Virtual Private Server
Gigavirt VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers have super user-level access to that operating system instance, so can install almost any software that runs on that OS. For many purposes we are functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server, and being software defined are able to be much more easily created and configured. we are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server, but as we share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSs, the performance may be less, and may depend on the workload of other instances on the same hardware node.
Gigavirt partitions a physical server into multiple virtual servers that each have a protected and reserved amount of CPU and RAM resources. Unlike Shared hosting, VPS instances do not compete against each other for these resources. Therefore, a spike in resource demand among other VPS instances, will not lead to a performance decline in your website or database.
