    Virtual server is a computer system which is shared by many website owners for their different purposes.A Virtual Server created by partitioning the physical server into multiple mini servers, made possible by the technology of Server Virtualization.

    Using a virtual server, a company or individual with a Web site can not only have their own domain name and IP address, but can administer their own file directories, add email accounts and assign multiple domain names that resolve to a basic domain name without involvement from the ISP(internet service provider), manage their own log and maintain passwords.

    A server, usually a Web server, that shares computer resources with other virtual servers. In this context, the virtual part simply means that it is not a dedicated server-- that is, the entire computer is not dedicated to running the server software.
    Virtual Web servers are a very popular way of providing low-cost web hosting services. Instead of requiring a separate computer for each server, dozens of virtual servers can co-reside on the same computer. In most cases, performance is not affected and each web site behaves as if it is being served by a dedicated server.

    A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service hosting service. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers may have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS.

    A virtual server allows multiple IT web applications, such as websites and applications, to share a single web server. It is the provision for web server hosting services so that the company doesn’t have to buy & maintain its own server connections.
