Have you ever heard of the term OVH?
Well, OVH is a French cloud computing company, that offers VPS, dedicated servers and other web services. The company was founded in 1999 by the Polish-born Klaba family and is headquartered in Roubaix, France. OVH is incorporated as a simplified joint-stock company under French law.
The company has 20 data centers  housing around 260,000 machines,  which are home to 18 million websites and 3,900,000 domain names. The company offers localized services (such as customer service offices) in many European countries, as well as in North America and Africa.
A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone else. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc.
There is also another level of dedicated or managed to host commonly referred to as complex managed hosting. Complex Managed Hosting applies to both physical dedicated servers, Hybrid server, and virtual servers, with many companies choosing a hybrid (combination of physical and virtual) hosting solution.
There are many similarities between standard and complex managed to host, but the key difference is the level of administrative and engineering support that the customer pays for – owing to both the increased size and complexity of the infrastructure deployment.
In the Web hosting business, a dedicated server refers to the rental and exclusive use of a computer that includes a Web server, related software, and connection to the Internet, housed in the Web hosting company’s premises.
A dedicated server is usually needed for a Web site (or set of related company sites) that may develop a considerable amount of traffic – for example, a site that must handle up to 35 million hits a day. The server can usually be configured and operated remotely from the client company. Web hosting companies claim that the use of a dedicated server on their premises saves router, Internet connection, security system, and network administration costs.
