What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?

Bt the use of virtualization, physical servers can be partitioned into multiple (virtual) servers where each virtual server is fully independent of each other. Virtual Servers run their own operating systems which means that each system can be administered independently.

Virtual private servers also have their own operating system, applications and data which are all isolated from all other data that resides on the physical server. A Virtual Private Server can enable you to leverage the benefits of dedicated servers at a fraction of the cost.
