What is a Dedicated Server?

Good morning everyone!! Or should I say good afternoon:) Some of us are getting ready to take a trip and we are planning on being away a couple days. I have things pretty much scheduled so please don't leave my blog:D Just kidding. You all are loyal readers and I appreciate my blog readers. Today I have kind of an odd subject. I have to admit, I had no idea what a Dedicated Server was before I got this assignment. Okay, okay, not really an assignment, but an offer to write about a dedicated server. But I personally had no clue to what it was. I assumed with a server we were talking about something that had to do with the internet. So I went searching and found some interesting facts and information that I thought I would share with you all. If you aren't interested, please just skip to the next post. But I think you might learn a couple things and maybe increase your knowledge. I know I sure did!! And believe me, I am not a geek or very tech oriented at all. So this is coming from a newbie:)

First off, let me explain about a server. Not all servers are dedicated. There are such things as just a plain server. Basically you have a network of computers and some of them are dedicated to a certain thing. While other servers are used for many different things. Now, a dedicated server could be set aside for a number of options and one of them is for communications. Basically there would be a computer just for managing this. Or one that would be in charge of printer resources. You also have a web hosting term that is kind of difficult to get into but basically it means is a rented service. Again, this is called a dedicated server. If I was to bring it down to layman's terms, think of it like at a business. Say you have a manager who is in charge of emails. Everything goes through her and she is the person dedicated to this task. Just as a marketing manager is set apart to take care of all marketing options and such. In this same manner a dedicated server is set aside for certain tasks. Again, this may not be helpful to anyone, but I found it kind of neat after I researched it.
