Over the past 7 years, we have offered two different virtualization technologies – Virtuozzo Containers and OpenVZ. We are now offering an innovative virtualization technology called – Linux KVM. Now available at Thexyz to compliment our existing line of Open VZ VPS we have introduced the KVM VPS. This will be replacing our legacy Virtuozzo VPS servers.

What is KVM?

Linux KVM works in a similar way to Virtuozzo and OpenVZ, KVM is a Linux-based virtualization technology whereby a physical server is partitioned into a number of virtual machines, which act independently of each other, albeit sharing the server’s resources at the hardware level. The philosophy of KVM is ‘full virtualization at the hardware level’, which allows for maximum utilization of CPU resources.

Through emulation of actual servers, each VPS can get a dedicated chunk of the server’s CPU and can even have its own OS installed on the server.

The KVM technology has also allowed us to increase disk and network I/O request processing speeds by means of VirtIO paravirtualization. VirtIO is a virtualization standard for disk and network device drivers, which allows high performance to be achieved.

What are the differences between KVM and OpenVZ?

After the launch of the KVM packages, we’ll be performing extensive post-release compatibility testing with other operating configurations.

What about existing VPS servers?

If you currently have a Virtuozzo VPS server, then you will be upgraded to our new KVM line. If you already have an Open VZ VPS, then you can enjoy improved speeds as we have doubled the amount of resources available.

To welcome the arrival of our new VPS line, we have cut the price of $14.95 per month, to just $1 per month for the first 3 months. Don't delay, get your server up and running with latest and greatest for just $1.

We’ll keep you updated on our progress and on the dates on which the extra OS and Control Panel options will be released.

NOTE: We are currently only offering KVM VPS packages in the US data center.

Over the past 2 months we have incrementally introduced a number of new and improved features to Thexyz. Here is a summary of what's new:

Live Chat

We have received many questions regarding our Live Chat over the past few weeks. The short answer is we needed more functionality than the third party chat service could offer. The new chat system can be found on any client portal page like this one.

Client Portal

The recent changes to the client account portal are mainly aesthetic and focused on making the entire client area mobile responsive. We have also reduced the load time on our site pages to ensure they are served to our users as quickly as possible.


We have added support for a number of new languages. Our webmail app supports 14 languages, the client portal supports 26 and our main site has been translated into French, Chinese and Spanish. We are also working to add more languages in the near future.

Billing Improvements

You will notice a few improvements to the invoice format. As well as improved functionality with subscription payments via PayPal.

Dynamic Searching & Pagination

New dynamic interactive tables bring with you page switching without reloads, instant filtering and searching as you type, along with quick filters for getting the information you want more quickly.

2 Factor Authentication

Security has always been of paramount importance here at Thexyz. Recently we 2 Factor Authentication for administrator's and we have also recently added Yubikey authentication for Thexyz Client Portal. Read the full announcement here.

We are always working to improve our product offerings and get a lot of ideas for improvement from the feedback we receive from our users. If you have anything you would like to share, post in our feedback discussion forum or get in touch with your support team.
