Remote ServerRent VDS / VPS servers have long ceased to be expensive on the market, there are hundreds of companies offering any configuration, at any price, anyone can pick out his suit for the performance and financial costs. By virtue of reliability, most hosting providers and private companies use the server to UNIX systems: FreeBSD and various Linux distributions (Debian, CentOS, etc.).
Renting a Unix server, you need to clearly define for themselves a few moments, first, the server - not the home computer, and secondly, Unix - not of windows, in the third, the server needs attention, sometimes a lot, sometimes not, the amount will depend on the tasks which aims to solve this server. Based on the foregoing, the reliability and stability of the server, and thus the resources placed on it, in many respects depends on the initial system configuration, customization of software components and services (web server, MySQL server, or the Postgres, postal services, etc.), timely service in the process, to respond in case of emergency situations, from the administration. I guess not everyone can afford or has the desire to spend a lot of time to develop the unfamiliar operating system itself, with its characteristics, features and cockroaches in my head. Otherwise, often, this comes at the expense of planned projects for the sake of which has been rented / purchased server.

Protection against DDoS attacks *
A small remark about protection against DDoS attacks. DDoS - Distributed Denial of Service (distributed attack with the result of "denial of service"). Do not forget that from the more or less serious and competent DDoS attacks, not close on the server side can only help their equipment on the side of the provider (hosting company), well, any third-party specialized services involved in filtering traffic on its customers' hardware. In the case of small DDoS attacks, there are a number of measures to not stop the attack, but to minimize its effectiveness and impact on services located on servers.

Application and features
Type of hosting in which the client is provided with a separate physical machine. Generally dedicated server is used to run applications that can not coexist on the same server with other projects or have high resource requirements. The owner of the dedicated server, free to change the configuration of your computer, install any operating system version on the server to hold all the technical work, it does not interfere with the work of other services and servers. Frequently, in addition to the dedicated server provides access KVM / IP, it allows to remotely configure and BIOS software.
Virtual Dedicated Server/Virtual Private Servert
The service in which user is provided with a so-called virtual dedicated server. The plan for the most part it is the operating system control corresponds to a physical dedicated server. In particular: root-access, private IP-addresses, ports, filtering rules and routing tables. Inside a virtual dedicated server, you can create your own versions of system libraries or modify existing, VPS owner can delete, add, modify any file, including files in the root and other service directories, and install custom applications or customize / modify any available to him the application software.
