Usually VPS in the computing world stands for Virtual Private Server. So, what is the intent of your comment "leave them"?

VPS is cheaper version of dedicated server but is actually installed on a computer serving multiple Web sites.

A combination of physical hardware by a host operating & sharing of a physical server with virtual scaling is VPS (Virtual Private Server). However, there are three kinds of hosting such as Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting & Dedicated Server Hosting.

VPS servers provide the benefits of sharing hosting, while at the same time, it provides with more control & power like dedicated servers. With it, one possesses your own operating system & server applications such as PHP and Apache. Have a look, what you'll get from VPS:


  • Unlimited Websites & Root access gives the ability to install & use any software.
  • Ease of hosting allied services such as FTP server, mail server, etc.
  • Ease of fetching backup & data storage


Maintenance & installation has to be done by the virtual server owner.

At long last, if you have a great idea, but don't have an idea in order to reach out using the web, then VPS is the solution.

VPS hosting is a Virtual Private Server, and is a virtualized server. A VPS hosting environment mimics a dedicated server within a shared hosting environment. It is technically both shared hosting and dedicated hosting.

VPS Hosting is one of several types of web hosting accounts you can choose from to host your website online. To have a website on the internet, you need to have your website files on a web server. Setting up and managing a server can not only be expensive, but difficult too. Purchasing web hosting allows someone to rent space on a web server, making it easier for the average person to have host a website online because all they need to do is upload their site files (no server setup is needed on their part).

VPS (Virutal Private Servers) is an old technology people have been using it, but nowadays Cloud Servers & Dedicated Servers are very faster and cost effectively than VPS Servers.

It is a virtual private server that the user perceives as a dedicated/private server even though it is installed on a physical computer running multiple operating systems.

It is a type of hosting where, your website gets hosted on a shared server, but still the dedicated hosting resources like memory, storage space, bandwidth, etc will be provided to your website.

That means you won't need to share hosting resources with other users. VPS is basically a combination of shared and dedicated hosting, that means, in a shared environment, you get a dedicated type of hosting.

That's why the cost of VPS hosting is more than shared hosting but less than dedicated hosting.

VPS means Virtual Private Server
Hosting providers logically create many virtual servers on one physical and distribute it to their clients. It is called VPS Hosting.

Benefits of using VPS:

  • You don't have to share resources(disk space, RAM) with others.
  • Traffic and activities of other VPS customers will not be affected in your operation on the same server.
  • You have the privilege to choose the operating system and software you want to install on the server.
  • With the VPS account, you will get root access so that you have complete control of configurations.
  • You can handle all actions with the interface of your control panel application.
  • Many hosting providers provide managed VPS hosting services so that their clients can do administrative tasks.

Virtual Private Server hosting often abbreviated as VPS hosting works as a bridge between dedicated server hosting and shared server hosting. Typically, the primary server is segregated into different private servers, and every VPS hosting has its individual operating system and own resources and functions as a complete server.
