A virtual private server (VPS) is a software-based, virtual operating system that runs within a parent server and employs virtualization technology to provide dedicated resources to other virtual servers. VPS hosting allows multiple companies to use isolated instances on the same host or parent server. This type of hosting provides numerous benefits, such as allowing you to access your VPS environments from anywhere, have allocated bandwidth and storage for each instance, and get more bandwidth and storage than a hosting company that’s limited on the number of instances they can create on each parent server.
VPS hosting is typically used for smaller workloads that need consistent performance, such as hosting 1-10 websites, storing company and customer files in a way accessible anywhere in the world, hosting web servers, hosting email, and databases. Additionally, VPS hosting can be used to deliver cloud-based services for customers, virtual workstations to remote employees, and many other things.
The benefits of VPS hosting are numerous, with reliable performance, easy scalability, good value for the money, data protection, control, security, and customization being some of the most important ones. VPS hosting environments are isolated from each other, making them more secure than shared hosting environments.
Private VPS Parent hosting is a type of hosting that gives you the benefits of virtualization without sharing a parent server with other companies. This type of hosting allows you to have sole control over a built-to-order parent server and its resources, not be charged for the individual environments but rather for the parent server as a whole, and easily shuffle your instances around between private VPS parent servers or to one of our public cloud VPS parent servers.
VPS hosting is secure, with each instance’s isolation from the other environments on the server providing an extra layer of protection. On the other hand, shared hosting environments are more vulnerable to vulnerabilities that can bring down other companies’ data and websites hosted on that server.
