What is Virtual Server?
On the internet, a virtual server is a server, that shares computing resources with other virtual servers. In this context, the virtual part implies that it is not a dedicated server, a physical server is partitioned among the multiple server instances that runs their own individual copy of operating system. Using a virtual server, an individual or a company with a website does not only have their own domain name, unique IP addresses, but can administer their own email accounts, file directories, address assignments, assign multiple domain names without involvement from the ISP, and manage their own logs, statistics analysis, and handle passwords. Virtual server is a well-recognized way of providing cost-effective web hosting services.
