Virtualization technology is the backbone of VPS Hosting and Cloud Hosting Services. Mainly there are the following major types of Server Hardware Virtualization.

Full Virtualization – In this type, the main physical server is fully simulated so that it supports software and applications to work in a similar manner on the virtualized partition as they work on a separate server.

Partial Virtualization – In this type of virtualization technique a selective part of the physical server is simulated and there can be some modification required in installed software and application for running on the virtual part of the server.

Paravirtualization – In this type of virtualization no hardware part is simulated but the software and programs are executed in a specific manner to work for their own websites.

The web hosting services provider decides which type of virtualization may suit which of its clients and according to it may provide the services.
