What is VPS

What is it about?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. This unique and powerful technology by its nature is partitioning a physical server into multiple Virtual Servers having the appearance and capacity of a real dedicated server. This is possible thanks to XEN and its XEN Hypervisor technology - a software layer that stands between the server's hardware and the OS. Each Virtual Server can run under its own operating system (Windows, Linux, BSD, CentOS or Solaris), have custom configurations like Firewall, kernel etc of its own. We offer our VPS's with pre-defined Debian OS which we recommend to be used with our Easy VPS Control Panel (the shared hosting like Panel).

? The Virtual Servers we offer are powered by XEN hypervisor technology - a thin software layer inserted between the server's hardware and the operating system. Allows each physical server to run more than one "virtual server", effectively decoupling the operating system and its applications from the underlying physical server. Each Virtual Server can run under its own operating system (Windows, Linux, BSD, CentOS or Solaris) or have custom configurations of its own.
