Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are a type of web hosting that gives you many of the features of dedicated hardware (such as security, isolation, & customization) without the extra cost. Each server is typically shared by anywhere from 5 to 15 other customers, which allows for more efficient use of data center resources. VPS/VMs are configured using advanced virtualization software and can be scaled with variable system resources in real-time. Each VPS customer is given root access to their own virtual portion of the server with a unique password, login name, IP address, & web server stack installation.
VPS hosting plans include a dedicated amount of RAM memory and CPU cores as well as a fixed amount of SSD/HDD storage and monthly bandwidth. Customers can reboot the VPS instance without impacting other users on the same shared hardware. VPS hosting is ideal for medium-sized websites, ecommerce stores, or CMS scripts that need extra power or platform stack customization that isn’t always available on shared servers by default. Cloud VPS plans have optimized hardware & software environments for better overall performance speeds in website hosting operations.
