“VPS” stands for virtual private server, and means a virtual software instance running within a physical computer server. A virtual private server works like a dedicated physical server but relies on a virtualized software engine referred to as a “hypervisor” to provide the interface between the physical server and the virtual instance (aka “vps”).
Why do I want a VPS?
By choosing a “VPS” you are using a sliver of a physical dedicated server, which means lower costs, because you are only utilizing a piece of the physical capacities of the underlying server. Additionally, VPS plans often provide easy migration from location to location and server to server along with being able to upgrade or downgrade your resources with only a few clicks (rather than having to change physical server components).
