Why Virtual

Virtual hosting -- sometimes called VPSes (Virtual Private Servers) in the hosting industry -- delivers the power and control of a dedicated server, but at a fraction of the price.  To create a VPS, we take a powerful physical server and carve it up into a small number of virtual servers (also called "nodes").  The exact number of virtual servers per physical server is limited to ensure that each user gets dependable performance.  The end result is a powerful, flexible, affordable hosting environment.

Small and medium businesses love virtual servers because they provide a sensible, economical solution to modern IT needs.  From hosting the company email system to deploying a unified point-of-sale system, VPSes deliver far more power and control than a traditional web hosting environment.  And as your IT needs change, it's easy to add or remove virtual servers on demand.  There's no ordering process or equipment recapitalization -- just one click and your infrastructure is updated.

Developers and designers love virtual servers because they provide a powerful, secure environment in which to build, test, and deploy projects.  The added horsepower and bandwidth of our VPSes allow developers to host clients as part of their paid package -- a powerful value-added incentive.  And because you have near-total control over the VPS, you can pick and choose what operating system and OS components best suit your needs and the needs of your clients.

Casual webmasters love virtual servers because they enable content-rich, CMS-intensive websites.  Whether you're hosting a single high-traffic WordPress site or a number of different CMSes simultaneously, a VPS delivers far more power and control than a traditional web hosting account.

Fresh Roasted Hosting currently offers three types of virtual servers:

  • OpenVZ is arguably the most popular virtualization in use for Linux environments.  It's fast and economical.  If you don't have any preference, OpenVZ is an all-around great virtualization platform.
  • Xen is a slightly more refined virtualization platform, perfect for critical and memory-intensive (such as Java) applications.  Xen can easily virtualize a Windows environment.
  • KVM is an emerging virtualization platform that's included by default in newer Linux kernels.  Performance is fiercely debated, but is generally considered to be almost identical to Xen - if not slightly faster.
