VPS (Virtual Private Server) web hosting is a type of hosting service that allows customers to have their own dedicated virtual server. This is a more advanced and flexible option compared to shared hosting, where multiple websites share the same server resources.
With VPS hosting, each customer gets their own virtual server with a specified amount of RAM, CPU, and storage. The customer has complete control over their virtual server, including the ability to install their own software, configure their server settings, and reboot the server.
VPS hosting is well-suited for websites that receive a moderate to high amount of traffic, or for websites that require specific software or configurations that are not available with shared hosting. It is also a good option for businesses or individuals who want more control over their server and hosting environment.
VPS hosting typically costs more than shared hosting, but it is still more affordable than dedicated hosting, where a customer rents an entire physical server. VPS hosting is a good middle ground for businesses or individuals who want more control and flexibility than shared hosting, but do not want to invest in a dedicated server.
It’s worth mentioning that VPS hosting can be further divided into two types: managed VPS and unmanaged VPS. A managed VPS plan is when the hosting provider takes care of the server’s maintenance and management, while an unmanaged VPS plan requires the customer to handle the server’s maintenance and management themselves.
