Virtual Private Servers
Get complete control!
A virtual private server (VPS) aka virtual dedicated server aka virtual server, offers you complete root access of the operating system while being more affordable than a dedicated server and easier to setup. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system, and each virtual server can be independently rebooted.
With a virtual private server you can install your own operating system, reboot your own server, access server root, install almost any application as long as it is supported by the operating system you have chosen, run your own dedicated database server or even a mail server and all these at the cost of a shared hosting account.
OS virtualization virtualizes servers on the operating system (kernel) layer. This method of virtualization creates isolated partitions, or virtual environments (VEs) on a single physical server and OS instance to utilize hardware, software, data center and management efforts with maximum efficiency.
