What is a VPS?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server.
A VPS is a type of server that makes use of Virtualization technology to split physical server hardware into several ‘virtual’ servers hosted on the same physical infrastructure.
Whereas in the past system administrators were traditionally confined to using one physical server for one purpose only, virtualization offers the flexibility to host several servers on one physical server. Each server can have it’s own purpose and it’s own distinct operating system.
