What Exactly are Virtual Private Servers?

The appellation "Virtual Private Server" applies to a virtualization technology, which allows a single physical server machine to be split into a few virtual ones. On a virtual private server, you can operate independently of the others. You can choose an Operating System and, due to the full root privileges you are granted, you can install your own software.

VPS Hosting of Your Choosing

With Tierra Hosting, you can select between OpenVZ & KVM VPS hosting plans. Based on the preferred server virtualization platform, your private virtual server web hosting package will include the SolusVM Admin Panel, which will allow you to reboot your Virtual Private Server at any particular moment, keep track of the resource usage and monitor your traffic stats. Also, with any of the VPS hosting plans offered by Tierra Hosting, you will get the Hepsia Control Panel for free.
