VPS or Virtual Private Server technology allows the website owners to share the entire expenses of a dedicated web server between them. It also enables the website owners to enjoy total control over the installed applications and run them on the web server.
Multiple virtual private servers can perform as a separated process within a web server. They provide dedicated root access and total privacy to unmetered VPS hosting accounts. These servers also offer CPU resources, disk space, guaranteed bandwidth, memory and the likes.
In-Depth Idea about Unmetered VPS Hosting
Unmetered virtual private server hosing exemplifies a perfect balance and blend between dedicated hosting and shared web hosting. A VPS involves a single hardware node split into several virtual private systems (known as VDS or VPS). Virtualization technology, in either OpenVZ or Xen, fully distinguishes VDS or VPS or VMs from each other. It implies that each VPS is provided with a guaranteed set of necessary resources including CPU, Hard Drive Space and RAM. Furthermore, each VPS is equipped with full root access.
Traditionally, root access and guaranteed resources were made available with full dedicated servers but today, virtualization of technology lets the dedicated server hosting companies offer virtually private servers at best competitive prices possible, which will make the VPS options less costly than a dedicated server.
VPS hosting is a much sought-after option by many companies if we compare the picture with dedicated servers. Each hardware mode refers to a Dell enterprise class server or Supermicro which features a 16 Intel XEON CPU/Processors, 4 or 8 RAID10 hard drives and 32GB DDR3 ECC RAM. VPS hardware has to be so heavy that it can perform its function as a hosting server with adequate specialization.
VPS integrates features of both shared and dedicated servers but, wonderfully surpasses the limitations specific both types of hosting options. It divides a single web server into multiple individual virtual web servers by using special software. Each virtual server functions as a completely independent system, simulating the characteristics of a dedicated server.
The main physical server is logically partitioned and rented out to multiple users, allowing them to run their own operating system and access to these partitions. The access provides greater technical control to the users and lets them install, change and upgrade system software required for execution of any root user operation.
Unmetered virtual private servers make a perfect choice for those who want to enjoy the features of dedicated servers at a reasonable price.
