Just a couple of questions about VPS "hosting"
I'm back after some unsuccessful installs with arch linux on my desktop at work. I'm now an everyday linux user.
Thanks for recommendations, arch linux punched me in the face until i learned something.
Now. I'm looking into learning something about VPS.
I have a rackmounted server which i'm going to turn into virtual machines.
To the questions:
What is the common term for everything VPS?
Please fill in "... for dummies"
What free alternatives are there with great documentation?
From start, what kind of software do i need to install on the server in order to virtualise and manage the virtual servers?
Are there respective terms for virtualising and managing this kind of systems?
Thats all i can think of for now, i hope my questions are easy to answer.
