What is the VPS or VDS?
The Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) or Virtual Private Server(VPS) s a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting provider. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install any software that runs on that OS.
Why is it Virtual?
It is Virtual because the physical server is shared among several consumers - virtual servers.
Why is it Dedicated?
It is dedicated because servers are completely isolated one from another on the level of operating system.
What is the difference between VDS, VPS, VM, Cloud server?
There is no difference. These all mean the same - the virtual server. VDS - Virtual Dedicated Server. VPS - Virtual Private Server. VM - Virtual Machine. We prefer to use the VPS abbreviation to emphasize on the fact that the server is fully dedicated and isolated from other servers.
How is it possible to share the physical server between virtual servers?
In order to work it requires a combination of a proper hardware and software.
For the hardware it requires special CPUs with support of virtualization. For the software it requires a special application called a hypervisor.
The hypervisor is installed on the bare hardware and it is a special operating system that allows installing, hosting and managing of virtual severs.
There are several hypervisors on the market. Our choice is the VMware VSphere 5. This is one of the best in class, best performing hypervisor.
How VPS compares to other hosting products?
There are several hosting choices on the market. These include service hosting (web, database and other services) VDS/VPS, cloud, dedicated servers hosting and collocation. The VPS stand out as a most affordable solution with a very high flexibility. With the price range of the service hosting it is providing capabilities otherwise available only with dedicated hosting or collocation.
What are the benefits of using the VPS compared to the hardware dedicated servers?
- Faster resources upgrade. Since the VPS is hosted on very powerful servers with lots of resources, upgrading you virtual server is a matter of changing several settings when with the dedicated server it is a time consuming operation. To upgrade the hardware dedicated server it requires the presence of personal on site and customers charged for the work.
- Better equipment - higher availability. We host VPS on high quality, branded equipment. To have such a dedicated server would cost hundreds of dollars per month. This is why inexpensive dedicated servers usually custom built with cheap, low quality parts.
- Remote access, remote media. Having one more level of manageability between hardware and operating system in VDS gives unprecedented level of remote capabilities.
That includes:
· access to BIOS of virtual server
· ability to remotely access crashed server or server with lost network connectivity
· ability to remotely attach media (local CD/DVD, local and remote ISO images, floppy drives)
· ability to remotely install and reinstall operating system
This features can be compared to HP iLO, IBM Remote Assistant or DEll DRAC but included for free with all our VDS packages.
What can I do with my VPS?
The physical parameters of the server are the only limit.
You are given a server with particular amount of disk space, memory, processor power and network bandwidth. It is also preinstalled with an operating system.
Everything else is up to you. You can do with the virtual server whatever you like. You can utilize the provided hardware 100% within supplied limits. You can host sites, services, databases. You can use is for trading or intensive calculations. You can host gaming servers, provide proxy solutions, VOIP gateways or anything you'll decide appropriate.
However, there are some prohibited activities such as spamming, phishing and other activities considered as a crime by USA law. Please read our terms of service for more details.
What types of operating systems are supported?
We support majority of modern operating systems.
The server will be preconfigured with any of the following operating systems:
Windows 2016
Windows 10
Windows 2012 R2
Windows 2012
Windows 2008 R2
Linux CentOS
Linux Debian
Linux Ubuntu server
Linux Fedora
Linux Mint
You may also reinstall the system with your own OS
Is it possible to install my own OS?
Yes, it is.
With VMware ESXi is possible to remotely attach OS installation media (CD/DVD/ISO image) and make it visible as a VDS local CD/DVD ROM. After that the installation will proceed as usual. However installing may take a longer time, depending on your connection speed (since the OS installation files transferred over network).
How can I access my server or remotely manage it?
There are at least 2 ways the VPS can be managed remotely.
Independently on what Operating system is installed or in what state the VDS is, it can be managed with ESXi vSphere Client.
Additionally there a built in remote server management capabilities depending on operating system.
Windows servers
All Windows servers also can be managed with Remote Desktop Connection (RDC). The RDC is enabled during initial configuration process of all our Windows VDS.
Linux/Unix servers
For all our Linux/Unix servers we enable SSH by default.
How resources are shared: Disk space, Memory, Processor?
Disk space is dedicated, but the HDDs and SSDs are shared.
There is no overprovisioning between virtual servers. In other words if there are 10 virtual servers and each has 50GB disk, there are at least 500GB storage is available on the host.
The virtual server most likely would share the HDD or SSD with other virtual servers. And it is important to understand that the bigger the disk of the VDS the fewer neighbors it will have on the same hard drive and faster it would be.
However the virtual servers are guaranteed but not locked to use just a percentage of disk time. If at any time there is no other users of the disk - single virtual server can have 100% of disk time.
Memory is dedicated without overlapping. Each virtual server has its own chunk of physical memory.
Processor is shared but guaranteed that in 95% of time it will be available for full speed. Statistics tells us that on average the CPU usage of virtual servers is only 9%. That includes peak hours with usage of 100% and slow hours when usage is close to zero. This is one of the greatest features of virtualization when you benefit so much from the CPU sharing without losing the performance.
In real life the combined CPU usage of our host server is never above 60% and the availability of virtual CPUs is always 100% for all virtual servers.
Is there any firewall of other traffic filters between my server and the Internet?
No, the traffic is not filtered. All ports and protocols are open.
What hardware is used for hosting the VPS?
We use branded servers with latest Intel Xeon processors and enterprise class SSDs and HDDs. The storage is protected by either hardware RAID or (in case of SSD) built in enterprise level protection.
