What is VDSnow virtual server?
Virtual server hosting is one of the web hosting types which allows to split a single dedicated server into several virtual servers, each will share the underlying physical hardware but have its own operating system, software combination, amount to CPU cores, RAM and SSD space. Virtual server runs its own copy of an operating system allows you to configure eveything you need just like it was an expensive dedicated server.
The main advantages of a virtual server is that you can install any operating system, any software, deploy an unlimited number of websites, databases, etc at the same time. Such solutions in most cases are much more profitable and easy-to-use compared to dedicated servers.

Many VDS hosting providers offer fixed service plans only, so it often happens the service plan includes too many much SSD disk space but too little memory, or vice versa. With us, the exact amount of resources (such as CPU cores, RAM, SSD space, bandwidth) can be choosen during the checkout process and then be changed any moment you like via our customer portal automatically.
The amount of resources can be changed any moment you like, both in a smaller and a large scale. The SSD disk space can only be increased.
Please note that the price for RAM depends on the amount purchased, thus a more powerful virtual server will be a bit more expensive.
