A virtual private server (VPS) is capable of hosting a business website, a database-driven online store, or a corporate intranet. Many companies use virtual private servers as dedicated mail servers or development platforms.
Other uses of a VPS include: reselling hosting services, offsite data storage, web-based CRM, groupware, managed email services, and more.
Virtual Private Servers are the most advanced step in server virtualization technology. They are used to partition a single physical server into many (as many as 1000) isolated virtual private servers.

Why you should consider a Switchover to a VPS?
Each virtual private server looks and behaves exactly like a real networked server system, complete with its own set of init scripts, users, processes, filesystems, etc.
Virtual Private Servers are fully managed with a complete management package. This includes hardware management, network management, operating system and software support, proactive security patches and updates, proactive monitoring, firewall, spam prevention, server hardening, and more.
All VPS accounts run the latest release of CentOS Linux 5 and include full root access, cPanel/WHM, Virtuozzo Power Panel, and access to Grove.
Clients can seamlessly upgrade between VPS and Hybrid Dedicated plans, making them an excellent option for less intensive sites which are beginning to grow and seasonal sites which require more or fewer resources at different times of the year.
