Free Virtual Private Server Solution

FreeVPS is a free Linux-based software implementing virtual servers technology, a cost-effective and resource-saving solution that runs virtually isolated full-featured standalone Linux servers on one host box.

FreeVPS is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

To ensure complete isolation of virtual servers, each is given a certain portion of the filesystem, a separate root directory where all its processes run restricted from other virtual servers, and own virtual network connections.

FreeVPS is fully integrated with H-Sphere, an automated scalable web hosting software.  H-Sphere provides an easy-to-use web interface to manage VPS configuration and hosting facilities.
