A Virtual Private Server (VPS) dedicates a “Virtual Server” to you and only you. With this, you are in complete control of what is installed and operational on your server. This can be used as a remote fiel server, a backup server, a gaming server and many other options. You can even add and resell web and e-mail hosting if you so desire, turning this cost center into a profit generating business.
To build a VPS, we set aside a part of our physical server(s) strictly for your purposes, using Xen to make it think it is an entire computer (called virtualization). This “computer” can have one of many different operating systems on it, and can be configured completely to your needs. We dedicate one CPU (brain), 1 Gigabyte of Memory, and 50 Gigabytes of disk space. With 1Mb/s 95 percentile, you can transfer approximately 300 Gigabytes of data each month without incurring additional charges.
