VPS – Virtual Private Servers

A Virtual Private Server, or VPS for short, is a partition of a Dedicated Server that gives users more power and flexibility than Shared Hosting accounts.

Some advantages of Virtual Private Servers:

– Full root access is provided to users of a VPS.
Burstable RAM can be provided during times of high traffic or bandwidth usage.
– The physical server is maintained by the hosting provider.
– Cost is far less than a Dedicated Server and only slightly higher than a quality Shared Hosting account.

Some disadvantages of Virtual Private Servers:

– All server hardware is shared between VPS accounts. This includes processing power, RAM, and disk space.
– Users who are not familiar with server administration may have to purchase a managed VPS, as users are partially responsible for some server-side administration tasks.
