Linux-VPS

VPS Hosting is an ideal option between shared hosting and dedicated servers. VPS plans can be completely customized to match your specific hosting needs and upgraded anytime as your site grows. It's a great way to start small but still have the ability to scale up very quickly. We do not offer low end VPS servers which really do not provide enough resources to make anyone happy.

Virtual Private Server hosting has become very popular for it provides the customers the facility of hosting their site on an exclusively private server, irrespective of the other websites on the same server. It is as if the client controls the server individually and can configure it as per their own needs and requirements to the extent of customized software and rebooting remotely.

Description


Virtual private server (VPS) is a marketing term used by Internet hosting services to refer to a virtual machine for use exclusively by an individual customer of the service. The term is used to emphasize that the virtual machine, although running in software on the same physical computer as other customers' virtual machines, is functionally equivalent to a separate physical computer, is dedicated to the individual customer's needs, has the privacy of a separate physical computer, and can be configured to run as a server computer (i.e. to run server software). The term Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS is used less often for the same concept.

Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system and can be independently rebooted.

History:
Xen originated as a research project at the University of Cambridge, led by Ian Pratt, senior lecturer at Cambridge and founder of XenSource, Inc. This company now supports the development of the open source project and also sells enterprise versions of the software. The first public release of Xen occurred in 2003. Citrix Systems acquired XenSource, Inc in October 2007 and subsequently renamed Xensource's products under the Citrix brand:
XenExpress became "XenServer Express Edition" and "XenServer OEM Edition" (embedded hypervisor)
XenServer became "XenServer Standard Edition"
XenEnterprise became "XenServer Enterprise Edition"

Subsequently the product lines have been renamed XenServer (Free), Essentials for XenServer Enterprise, and Essentials for XenServer Platinum.

On 22 October 2007, Citrix Systems completed its acquisition of XenSource, and the Xen project moved to http://www.xen.org/. This move had started some time previously, and made public the existence of the Xen Project Advisory Board (Xen AB), which had members from Citrix, IBM, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Novell, Red Hat, Sun Microsystems and Oracle. The Xen AB charter assigns it oversight of the project's code-management procedures, and with development of a new trademark policy for the Xen mark, which Citrix intends to freely license to all vendors and projects that implement the Xen hypervisor; the Xen AB will have sole responsibility for the requirements of licensing.

Virtual private server (VPS) is a marketing term used by Internet hosting services to refer to a virtual machine for use exclusively by an individual customer of the service. The term is used to emphasize that the virtual machine, although running in software on the same physical computer as other customers' virtual machines, is functionally equivalent to a separate physical computer, is dedicated to the individual customer's needs, has the privacy of a separate physical computer, and can be configured to run as a server computer (i.e. to run server software). The term Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS is used less often for the same concept.

Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system and can be independently rebooted.

OverView:
The physical server typically runs a hypervisor which is tasked with creating, destroying, and managing the resources of "guest" operating systems, or virtual machines. These guest operating systems are allocated a share of resources of the physical server, typically in a manner in which the guest is not aware of any other physical resources save for those allocated to it by the hypervisor.

In a fully virtualized environment, the guest is presented with an emulated or virtualized set of hardware and is unaware that this hardware is not strictly physical. The hypervisor in this case must translate, map, and convert requests from the guest system into the appropriate resource requests on the host, resulting in significant overhead. Almost all systems can be virtualized using this method, as it requires no modification of the operating system, however a CPU supporting virtualization is required for most hypervisors that perform full virtualization.

In a paravirtualized environment, the guest is aware of the hypervisor and interfaces directly with the host system's resources, with the hypervisor implementing real-time access control and resource allocation. This results in near-native performance since the guest sees the same hardware as the host and can thus communicate with it natively. UNIX-like systems, such as Linux, some variants of BSD, Plan9, and OpenSolaris are currently known to support this method of virtualization. However, installing operating systems as paravirtualized guests tends to require more knowledge about the operating system in order to have it use special hypervisor-aware kernels and devices.

Some examples of paravirtualization-capable hypervisors are Xen, Virtuozzo, Vserver, and OpenVZ. Paravirtualization was the reason we selected Citrix XenServer as our choice as it does offer near-native performance for VPS.

Options


You can either have CentOS 64 bit or CentOS 32 bit installed as the base OS. If you wish we can leave it as a generic install with WebMin installed as the base or nothing at all if you prefer. We can also install VirtualMin for you as a complete hosting control panel.

VirtualMin not only offers simple web site and FTP setup it also has a huge list of application script installers for a very large list of updated applications.

Each additional dedicated IP will cost an additional $2.00 per month if they are required.
