When a single server is divided into many independent units for hosting different websites, it is called virtual private server or VPS in short. Compared to a dedicated hosting option, virtual servers are cheap and better than shared hosting on many aspects. Here the single server is partitioned and each partition holds the operating system, disk space, bandwidth and other resources so that client’s website is independently hosted on each partition as a dedicated server. This means that the account holder can manage everything including starting and rebooting of the machine independently.

The Working of Virtual Private ServerWeb hosting companies use virtualization software to separate a dedicated server into different virtual servers. Each client is given access to the partition allocated to him and the guaranteed services include root access, disk space, bandwidth, control panel and technical support. The services are permanent and cannot be taken away as in a shared hosting.
How VPS Hosting Differs from Shared or Dedicated HostingOn a VPS server, the websites do not suffer from performance issues. Shared hosting is cheap but unable to support a website having very high traffic. A dedicated server is not required in all cases and the cost of a dedicated server is comparatively high than any other types of web hosting. Everything can be customized in VPS hosting but it is not possible in a shared hosting.
