VPS stands for Virtual Private Server, and it denotes an infrastructure sold as a service by certain companies. A VPS is part of a larger physical server, which is divided multiple virtual servers. Each VPS comes with its own operating system, and customers are given superuser privileges within the server. This allows them to install almost any software that will run on that specific OS. For the most part, a VPS is very similar to a dedicated server, but they are much more affordable than purchasing physical infrastructure. The three major hosting options are shared hosting, dedicated hosting and VPS hosting.
VPS vs. Shared hosting
The main difference between shared hosting and VPS hosting is that you have much more freedom on a VPS server. Both options work by sharing the resources of a physical infrastructure, but due to the virtualised nature of the VPS, users are allotted a small dedicated section of the CPU time and memory. VPS servers also allow for users to have greater control over the OS and software on the server.
VPS vs. Dedicated hosting
With a dedicated hosting option, all of the resources of a server are available to a single user. This option gives the user access to more resources, and complete control over the server environment. However, this comes at a larger price. A dedicated hosting option is not as affordable as a VPS. Businesses will also benefit from the freedom that comes with using a VPS. If you choose a VPS server over other hosting options, you are sure to benefit more at affordable prices.
