Virtual hosting

A virtual host manages multiple servers simultaneously.his system relies on virtual DNS resolution which permits specific domain names to be assigned to each web server. So, a single computer can then host many independent web sites. Virtual web hosting is either name based or IP based and allows a great degree of manageability, efficiency, and scalability of the infrastructure.
 
Virtual hosting is efficient in setting up your own web server.In "virtual" hosting, resources are not shared with other web sites. Each website is assigned fixed amounts of available resources. So, a single site cannot utilize disproportionately all the resources.
 
Virtual Server has its own operating system,hosting server,segment of disk space and in some cases specific hard drives on the server.So it remain unaffected by server crash or other technical problems by other sites.
 
Do your research well and find the near to perfect virtual host. Be sure to check referrals and blogs as well as forums for complaints.
 
Read all the fine print thoroughly and ask any questions you may have before signing up. Most virtual hosting providers offer back ups of your site, technical support, e-mail addresses, a web based GUI for you to manage your settings, and a e-commerce path that will allow shopping carts and customer support as well as loyalty programs.
 
Once terms and conditions are agreed upon, the hosting company will give you a login name and password, an IP address for your site, and the name of the "private directory" that is assigned to you. This is where you will upload your pages.
 
Register your domain name and be sure to ensure that the DNS record specifies the DNS server of the virtual hosting company. If your site is already registered then complete the required formalities to change the DNS records with your registrar.
 
Upload the pages to the virtual hosting directory.
Test the site after 3-4 days using the IP address. Once the DNS propagates across the web you will be able to access your site using its domain.
 
Virtual webhosting costs much lower than the cost of running a dedicated server and therefore the ideal choice for a small to mid sized web site that has outgrown shared hosting.
