The Virtual Dedicated Server Source

What is a Virtual Dedicated Server?

A Virtual Dedicated Server is a method pf physical partitioning a server computer into multiple servers and each has the capabilities of running on its own dedicated machine. Each one of these Virtual Dedicated Server  has it own operating system, and can be independently rebooted. 

A example of this would be a single server might have two virtual private servers running, one hosting a live website, and a second which houses a copy of it. When update of software  is needed, they can be tested in the second virtual dedicated server, this allows for detailed testing to be conducted without requiring several physical servers.  



Virtual Dedicated Servers can also fill the gap if you outgrow a shared hosting plan but not ready for your own dedicated server. A Virtual Dedicated Server is cheaper and still allows you to install and configure any programs you want. You can also host unlimited number of websites. You can also host other services, such as mail server, an FTP server, or any type of server you want. You can also use the server for backup, file storage, or anything you want just like a dedicated server.

Since you are in control of the virtual dedicated server, you are also responsible for all installation, maintenance, security and updates. If you are inexperienced with a Linux Dedicated Server and not willing, or don't have the time to learn it, this could be a drawback.  With a Virtual Dedicated Server you have an entire operating system, but you still share hardware resources, like CPU and RAM and Broadband, with other businesses or individuals. If performance if a key issue, or you're running a RAM-intensive programs, virtual dedicated server might not be the right solution for you.

Price range for a Virtual Dedicated Server can vary from $20 per month up to more than $100 per month. One word of caution here, price isn't always an indication of more features or better service. If you are unsure that virtual dedicated server is right for you or your business, starting at the lower end might be the right solution for you. You can always expand, just be sure to choose a hosting company that can accommodate your expansion.
