    Some of the largest reasons are as follows:
    -> To host their own stable communication server
    –> ie: IRC \ Ventrilio \ TeamSpeak

    -> To host their own stable connection for a specified server
    –> Private Servers of MMO Games \ Client-Based Online Games

    Otherwise if you want to run a server for something you have to leave your computer up all the time and use up your personal bandwidth. By having a dedicated server elsewhere you have the control over it to do what you want, but it doesn’t use any of your computer’s resources or bandwidth.

    You can also support more than you would be able to. I know groups that run dozens of game servers for their members. Any one person wouldn’t have those kinds of resources or bandwidth.

    Having a resorce for our own is always better than sharing a resource.

    dedicated servers are not shared thus they provide you with full speed.gamers are usuall users of dedicated servers because one second delay can cause the whole outcome of the game to be changed.
