What Is Virtual Dedicated Server?
Virtual dedicated servers offer many of the capabilities and
features of dedicated servers, including admin (root) access and
dedicated IP addresses, but at a much lower price. However, as a
virtual dedicated server is, indeed, virtually dedicated,
the customer in fact shares the server space with a small number of
other customers. But because each virtual dedicated server is
effectively isolated from other accounts on the server, the user has
full control over the server space. As well, virtual dedicated
server plans feature very high performance and available disk space
Virtual private servers, which enable hosting providers to offer
virtual dedicated servers, are based on the concept of partitions on
mainframes that allow each division to function as a virtual
standalone server dedicated to a single customer. To ensure high and
reliable performance for all accounts, our server boxes are
partitioned in such a way that each virtual dedicated server
operates almost entirely independently of the other accounts that
share the server space. This means that with a virtual dedicated
server, you will enjoy consistent, high performance, even when usage
peaks on the main server.
Virtual dedicated servers are particularly useful for companies
and individuals that run higher-traffic Web sites or complex
applications and thus need the bandwidth, consistent performance,
and flexibility of a virtual dedicated server.
