A Virtual Private Server (VPS), also known as Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS),
is a virtual server that appears to the user as a dedicated server, but is
actually installed on a computer serving multiple websites. A single
computer can have several VPSs, each one with its own operating system
(OS) that runs the hosting software for a particular user.
The hosting software for each VPS can include a Web server program, a File
Transfer Protocol (FTP) program, a mail server program and specialized
applications for activities such as e-commerce and blogging.
What is a Virtual Private Server?
How does VPS work?
The mechanism behind working of a VPS hosting works is very simple. The
Virtual Private Server (VPS) is considered as a section off space which is
present on the actual server. Virtual Private Servers (VPS) is a technology
that permits you to share the server costs with all other users, and still gives
you the total command over your applications. Virtual Private Servers works
as isolated processes within a Web Server, and provide complete root
access in privacy along with the ability for guaranteed bandwidth, disk
space and CPU.
In a VPS hosting situation, the actual host company will split their own
server and offer services to other clients; here clients can be more than one
in number. In order to make a secure VPS host, the provider simply creates
partitions inside the server which gives the customers of the company an
access to his portions of the server only. While at the customer’s end, virtual
private servers of the program appears to be the dedicated servers.
Those who use the service cannot see the past virtual partitions in order to
access other customers’ services. Also, all websites are stored on the
server and are seen as being on the same host, yet they are completely
separated and different from one another. VPS servers provide you with the
highest level of security which is exactly like a dedicated server, complete
with customizable firewall protection and it also secures isolated disk
Wide Scope of VPS Hosting
Virtual Private Servers (VPS) are basically designed for all those
customers who look for more control than what they get in a shared web
hosting account, but who are yet not ready for a fully dedicated server. All
these private servers mainly include root access, a full-featured control
panel, guaranteed resources and also complete web hosting technical
support. It can be very useful for web design and also business related to
Ecommerce. Virtual web hosting is now widely used in companies who
deal with providing low cost website hosting for their clients. The vast
majority of the web hosting services worldwide is now hosted on shared
servers which basically use virtual hosting technology.
