Which VPS hosting plan to choose between a managed VPS and unmanaged VPS? Generally speaking, unmanaged VPS hosting is less expensive than managed VPS hosting when you compare plans that have the same allocated resources. One of the main reason is that your hosting provider offers less support on unmanaged VPS, thus they charge less for the service. If you are well-versed in VPS hosting and you have a lot of time planed for the VPS server, you can go for a unmanaged VPS. Otherwise, you should get a managed VPS. Some of the tech issues you may need to know if you choose unmanaged VPS include but not limited to: VPS security, software update and patching, LAMP server configuration (linux, apache, mysq, php), DNS configuration, control panel setup, SSL certificates creation, website setup, server backup, etc.

That’s a download from TechNet from Microsoft that I have this ISO file from so go ahead and open that one and then I’ll just start the install in here. And there are only a few things I will need to do to actually get this fully installed. Oh during this install process and it’s fine I want to install it now. Until you install the VirtualBox additions in here the mouse can be a little sluggish especially if you’re on a remote desktop environment but I just want to see my 40 gig hard drive. Just click Next and now it’s expanding the windows files the first percent here takes a little longer. The total process of installing windows in here is probably going to be six-seven minutes in total but I going to remove some of this recording here.

Partitioning a single server to appear as multiple servers has been increasingly common on microcomputers since the launch of VMware ESX Server in 2001. The physical server typically runs a hypervisor which is tasked with creating, releasing, and managing the resources of "guest" operating systems, or virtual machines. These guest operating systems are allocated a share of resources of the physical server, typically in a manner in which the guest is not aware of any other physical resources save for those allocated to it by the hypervisor. As a VPS runs its own copy of its operating system, customers have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, and can install almost any software that runs on the OS; however, due to the number of virtualization clients typically running on a single machine, a VPS generally has limited processor time, RAM, and disk space.[2]
