What is VPS Hosting?

VPS hosting is a Virtual Private Server, and is a virtualized server. A VPS hosting environment mimics a dedicated server within a shared hosting environment. It is technically both shared hosting and dedicated hosting.

What are the benefits of VPS Hosting?
VPS hosting gives you the affordability of shared hosting while at the same time giving you more power and control like a dedicated server.

Privacy
As you don’t share your OS with anyone else, there are no other websites on your server that potentially have access to your files.

Customization
With a VPS Server, you have your own Operating System. This also means that you have your own instances of all server applications such as Apache, PHP, and MySQL. If you need to have any of these services customized, you can make changes to suit the server to your needs.

Control
If you’re installing server applications that require a system restart, you can do so at any time. Even though technically you share a server with other VPS servers, your VPS server can be restarted without affecting anyone else.

Dedicated Resources
On a VPS Server, you have dedicated amounts of RAM available to you at any time. Unlike shared hosting, there is no one else on your server that can use utilize all the RAM when you need it most!
