locating is necessary for sites that outgrow shared servers because they use a lot of bandwidth and resources or they require total control over software environment.
