What is the difference between Virtual-Dedicated and Dedicated servers?

Our Virtual-Dedicated and Dedicated servers are the same hardware and configuration, with the only difference being that Dedicated servers are for your sole use only and Virtual-Dedicated servers are shared with up to two other customers.

Although Virtual-Dedicated servers are shared we do try and allocate servers so that customers use the same servers for different purposes. However this may not always be possible and there is a small chance of another customer using the same server at the same time and for the same purpose. If you want to be certain that you are the only customer using that server at any moment in time for any purpose then Dedicated is the way to go.
