What Is VDS / VPS Hosting
According to Wikipedia Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) or Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a method of partitioning a physical server computer into multiple servers that each has the appearance and capabilities of running on its own dedicated machine. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system, and each server can be independently rebooted. The practice of partitioning a single server so that it appears as multiple servers has long been common practice in mainframe computers, but has seen a resurgence lately with the development of virtualization software and technologies for other architectures.
As flexible as a dedicated server
With VPS systems users share the system resources — such as the CPU and memory — but, unlike a shared platform, where you are a virtual host on a shared hardware server, the file systems are fully partitioned meaning only you have access to it! This provides the flexibility to customise your ‘server’ to your needs, adding modules and installing software for your specific requirements.
Partitioning a single hardware server into multiple servers has been around for a long time. In fact, mainframe computers have long been partitioned into multiples. By sharing the resources you are able to get far more ‘bang’ for your proverbial ‘buck’.
