There are many reasons why dedicated servers are more expensive than cloud based servers. By definition, the word dedicated means that you have exclusive access to the server and its resources. There is no one else to share or bear the operational costs so all the operational and maintenance costs have to be borne by the user.

When you choose a dedicated server to manage your website and applications, you have to invest upfront in hardware and software systems and hire the best IT professionals to manage and maintain them. This can cost money. Also, there are recurring expenses as maintenance instances could increase with time.

With cloud servers, you just rent server space from a cloud computing service and use the resources to run and manage your websites and applications. The service comes with support staff team of IT experts who will take care of all aspects of maintenance and repairs. You will have access to all the resources you need but the billing will be only for the ones that you have actually used. In a dedicated server system, you pay upfront for all the resources loaded on the dedicated server, and will be billed for the sum total of resources allocated, regardless of whether you have used 10% or 90% of these. In cloud, the pay as you go plan can bring down operational costs significantly.
