What is VPS Hosting ?
VPS hosting is a type of web hosting that uses Virtual Private Servers. The VPS allows the user to have a website which is fully independent and control it as if each is a separate real machine. How does VPS work?
To explain better how VPS works, let’s try to visualise. Each virtual server, on the machine is like a room in a house. You can install any software you like or restart your own room without affecting the house, which is in fact a physical server, much like how you can renovate your own room without affecting the other residents of the house.
On a shared hosting server, problems with one website might cause the entire server to go down, causing all of the other websites on that server to go down with it. This would not happen on a VPS machine because only the problematic cluster would go down, but the other containers would be unaffected.
Similarly, some high traffic websites in a shared hosting environment may utilize all of the server's resources and “clog” it, thus causing other websites on that server to be unreachable. This would not happen on a VPS server as each cluster may only use the resources that are allocated to it.
Why use VPS Hosting?
VPS is great as it slips in nicely and bridges the gap between shared hosting and dedicated hosting services. VPS will give you the independence and flexibility of a dedicated hosting service, but at the price of a high-end shared hosting service.
For users whose websites have outgrown their shared hosting service but can't quite afford a dedicated server, or don’t want to, VPS hosting may be the best solution.
The user gets full control and /root access of his cluster and all the hardware is dedicated to him to use at any time, no matter the load of the other clusters.
