Virtual Dedicated Server FAQs

If you still have unanswered questions, please reach out to us and we’ll be happy to assist.

What is a Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS)?

A Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) is a type of hosting service where a physical server is divided into multiple virtual servers, each of which functions as a separate, dedicated server environment.

Unlike shared hosting, where resources are shared between all users on a server, each VDS has its own set of resources (CPU, RAM, storage, etc.) that it does not share with others. This leads to better performance and stability.

VDS users also have root access, which means they can install their own software and customize their server environment.

Why do I need a VDS?
A VDS can provide several benefits, depending on your needs. Here are a few reasons you might consider a VDS:
  • Performance: Since each VDS has its own dedicated resources, you don't have to worry about other users on the same server using up too much CPU or RAM and slowing down your website or application.
  • Control: With a VDS, you have root access, so you can install your own software and customize your server environment to meet your specific needs.
  • Scalability: A VDS can be easily upgraded or downgraded as your needs change. This makes it a flexible option if you're not sure how much server power you'll need in the future.
  • Security: Because each VDS is isolated from the others on the same physical server, it's harder for a security issue in one virtual server to affect the others.
What's the difference between a VPS and a VDS?

The terms Virtual Private Server (VPS) and Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) are often used interchangeably in the hosting industry. However, there can be nuanced differences in their use.

Both VPS and VDS involve the division of a physical server into multiple virtual servers. The key distinction typically lies in the allocation and management of resources.

With a VPS, although you have your own isolated environment, the resources such as CPU and RAM are still part of a shared pool. In certain instances, if other users are experiencing high traffic or usage, it might impact the availability of resources for your VPS.

On the other hand, a VDS, as the name suggests, is like having your own dedicated server. Each VDS is allocated its own set of resources (CPU, RAM, etc.) that are exclusively for its use, regardless of the activity or demands on other servers. This setup ensures consistent performance and higher stability.

Can I order a custom VDS?
If you don't find a suitable VDS package on our website, please contact us so we can offer you a custom solution to your exact requirements.
Can I upgrade/downgrade my plan?
Yes, simply log in to the client area, choose the product and select upgrade/downgrade. Upgrades will be processed immediately, downgrades at the end of the month.
Which operating systems can I use on my VDS?

The choice of operating system on your VDS often depends on your specific needs, the software you plan to run, and your comfort level with the operating system.

We offer a range of popular Linux distributions, such as Debian, Ubuntu, and AlmaLinux.

On the other hand, Windows Server is also commonly available for those looking for a more familiar, GUI-based environment, or who need to run software that specifically requires a Windows operating system.

When selecting an OS, it's important to consider the software requirements of your project, your security needs, and your own familiarity with the system's management and operations.
