A dedicated server is a physical server located in one of our data centres. Unlike Web Hosting plans also referred to as "shared hosting" , which are technically managed by OVHcloud, you are fully responsible for the administration of your dedicated server. This guide will help you with the first steps of managing your dedicated server. When your dedicated server is first set up during the order process, you can select which operating system will be installed. From the General information tab, click on On the next screen, select either Install from an OVHcloud template or Install one of your templates in order to use a template for the installation.

Why Host Your Own Dedicated Server?
Is your website slowing to a crawl? It could be due to increased traffic or poor shared server performance. A decline in performance is the most common sign that a move to a dedicated server would benefit your site. Slowdowns are also typical on improperly managed shared hosting platforms, where another site unrelated to yours can cause problems for you. But low-quality shared hosting can cause performance issues for websites. A VPS is just what the name implies, a virtual web server.
Half of the top-ten most-played games on Steam come with the option to customize your entire gameplay, right up through running your own dedicated server. Are you going to sit back and play the game how somebody else envisioned it, or are you going to grab the goat by the horns, run your own server, and make it personal? There are many reasons why people rent a server from a remote provider; ranging from bandwidth availability, dedicated support, or even to eliminate any latency advantages between player and host.
