VPS management

From ISPWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

A virtual private server (VPS, also referred to as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) is a method of partitioning a physical server into multiple servers. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system that runs the hosting software for a particular user. A single computer can have several VPSs, each one with its own operating system (OS) that runs the hosting software for a particular user.

The VPS management module allows you to use wide range of functions to manage the VPS services. The customer can order new virtual private servers, edit configuration of existing ones, switch to VDSmanager or ISPmanager and perform other operations.
