A Virtual Private Server is a virtualized server which mimics a dedicated server within a shared hosting environment. A VPS relies on a virtualization platform which creates Virtual Machines (VM) and has its own set of resources and operating system.
Multiple Websites can be hosted on a single Virtual Private Server Critical data which is hosted on a VPS is backed up in regular intervals to keep a website’s data safe.
One of the important features of a Virtual Private Server is that it keeps a website stable when it is hosted on VPS due to dedicated resources at all times. VPS is also a good option for e-commerce websites because it can easily support resource scaling while peak traffic.
Virtual Private Server environment provides the benefits of a dedicated server, but at comparatively lesser and affordable price. In other words, it can also be described as a technique of partitioning a single physical server into many virtual servers. Within the VPS environment, a physical server node is split into multiple virtual servers, thereby distributing the costs evenly among all users, while each virtual server gets the same functions as a complete dedicated server.
