What precisely is Dedicated Hosting?

Dedicated hosting is renting a physical high-performance server only for your company or website. Dedicated hosting is substantially quicker than shared hosting and virtual private servers. Why?

Dedicated servers can successfully host your site if you have a demanding website with high-performance requirements.

What is a domain name?

A domain name is a unique string of characters related to your website, something you can remember easily, like "blogspot.com ". A domain name includes the top-level domain (TLD), which can be a country-code top-level domain (ccTLD) like gmail.com or a generic TLD like org.uk. Your website is hosted on another website's server, so you must register the specific server's name and subdomain (www in our case).
