One way or another, all websites are hosted on a server; which is basically a computer whose sole purpose is to host websites. A dedicated server is a server that you either own or lease, and nobody else's websites are hosted on that server as opposed to reseller plans and virtual hosting; in which your sites share a server with a bunch of other peoples' sites. Overall, it's the cheapest way you can buy hosting in large volumes and also tends to be the most reliable since you won't have someone elses' websites draining server resources and making your pages load slower.
