VPS is short for a virtual private server. VPS hosting is one of the most popular hosting services for your website. It uses virtualization technology to provide you with dedicated (private) resources on a server with multiple users.
VPS hosting is more secure and stable compared to shared hosting, where you do not get the dedicated server space. Although this solution is smaller and cheaper than renting a separate dedicated server.
VPS hosting is usually chosen by website owners who have average traffic indicators that exceed shared hosting restrictions, but do not yet require the resources of a separate dedicated server.
A server is a computer on which you store files and databases of your website. When your online visitors want to enter the site, their browser sends a request to your server and in response it sends the necessary files via the Internet. VPS hosting provides you with a virtual server that emulates a real server, although in reality the computer is divided between several users.
Using virtualization technology, your hosting provider installs a virtual layer on top of your server’s operating system (OS). This level divides the server into parts and allows each user to install their own OS and programs.
Therefore, a virtual private server (VPS) is both virtual and private, since you have full control. It is separated from other server users at the OS level. By the way, VPS technologies are similar to creating partitions on your own computer when you want to run more than one OS (for example, Windows and Linux) without rebooting.
