There are essentially two types of hosting solutions available: Virtual Hosting and
Virtual Servers. In a Virtual Hosting environment, you are simply
"sub-letting" software resources controlled and maintained by someone else. The
software (web, ftp, email) is configured and customized by the Virtual Hosting Provider.
Virtual Servers vs Virtual Hosting There are
essentially two types of hosting solutions available: Virtual Hosting and Virtual Servers.
Though the terms seem similar, the underlying functionality of the two solutions is very
different. Your Internet site is very likely an integral part of your business, therefore
understanding the differences between Virtual Hosting and Virtual Servers can have a

and customized at the discretion of the client.
In contrast, a true Virtual Server environment gives you full access to the software
resources and affords you complete flexibility, control, and power over how your Internet
