Virtual Colocated Server

A virtual server is ideal for customers who don't need the full resources of a dedicated server at all times. Most colocated servers spend the vast majority of their processing time sitting idle, with a virtual server the processing power is shared between all users so other people's idle time is available to you if you have a load spike. This makes a virtual server ideally suitable to "bursty" applications, where the server spends a lot of time idle but maybe a couple of hours a day under heavy load, the virtual server gives you access to high performance hardware at an affordable price just when you need it.
