A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. The virtual dedicated server (VDS) has also a similar meaning.
A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system (OS), and customers may have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS. For many purposes they are functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server, and being software-defined, are able to be much more easily created and configured. They are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server.
All above Virtual Private Servers include:
- At least 1 IPv4 address.
- Full Root/SSH Access Included
- TUN/TAP and PPP Supported
Difference between OpenVZ and a OpenVZ/Pool
A OpenVZ/Pool means you got an administrator login to create VPS containers yourself. The maximum amount of containers depends on the amount of vCPU's. Thus;
If you order a VPS/Pool with 4 vCPU's, you are able to create up to 4 VPS Containers and assign the amount of memory, storage etc. to the VPS's yourself. In certain cases it's also possible to choose different locations for each VPS - depending on the provider you choose.
What is the difference between KVM and OpenVZ?
KVM is true virtualization where the VPS operates as its own server, independently of the host node. OpenVZ is a container style of virtualization which relies on the host node's kernel. KVM has no restrictions in terms of functionality, but it has more overhead than OpenVZ. OpenVZ is constrained by the host node kernel, but it has less overhead in the containers themselves. KVM is generally more stable than OpenVZ.
KVM VPSs are not dedicated environments. Both virtualizations share host CPU and network port among all VPSs. Only our VDSs include dedicated CPU.
Am I able to run Windows?
In case you choose KVM, yes. Windows cannot be run on OpenVZ containers.
Is IPv6 offered?
Some providers do offer IPv6 addresses or even subnets. In certain cases they dont. we'd suggest using tunnelbroker.net
in case you would like to add IPv6 to your VPS.
For people using KVM
- Request a /64 subnet.
- Choose one of the mentioned Operating System and follow the steps to configure your VPS Box.
- Follow the steps as explained/shown in our tutorial
