Elastic Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a virtual machine, that in many aspects is a functional equivalent of a separate physical computer, and is dedicated to the individual customer's needs. It has the privacy of a separate physical computer and can be configured to run any desired server software.
A VPS is a relatively cheap web hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support big apps like web stores or huge corporate websites. Ensuring simple administration, it becomes the preferred choice for both inexperienced users and competent users. VPS servers at Jelastic are delivered with the full root access granted to their owners, which gives the ability to take full control over the server. Herewith, each given user account is insulated from the remaining ones, so each VPS server can be restarted and configured independently from others.
The Jelastic VPS hosting platform operates on high quality CentOS-based and Windows VPS servers (the last option is available starting with the Jelastic 3.1 version, more info can be found within the corresponding document). CentOS stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System, and our fully featured CentOS VPS stack provides users with an isolated and secure environment for their web applications.
Now, let’s reveal how to get your own CentOS VPS with full root access at Jelastic PaaS.
