What is a Virtual Private Server?

Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are a type of server that gives the user the most flexibility and access to advanced features that you won’t find on Shared Hosting. It also has a tendency to have more performance than shared hosting as you have a set amount of resources allocated especially for you. As long as your VPS is configured properly you should have no problem building most large-scale web applications.

Each virtual server is capable of running independently with other virtual servers on the same physical server. This prevents your virtual server from being affected by others on the same box. Essentially, virtual servers provide the equivalent to having a separate physical computer.

They can be ran on both Windows and Linux and provide a great deal of flexibility. It’s also typical for virtual servers to have room to grow. This means that your site can grow with your server instead of having to move to a completely new server.
