Virtual Dedicated Server Hosting
A virtual private server, also known as virtual dedicated server, provides one of the ways of partitioning one server computer into multiple servers. By this, each
server has the facade and capabilities of running on its own dedicated machine or computer. In each virtual private server hosting, a full-fledged operating system can independently run and reboot
Virtual private server hosting is not a new technology as it had been in common practice in mainframe computers. However, it has its rebirth with the improvement of
virtualization software and technologies for other architectures. In all, virtual dedicated server hosting acts as a bridge between shared web hosting services and dedicated server hosting services. The biggest advantage of using virtual private server hosting is its cheaper cost, in comparison to a dedicated server.
A virtual private server hosting generally runs its own copy of operating system with customers having super-user-level access. Above all, in virtual private server hosting, you can
easily install almost any software that runs on the OS. At times, certain software does not run well in a virtualized environment. This includes firewalls, anti-virus clients, and even the
virtualizers.Having said that, Arachno Net provide their virtual private servers, complete with raid disc mirroring, a secured /tmp directory, firewall and brute force detection system
Recent time has witnessed the massive increase of the number of virtualization clients. These virtualization clients, usually, run on a single machine. A virtual private server web hosting generally has limited processor time, RAM, and disk space. You will be surprised to know that at times virtual private servers are also employed as honeypots. These honeypots allow a machine to purposely run software with known security flaws. They, of course, make sure that it is done without endangering the rest of the server. Multiple honeypots can be quickly set up through virtual private servers in this fashion.
While choosing a virtual private server hosting company, ask the following questions. Finalize your selection only if you are convinced:
1/ What are the specifications of the host server, that is, the RAM, CPU, and network throughout?
2/ How many virtual private servers are run on the host server that you'll be on?
3/ How is resource contention handled? In other words, what happens if all the other virtual private servers on your host server are running CPU/RAM-intensive processes?
4/ Last but not the least, do you have a dedicated minimum amount of RAM/CPU/Network usage? If so, how much?
