Talks about games coming out with Dedicated Servers

Aren't all servers dedicated to that game or what am I not understanding here?

A dedicated server for gaming means that the servers only job is to host a games multiplayer...sadly the 300, 000 "dedicated" servers aren't actually dedicated or even physical servers

It's a server that will never leave you or cheat on you.
