From inside a UML, it looks like a regular PC connected to the internet. From outside the server, ditto. I'm not sure what it looks like from the server console, but I guess it's something like that. The virtual server I admin at Bytemark is actually faster than my home PC for a lot of things (especially as it's connected to a 100Mb/s pipe). The limiting factor seems to be Disk IO. If you need to host multiple SSL enabled websites then you can get more IP addresses.
