Default What is VPS hosting

VPS is a term used by internet hosting companies in reference to a virtual machine. The term is used for highlighting that the virtual machine, while running in software on the same physical computer hardware as other users virtual machines, is functionally equivalent to a separate physical computer that is dedicated to that individual user's needs. It has the privacy of a separate physical computer and can be configured to run as a server computer (i.e. to run server software).
In addition to reducing hardware and power expenses, virtualisation allows businesses to run their legacy applications on older versions of an operating system on the same server as newer applications.
Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system and can be independently rebooted.

A virtual private server (VPS), also called a virtual dedicated server (VDS), is a virtual server that appears to the user as a dedicated server but is actually installed on a computer serving multiple Web sites. A single computer can have several VPSs, each one with its own operating system (OS) that runs the hosting software for a particular user.
The hosting software for each VPS can include a Web server program, a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) program, a mail server program and specialized applications for activities such as e-commerce and blogging.

A virtual private server (VPS) is a type of virtual machine that sold as a service through an Internet hosting service. A VPS runs its own copy machine of an operating system, and its customers have superuser-level access to the one operating system instance, so this can install almost any software that runs on that OS.
