VDSLet’s talk a little bit about VDS Hosting. First things first, VDS Hosting or virtual dedicated servers, is another way of saying VPS Hosting or virtual private server hosting. VDS VPS is a virtual server solution which allows consumers to utilize the best of both shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting in a virtual server environment supplying scalability, stellar resource allocation and a secure environment to host your virtual Linux and/or your virtual Windows server.
Virtual Dedicated Server Benefits
- VDS VPS Operating System Selection – Unlike the limiting confines of shared hosting, virtual server solutions allow the consumer to utilize any virtual Windows or virtual Linux OS they want. Be it Windows Server 2012, Windows 2008 R2, Fedora 18 or Ubuntu 12.10 etc. virtual server web hosting allows virtual dedicated server companies to virtualize any OS suited to server web hosting. This allows anyone, regardless of their OS background, to comfortably operate their virtual dedicated server.
- Virtual Dedicated Servers Virtualization Tech – By its very name and nature, everything done on virtual dedicated servers implies virtualization. Although we aren’t going to get into the technicalities of how virtualization works, we will discuss the different types of virtualization tech available on the market. Speaking from the Solar VPS perspective, we utilize Xen virtualization technology solutions to virtualize all our needs however there are other solutions on the market. Namely: VDS VMWare, VDS KVM and VDS OpenVZ. While VDS VMWare, VDS KVM and VDS OpenVZ all do a great job in performing virtualization needs, Solar VPS utilizes Xen over VDS VMWare and the like because our consumers like it more. It’s nothing to do with virtualization technicalities. Rather the choice of Xen is found in what sells the most – for Solar VPS, Xen is the most popular virtualization solution.
- VDS Price Points – Unlike dedicated web hosting which can cost companies an arm and a leg to operate on a yearly basis, as a VDS basic provider, Solar VPS embraces the more cost effective price structuring of virtual dedicated server web hosting. As a VDS basic provider – some call us a VDS pro – Solar VPS hosting plans begin at $17.50 per month for virtual Linux hosting and $29.50 per month for virtual Windows hosting. We don’t have to beat this to a pulp, but these VDS VPS price points make virtual private server web hosting affordable for anyone. It’s no wonder some consumers refer to Solar VPS as a VDS pro.
