VPS hosting is also called as Virtual Private Server hosting. In VPS hosting actual physical server gets virtually partitioned into multiple isolated virtual servers. So, technically you can say it is the combination of shared hosting as well as dedicated hosting.
Basically, to have a website on the internet, you need to have all the necessary website files on a web server. Setting up and managing a server is not only a tedious task but expensive too. When you prefer VPS hosting to use as a dedicated hosting then you rent an entire server. This is generally for the websites that receive huge traffic to their website or need to set up their server in a highly specific way. On the contrary, in shared hosting rather than renting an entire server, you can only share a portion of the server with other users.
In VPS hosting, the technology used is similar to that of VMware or Virtual Box. In that, you can run several virtualized operating systems on one machine. For e.g. if you’re working in Windows 7 environment then at the same time you can run Windows XP or Linux without restarting your computer. The major advantage of VPS Hosting is that you can easily host multiple websites, forums, databases and blogs individually on one specific server. You also get a good choice of a control panel with VPS hosting such as cPanel, Plesk, Webuzo, Softaculous, etc. All the listed control panels provide you simple and user-friendly environment and therefore, even novices can easily work with the same.
