What is VPS?

VPS (Virtual Private Server) technology is a service for hosting websites or corporate portals. A virtual server completely emulates a physical server, but it is easier to maintain and much cheaper. Unlike virtual hosting, VPS users enjoy full access to the disk space and server resources allocated to them. The users can independently install any software on the server, add or remove files, run scripts, assign permissions, etc. There are several virtual dedicated servers on the same physical virtualization server, but being located in a completely isolated environment they neither interfere with each other nor use other users' resources.

What is a difference between VPS and VDS?

VPS server (Virtual Private Server) is the same as VDS server (Virtual Dedicated Server). This is the same service, the only difference is in abbreviations and their usage area. The term "VPS-server" is mostly used in the RuNet, while "VDS-server" is in English-speaking area of the Internet.

What is VPS used for?

If the number of a resource visitors exceeds 1000 people/day, or the website content requires more capacity than web hosting can offer, then renting a VPS server is the best solution. Here are a few types of websites for which VPS hosting is the most appropriate option:

  • Online store. Regular hosting may not be suitable for an online store, because often it has high traffic and many pages that requires a lot of computing power. In addition, some specific software is often required for an online store. A regular hosting can not provide it, so buying a VPS server is the best option for an online store.
  • Corporate website. VPS technology provides better information protection for a corporate website by isolating the server from other VMS. You can administer the server without restrictions, install the necessary operating systems, and run all the necessary services.
  • Multilpe projects. Web developers will appreciate this solution since conventional virtual hosting has a restricted number of email addresses, domains, subdomains, and databases, while VPS servers can simultaneously support as many projects as you need.

Hosting or VPS?

Renting a virtual server is the next step after hosting. When a regular web hosting no longer has enough resources to serve your project, the time has come to order a VPS server. This will give you more freedom to configure and use various functions, as well as to install own software.

VPS or a dedicated server?

VPS/VDS server is a full-fledged analog of a physical server, but more money-saving. A virtual server is very similar to a physical one: you can install any operating system on it and configure everything exactly as your project needs. Another advantage is that you are not required to select a physical server with all its characteristics. And if you want more space or resources for your website, you can simply buy an additional VPS server.
