virtual server

When a domain is hosted on a virtual server, it means that it shares that server with other domains. This is a very cost effective way of hosting web sites, but access speeds are not as high as for domains hosted on dedicated servers.
Also see virtual domain.

visitor

The term is sometimes confused with unique visitor. The difference is that one unique visitor visiting a site repeatedly over a period of time will show up on the site's log file as many visitors. The term therefore refers to the number of times people visit a site - not the actual number of people visiting a site.

vortal

The term is used to describe portals that focus on one specific (vertical) topic. In other words, they target at a specific group of people - like programmers, SEO specialists etc. - by providing in-depth information on that topic.
