    I was shopping for a VPS, looking for xserver.eu when I came across xservers.eu who offer the VDS. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with xservers and or running SB, SeNuke etc on a VDS. This is what I'm looking at:

    xserver: http://xsserver.eu/windows-vps.html
    xservers: http://xservers.eu/virtual-servers-vps-hosting.php

    Your comments and opinions would be appreciated. I'm trying to get something set up asap. Thanks in advance.

    This is what I found so far:
    Im just wondering if there is any truth to the performance benefits or is it just clever marketing. Particularly interested in hearing from someone who has actual experience using the VDS.

    i thought both are the same. or are you talking about semi dedicated when you say vds? you have a specific amount of resources allocated to a vps, but when using a semi dedicated you share a server with a few others and can only hope that they respect the fair usage policy of the dc.

    A dedicated server is a piece of hardware dedicated to you only.

    VPS is a virtual machine on existing on a piece of hardware hosting multiple machines (edit: operating systems).
