VPS stands for a Virtual Private Server. A virtual private server is a method of partitioning a physical server computer into multiple servers such that each has the appearance and capabilities of running on its own dedicated machine. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system, and each server can be independently rebooted.
Why choose a VPS instead of Shared Hosting?
A VPS offers significant advantaged over Shared Hosting. The main ones are scalability as you can upgrade your Hard Drive and Memory as you require, and customization in that you can customize your VPS in the same way that you can with a Dedicated Server. Because resources are not shared, hosted applications or websites are much faster as well as more secured. Also VPS servers are very affordable and cheap in prices so if you are having a shared hosting account or a Reseller account and don’t want to go for dedicated server then VPS server is the best option and is also cheap and affordable.
