Every company both large and small that offers any type of hosting package will undoubtedly offer a dedicated hosting option. I think if it was possible 10, 15 years ago, Emerson, Lake and Palmer might have even been a four-piece band.
The truth is that many operating businesses do not have properly drafted and defined invoices given to their customers/clients. I have seen it too many times that often very important information is simply missing from the invoice.
