A physical server can have multiple Cloud Dedicated Servers, each of these virtual servers working in a similar way to a dedicated server. Cloud Dedicated Servers are a good choice for those who need more resources.

Advantages:

  • Cloud Dedicated Server Service allows you to more specific settings;

  • Dedicated resources for the client, more disk space and memory;
