    Question Whats the Different of VPS Hosting / Dedicated Server?

    Whats the Different of VPS Hosting / Dedicated Server?

    Is VPS hosting from or within dedicated server?

    Do I need softwares to setup hosting for VPS/Dedicated Server? I have not seen every VPS packages but at RegisterFly, Its offering VPS with softwares included and abilities to resell hosting. Is that the type of regular webhosting reseller or an owner of the server & allowing me to sell reseller accounts?

    I'm not sure but it sounded like VPS is or similar to Dedicated Server.

    VPS is a shared part of a dedicated server. You split the memory/HD, etc. No, you do not need any type of software, if you purchase from the right website they will have it all for you. You can sell reseller accounts through a VPS, yes.

    VPS is like a number of virtual dedicated servers located at one machine. Except that you do not have to worry much about the hardware and general performance is it just like a dedicated server which means that you need to install an OS and you might also want a control panel such as cPanel.

    So lets me get this straight.. VPS included all softwares like WHM, cPanel, Linux, Mail system, etc... just like owning reseller account?

    Does VPS allow WHM (<- if included) to transfer accounts?

    Yes, the VPS will act just like a dedicated server does.

    wackohostingcom, vps and dedicated server share majority of features:

    1. Root access and dedicated file storage. That means your files, databases, processes, and user accounts are totally private and can be accessed only by you.

    2. You can install your and run own softwares in VPS.

    3. You can control your own VPS remotely via telnet or remote desktop.

    4. Also like dedicated server, VPS is assigned with unique IP addresses, so the outsiders cannot tell the different whether your server is VPS or dedicated.

    However there's certain limitation for VPS:

    1. For Windows VPS, some of your VPS group and user policies are overridden. Changes to overridden policies will not take effect. E.g. you may be not allowed to change the logoff duration for inactive terminal session.

    2. You are not allowed to login interactively or physically in "console mode"--you're always logged into "terminal mode". Some softwares, like most remote admin softwares, require user to login interactively .
