Windows VPS hosting refers to hosting software that uses Windows technology. For many users, especially businesses, Windows VPS offers several advantages.

Windows VPS hosting, or virtual server set-ups that use a Windows interface and Windows server management tools, offer their own particular advantages. First, Microsoft has been in the game a long time, which allows it to offer software with a plenty of experience behind it.The company understands what clients want, and it’s had time to root out problematic issues within its framework. For years the company has been pushing considerable amounts of its funds and talent into developing server solutions, and using resources that competing management options have not been able to compete with easily.

The result is not only advanced software, but also a body of guides, tutorials, and customer service options that are all designed to help you understand the system and how you can make the most of it. The commonly used Windows Hyper-V Hosting, available on both 2008 and 2012 Windows hosting systems, is a good example of this.

Windows Hyper-V has an entire webspace devoted to videos and explanations of how to tailor the virtual server to your particular needs. Microsoft also allows companies to use a variety of installs on its system, from Windows 2003 to Windows 2012 and other options, based on what the IT specialists are comfortable with.

Windows VPS also typically comes with some great additional features. These vary between hosts, but because web hosts can rely on Microsoft services and software such as Hyper-V, the company is more willing to offer extra support for it.
