Virtual Dedicated Server
Also known as Virtual Private Server. Virtualization technology such as Xen, Virtuozzo/Plesk, UserModeLinux, ?LinuxVserver or VMWare is used to run several virtual servers on a single server. These are cheaper than dedicated servers and fully functional, but are not as powerful.
[http://www.budgetdedicated.com/ budgetdedicated.com]:, Debian 3.1 or unstable and Ubuntu, Xen virtualization technology

Xen, ?LinuxVserver and UML are Open Source products. VMWare and Virtuozzo are commerical virtualization systems. Overall, Xen has the highest performance because it does not allow memory over-selling, like with UML or Virtuozzo. So Xen VPS' are usually more expensive, but performance fluctuates less. Xen has also been benchmarked as the fastest virtualization technology. Xen is in many cases limited to Linux and some BSD variants, but will not run Windows without special chip extentions. Most Xen providers only offer Linux. Virtuozzo providers often provide MS(tm) Windows(tm) and Linux. ?LinuxVserver is not a complete virtualization solution, as all vservers run under a common kernel, so it is faster and easier to implement.
What these services provide you with is essentially a user account, except it is on a machine hosted on fast networks at a professional data center managed by professional system administrators. Typically, you share your user account with other users on the same machine and are given a set amount of resources (bandwidth, disk space, CPU minutes) that you are permitted to use. Providers can offer shells (SSH access), website hosting, e-mail hosting, DNS hosting, and more.
[http://www.dreamhost.com/ Dreamhost]: Web, mail, DNS, Jabber, SSH/SFTP; lots of bandwidth and disk space
[http://www.contextshift.co.uk/ Contextshift.co.uk]: Web, mail, and Shells. Uk based.
[http://rhombic.net/ Rhombic Networks]: Website & e-mail shared hosting.
[http://hcoop.net/ HCoop]: the Internet Hosting Cooperative. Web, mail, ssh, jabber, shell, other services
