I became suspicious when I was in my WHM (CPanel) and saw that my hard drive was "/dev/vda1". Is this an indication that my server is actually a VM?
EDIT I had raised my concerns to my Account Manager at my hosting company. He assures me that it is a VM, but on a dedicated machine, so I am the only VM on that box. I'll look more into it but would still appreciate any answers to the original question.
