(also vhost, virtual hosting, virtual server)
A hosting service provider that specializes in virtual infrastructure solutions such as virtual servers, computers, storage, and other hybrid platforms that enable the hosting of applications, data, and/or services. It encompasses everything from the underlying network architecture to the technologies and service models that enable people and businesses to outsource their computing infrastructure needs. A virtual hosting platform can be shared by multiple users or can be set aside for a specific app, website, or customer. In a shared virtual host platform, two or more subscribers share the physical server’s storage and processing power. Each host is given a set amount of resources, which can be increased or decreased depending on the provider and the infrastructure.
