We’ve been offering VPS Hosting for quite some time now. We like to give our customers options for when it comes to hosting and that’s why we offer a wide array of hosting solutions, virtual private servers being one of them. However, not a lot of customers know what a VPS is and/or how it works. I’ll try to clear that up and try to make some sense out of it for you.
So what exactly is VPS Hosting?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and is essentially a server within a larger host server, often called a hardware node. What we’re able to do is take a server with lots of resources (CPU, Memory, Disk Space, etc) and slice it down to smaller servers through virtualization technology. The smaller servers or VPS’ look and feel the same as a dedicated server except that they are residing on hardware that is shared with other VPS’.
