How does it work?
Special server software divides one physical dedicated server into multiple virtual servers (VPSs). VPSs have their own operating system and can be installed independently from each other. Therefore they function just like multiple, small, dedicated servers.
A VPS is the ideal solution to discover the simplicity of a virtual server and host, say, multiple websites. We offer two types of virtual server, with Plesk, or with Debian (without Plesk). Our product pages show extended product information and give you a great overview of the possibilities.
The Virtuozzo software splits one dedicated server into multiple virtual servers. In this way, a virtual server optimizes the use of system resources - using the minimum when at rest, with the option to boost when you need maximum performance. The dedicated servers of Flexservers contain the best available hardware, and are optimized for intensive, heavy use. A dedicated server set up to contain multiple virtual servers is called a hardware node.
The virtual servers function as dedicated servers; they have their own operating system and can be installed and managed independently of each other. With a VPS you can install software independently from other VPS users. At server level you can use your own configuration and adjust all user rights as you please.
A Flexserver virtual server (both Plesk and Debian) gives you the freedom to divide your disk space among your or your customers' websites. You can create your own hosting plans, POP boxes, databases and FTP users without limitations; a great advantage compared with shared hosting packages. The only limitations are the maximum number of domains, monthly traffic and available disk space.
For each virtual server, Flexservers guarantees several hardware performances. Details about this are included in our product overviews of VPS Plesk and VPS Debian.
Plesk control panel
Your virtual server has root access, and can be equipped with Plesk. Plesk is a control panel that allows you to manage your VPS. Using Plesk does not require professional system management knowledge - a basic knowledge of Linux management is sufficient. Want to know more about Plesk? See our special Plesk pages.
