The KVM model is a bit more expensive than the OPENVZ model, but the performance is much higher.

  • Storage KVMKVM Storage uses HDD disk, 1Gbps bandwidth, characterized by large hard disk space, data center available only in Bulgarian.

  • Dedicated server:  A Dedicated Server is a single tenant service, meaning that the resources are solely dedicated to you. Actually, choosing this type of server means renting the physical hardware, rather than virtual resources as with VPS offerings.
