What is a hosting server?
A hosting server enables you to upload your site onto it. In some cases, there might be even thousands of web sites on one single web hosting server. The hosting server basically is a computer with special hardware, which is physically located in a datacenter facility with special cooling systems, whose purpose is to ensure the smooth functioning of the hosting server and all the websites accommodated on it.
In short, a hosting server will be indeed a launch pad when the time comes for you to launch your web site. It could be any type of website - a business site having a lot of web pages, or a site, which includes just a few pages and which you have built simply for your acquaintances and family members.

E-commerce hosting usually includes providing templates for building virtual storefronts or online catalogs, providing software for customized electronic "shopping carts," taking and filling customer orders, arranging for secure credit-card purchasing, and providing tools for tracking and managing inventory.

A dedicated server is a single computer in a network reserved for serving the needs of the network. For example, some networks require that one computer be set aside to manage communications between all the other computers. A dedicated server could also be a computer that manages printer resources. Note, however, that not all servers are dedicated. In some networks, it is possible for a computer to act as a server and perform other functions as well.
In the Web hosting business, a dedicated server is typically a rented service. The user rents the server, software and an Internet connection from the Web host.
