What is a VPS?

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a hosting environment that combines the benefits of both shared hosting and dedicated hosting. It does this by creating a virtual server that runs inside a hardware server via a specially designed partition.

Each Virtual Private Server partition runs its own operating system in a secure and private environment and cannot be accessed or interrupted by other VPS’s within the same hardware.

This gives you the same level of root access as a dedicated server whilst sharing the cost of the hardware. With a VPS you are virtually running your own server at a fraction of the cost - with lots of benefits.

       
  How does VPS technology work?  
  Using VMware®, the industry-leading virtualization technology, we partition our hardware nodes into 'Virtual Servers' which behave exactly like individual dedicated servers, but all sit on the same physical hardware.

Each "Virtual Server" in turn has its own operating system with root access and a 100% guaranteed equal share of resources (Processor, Disk, RAM) which can be appropriated for any purpose. The real beauty of the system is that one VPS cannot physically be affected by another VPS using the same hardware. A Virtual Server behaves exactly like an isolated stand-alone Dedicated Server.
       
  Dynamic Partitioning  
  Due to fair sharing technology, each partition can have almost the same power as the full server. Hundreds of partitions can be created on one server, each with full dedicated-server functionality - root access, the ability to reboot and install any application, or change any file.
       
  Resource Management  
  The technology we use allows for mainframe-like levels of resource utilization, monitoring and control on standard hardware. In addition to standard CPU, disk space and network I/O, it also enables complete memory (user, kernel and disk cache) and disk I/O management. VPS's are fully isolated with minimum and maximum resource guarantees, and very reasonable contention levels - which means you can be assured of the computing power you need.
       
  OS Virtualization  
  VPS technology also enables us to move live sites or hundreds of running applications to another physical server for planned system maintenance or when hardware upgrades are required. This can be done with only a few seconds of planned downtime, with huge gains in availability.
       
  Optimum Performance vs Cost  
  VPS technology enables the costs of hardware, licensing, network connectivity, and systems maintenance to be distributed amongst those sharing the VPS machine. Therefore VPS represents an affordable choice that still delivers the performance of a dedicated server - at a fraction of the cost.
       
  OS and Application Templating  
  Using our own application and OS templates, we are able to group together and deploy updates and applications to specific entire systems. This in turn enables the integrated versioning of all system files, libraries, and applications. Additional benefits include improved system uptime and improved security.
