What are Virtual Servers?
Unlike dedicated servers, a virtual server is a server which shares its hardware and software resources with other servers, operating systems and software. Virtual servers have the same functions as dedicated servers.
However, while dedicated servers require physical presence for each new server, multiple virtual servers can exist on the same computing machine.
Virtual servers maintain independent functionality, partitioned into virtual server environments often for the purposes of web hosting.
Internet service providers will assign different domain names, IP addresses, security measures, file directories, logs and analytics for each virtual server, isolating each virtual machine from the others present on the same physical machine.
Because they are cost-effective and provide more agile resource control, virtual servers are popular as web hosting solutions.
