Can comebody give me some background info on servers.

Is there any point in me renting one.

Can u use it to improve the speed in which i can obtain things off the net.

I presume you mean a server in a company office. This is basically a computer that has all the other computers (clients) networked to it. It will hold all the company information and provide internet access.

In a large company it may be linked to other servers in other premises.

u server, u know the way u cant rent them or make your own.

people do this so that they can use for p2p programes etc.

is there an advantage to this, cause servers have faster connections.
