What is VPS?

VPS is a virtual private server and virtual dedicated server as similar, VPS runs its own OS and has its own hardware configuration. VPS has higher popularity more than shared hosting because VPS does not have any restriction, you can run any software without a limit of 24X7.

How VPS Works?

VPS hosting uses a parent server to host multiple virtual servers that are separated from each other. Using software called a hypervisor, the hosting company implements a virtual layer on top of the operating system to segment the virtual servers. The separation between virtual walls allows each user to install their own OS and software, creating a server that’s truly private, separated from others.
