|Linux OS Choice|
Xen VPS Hosting Features
The features which differentiate Xen from the OpenVZ platform include:
- Greater Control: Having a Xen VPS will provide you with full access to different file system types, swap space, and iptables - if you are a power user who is comfortable with Linux administration, this is the VPS solution you have been looking for.
- Popular Operating Systems: Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, and Fedora OS templates are available for use with your Xen VPS.
- Control Panel Licensing: WHM / cPanel licensing is available on Xen.
Xen VPS Considerations
We highly recommend that you consider the ways in which a Xen VPS differs from OpenVZ if you are switching platforms:
Customization versus Raw Performance: Xen's hypervisor will provide you with more options to configure your virtual private server's kernel, however, this functionality will have a higher cost of resources than the OpenVZ platform.
Swap Space versus Storage Space: Each Xen VPS is configured with swap space equivalent to twice the guaranteed RAM available with its hosting plan. Swap space allocation will have a minor effect on the amount of disk space available for regular file storage.
Backup Administration: System backups for Xen VPS accounts are self-managed - you will be in charge of your backup schedule.
