VPS or virtual private server is a dedicated and secure space that you get on a server that is also shared by other clients of a web host. The catch is that every client is virtually dissociated from other clients and can set up own applications, software and operating system in the server he/she sees as being solely dedicated to them. The systematic segregation ensures minimum transfer of vulnerabilities and security risks from one account to another as is much more likely in a shared environment. The best VPS hosting would ideally give you the experience of using dedicated hosting for your website at a fraction of the cost.
The nuts and bolts
A number of factors determine the nature of service you will get in VPS hosting. The specifications of the hardware such as storage, RAM, bandwidth, CPU etc. are critical. The best VPS server hosting providers ensure that you get the allocated resources as per your package details. The number of VPS account holders on the host server has direct effect on the kind of speed and performance your own website. Also important is the virtualization technology deployed.
VPS is customizable making it much more flexible than shared hosting. Root access and control over reboots, IP assignments and switching between operating systems gives firms a channel to adapt and modify their website as per need. Only those applications which violate usage policy are not allowed to be installed. The expenditure is considerably less while enterprises do not have to spend on personnel and infrastructure or physical servers.
