VPS Hosting

Posted by hosttycoon On February - 24 - 2009

VPS (VPS Hosting, Virtual Private Servers or Virtual Machines) is a web hosting service created through any virtualization technology. VPS market niche which has been around ever since the adoption of the computing virtualization. Virtualization technologies (Kernel-based Virtual Machines, OpenVZ, Xen, VMware ESXi, Microsoft HyperV, FreeBSD Jail, Linux-VServer, Proxmox VE, VirtualBox, Parallels and many others) allow a single, stand-alone server (computer) to be divided (virtualizes) into a number of virtual computers (Virtual Machines or Virtual Servers). These Virtual Servers work and are seen from the external world as a separate computers. The different virtualization technologies create different types Of VPs and VMs. We could generalize (without being very precise) that there is no computing resource sharing with the Virtual Servers.

The standard, basic VPS Hosting service features a single virtualize computing instance, internet connectivity and IP settings, an Operating System installed on the virtual machine, as well as any remote management console.
