Real Time uses Xen virtualization system -- which is a proven and state of the art in virtual hosting. With Xen, allocated server resources such as CPU and RAM are designated to you instead of shared with other Virtual Servers. This makes server performance more reliable.
In essence, a Virtual server provides root level access and/or a customized hosting solution without requiring a physically dedicated server.
Your virtual server has the following options as far as Linux distributions:
Since you can have root access, any additional updates, maintenance or configuration changes can be made by you as well. Real Time does not have a setup fee for our stock configurations.
With a Virtual Server, the final server specs are more flexible then most shared hosting plans. A Virtual Server gives you access to a functionally equivalent and dedicated server without having to purchase a stand-alone server. Hardware specs such as RAM and Disk space can be customized to your exact needs.
