What is a VPS

What Is a Virtual Private Server?

First, let’s define what VPS actually stands for —  virtual private server.

In layman’s terms, a server is a powerful computer that stores all of the

data and files that make up your website. When someone types your

domain name into their web browser, that powerful computer “serves up”

your website to the searcher’s screen. Now for the virtual aspect: VPS

uses virtualization technology to split that one powerful server we just talked

about into multiple virtual servers. Think of it this way: it’s one piece of

physical hardware that functions like several separate servers. The word 

private means just what it implies. Your virtual server is reserved for

you, so you won’t have to share RAM, CPU, or any data with other users.
