Virtual Web Hosting
Virtual Hosting Plans and Solutions
Virtual web hosting, sometimes called shared web hosting, is the most common and economical type of hosting plan. Virtual hosting, the process of running multiple "virtual" servers on a single host computer, enables one computer to host hundreds of independent web sites. Web sites literally share resources, applications, and an operating system environment with many other web sites on the same server computer.
This type of web hosting is popular among commercial web hosting service providers, who appreciate the manageability and efficiency of virtual web hosting. Many virtual web hosting applications use virtual DNS resolution, which associates each domain name with its corresponding virtual web server. Virtual DNS resolution is compatible with both name-based and IP-based virtual hosting techniques. But there are drawbacks to this type of hosting. With this hosting configuration, compromises to a single web site can affect the performance and security of other sites on the server.
Another type of virtual web hosting uses VPS or Virtual Private Server technology, in which a web server computer is divided into multiple isolated environments. Each web site runs in its own environment with its own server software. As with a dedicated server, each VPS has its own independent operating system with its own web server, mail server, and independent software instances. VPS offers a greater degree of control than basic virtual hosting, and often features multiple domain name support.
