VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. When you take a server and part it
into smaller independent servers where each of these smaller server runs
on its own operating system and private environment but shares the same
hardware Ė thatís what we called as VPS. A VPS is a hosting environment
that combines both benefits of shared and dedicated hosting. It looks,
feels, and acts like a dedicated server; but it cost a fraction of the
cost of a dedicated hosting package.
Who can get VPS?
VPS is most suitable for website owners that need an isolated hosting
environment (for safety and performance purpose) and special hosting
features (such as custom firewalls, SSH access, dedicated IP addresses).
What can I do with a VPS?
You can host any services you like from your VPS, including web hosting
and email accounts; install entry databases running on MySQL or MS SQL Web
Edition or your own software. You will have root access to your VPS so
there's no limit to what you can run, as long as it doesn't violate our
terms of service.
Advantages of VPS
Each private server has its unique file system and gets a guaranteed
fraction of the serverís disk space, CPU power, bandwidth, and memory.
Hence, a website hosted on a VPS runs on an isolated environment where its
performance will not be affected by other websites. Also, a VPS does not
share web application and services with other websites thus it eliminates
the risk of downtime or hacks due to otherís mistakes.
VPS users get full root access. This allows server customization Ė you get
to install your own software/application and manage your server as you
would on a dedicated server.
VPS is cheap. Youíll get features like dedicated servers but cost a lot
more cheaper (in most of the case, 50% less) than a dedicated hosting
plan. You can compare the pricing different between a dedicated server and
VPS hosting below.
VPS Vs Dedicated Server:
