Apache Apache is the most popular and powerful web server software available today. All Virtual Private Server HTTP service is provided by a customized version of the Apache Web Server. VPS v3 accounts use Apache 2.x by default, while VPS v2 accounts use Apache 1.3.x.

We have made some modifications to Apache to extend its flexibility and power. Performance enhancements include more efficient handling of HTTP requests, improved protection against process loading, and better error recovery. These improvements have reduced CPU load balances up to three times on many of the Virtual Private Server host machines. That directly translates to better performance from your Virtual Private Server.


Some notable features of your Virtual Private Server HTTP service include the following.


There are a large number of different custom configuration options in Apache. Some basic information and guidlines can be found in our Web Server Configuration section.


Each of these add-ons extend the capabilities of your Virtual Private Server HTTP service.
