What is a virtual dedicated server?

Occupying the space between the shared and dedicated hosting formats, a virtual dedicated server offers many of the capabilities and features of dedicated servers, including administrator (root) access and dedicated IP addresses, but at a much lower price. Users share a server, but because each virtual dedicated server is effectively isolated from other accounts, the user has full control over the server space. Also, virtual dedicated server plans feature very high performance and available disk space and bandwidth. We partition our servers in such a way that each virtual dedicated server operates almost entirely independently of the other accounts that share the server space. This means that with a virtual dedicated server, you will enjoy consistent, high performance, even when usage peaks on the main server. Virtual dedicated servers are particularly useful for companies and individuals that run higher-traffic websites or complex applications and thus need the bandwidth, consistent performance, and flexibility of a virtual dedicated server.

What can I install on my virtual dedicated server?

You may install any software over the top of the server’s kernel. This includes updating software like Apache and GCC. However, you may not install anything that modifies or upgrades the kernel on your server—this includes operating systems

Are there any restrictions on the content I can keep on my virtual dedicated server?

As long as the material does not violate the regulations listed in the license agreement, you may upload any type of content to your virtual dedicated server account.

How do I install software on my Windows virtual dedicated server?

You may install any software over the top of the server’s kernel. This includes updating software like Apache and GCC. However, you may not install anything that modifies or upgrades the kernel on your server—this includes operating systems.

Are there any restrictions on the content I can keep on my virtual dedicated server?

Some of the information in this article is advanced material we make available as a courtesy. Please be advised that you are responsible for properly following the procedures below. Customer Support cannot assist with these topics.
