Xen for Virtual Private Server environment

Xen is really good for running Virtual Private Servers with root access and dedicated RAM. It’s a true virtualization platform that offers multiple local root servers on one physical server hardware. With XEN VPS you get your own virtual server with fully dedicated memory (RAM), process list, file system and a share of central hardware CPU.

Xen Virtual Private Server is perfect for sites that require custom software installation, or even custom daemon configuration that can’t be run on a shared server. Plus, VPS offers better security because you have your own file system that is not shared with other web sites.

However, VPS is a like a small dedicated server – you will probably need skills to manage it. I suggest you read some Linux books and on-line manuals to get familiar with it, otherwise someone may compromise your VPS.
