What is a Hosted Server?

A hosted server is identical to a server found on-premise, except that it sits in a data centre or is a virtual machine in a cluster of servers in the data centre. A fully hosted server is different from a shared server, the user has full control over the operating system and hardware provisioning. The largest advantage of a hosted server is the ability to quickly scale the server up. Additional hard drive space or memory can simply be provisioned through a console, rather than having to open up a physical server and adding components. The other big advantage is giving remote users the ability to connect to their services as high speed.
