What is Virtual Private Server (VPS) Hosting?

A Virtual Private Server is a new breed of hosting that gives you the features and functionality of a dedicated server but at a much lower price point. A Virtual Private Server, or VPS, account will be created on one physical server along with a number of other VPS accounts. However, the physical server will be running special virtualization technology (in our case, OpenVZ or Xen) that separates the hardware and software. This allows each VPS to get full root access and be setup, customized and run independently of the physical hardware. You can even reboot your VPS!
