Dedicated hosting is when someone rents a server because they want to utilize all of a server's available resources (RAM, etc.). Those involved in dedicated hosting operate a server themselves. Managed hosting is similar and for people who want to utilize a server's available resources. It differs from dedicated hosting in that a company manages the server on behalf of the person renting it. Dedicated hosting is best for those with the IT knowledge and technical expertise available to operate a server. Choose which type of hosting your require.

The applications, scripts and other software a web site utilizes are managed by its processor. The greater the capacity of the processor, the faster a server will operate.

If you do not know the processor speed you require, or have no specific preferences as far as processor speed is concerned, choose 'No Preference'.
Unlike shared hosting where any web site can utilize a server's available resources (RAM, etc.), the resources available through dedicated or managed hosting are available to a single user. Indicate here the minimum amount of RAM you require. If you do not know the amount of RAM you require, or have no specific preferences as far as the amount of RAM is concerned, choose 'No Preference'.
