What is Virtual Hosting?

Virtual hosting is a method for hosting multiple domain names (with separate handling of each name) on a single server (or pool of servers).

This allows one server to share its resources, such as memory and processor cycles, without requiring all services provided to use the same host name. This is often used for shared web hosting as many customers can be hosted on single server, making it a cost effective solution. 

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is the next step up from shared web hosting, offering the power and configurability of a dedicated server, but without any hardware issues to worry about. We have powerful physical servers partitioned into isolated virtual servers - each of them looks and behaves like a real networked server system.

If you need the performance of a dedicated server, flexibility to scale your server to suit your business needs and redundancy to give you peace of mind, then a Freeparking Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) is the answer!
