What is VPS?
VPS is the term which is used to abbreviate Virtual Private Server. This is actually a method which is commonly used in server partitioning. A physical server is partitioned through this method into several servers (as per demand). Every virtually partitioned server has the ability of running (same like the physical server) on its own dedicated terminal.
There can be a full-fledged operating system on each of this virtually created server and you may even reboot each server separately or independently.
1 – Why Choose VPS Hosting Instead of Shared Hosting?
Well, there are multiple significant advantages that one can get through VPS but are not provided through Shared Hosting. Scalability is the most valuable advantage of a VPS as the Memory as well as Hard Drive can be upgraded easily whenever you require. Customization is the second top-value advantage of VPS over Shared Hosting. You can easily customize this virtual server same as a Dedicated Server can be customized, because a virtual server doesn’t share resources. Hosted websites as well s applications over a VPS are more secured and much faster than Shared Hosting.
2 – What Can be Done with VPS?
Any kind of service can be easily managed or hosted from a Virtual Private Server, including (but not limited to) email accounts and website hosting, MS SQL Web Edition, MySQL entry databases or even any other software you want. Every VPS comes with a root access and thus you have full power to control your virtual server as long as the service regulations are followed.
3 – Support with Virtual Private Server
Every Virtual Private Server comes with a full customer support that is provided through email as well as telephone. So, don’t worry about any technical problem as we are always keen in support enquiries.
Difference between Virtualization and Cloud:
“Cloud” is actually defined as a reference which is used for a place or platform of different applications and services. These applications and / or services are actually scalable and are accessed through Internet. These can be specifically made to a particular customer but are hosted as well as maintained by other (third party) provider.
But “Virtualization” is normally defined as a process that is used in creating virtual units. A virtual technology is used to perform this process which includes one or even more than one pieces of hardware. Several areas of current IT infrastructure can apply “Virtualization” in shape of different virtual units like servers, networks, firewalls and storage.
