Virtual Private Server

When we are about to choose the web hosting service, usually we will see the list of the features and some many briefing there. Today I'll bring the topic for Virtual Private Server. The web hosting provider used to advertise "Get your virtual private server now!" and gave such bundle of advantages by using them.

Before you choose the service let me give you the brief on what the virtual private server is.

A virtual private server (VPS, is also known as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) 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.

Well, so far we do know what the virtual private server is. But, what the exact advantage on us if we are using the VPS feature as our web hosting account?

Let us take a look on the usage of the VPS. The virtual private server bring the gap between the shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting service, giving the independence for the customer for their software terms but also give the less cost compare the physical private server.

The VPS is not about cutting the cost only to the customers but they give the customers have the superuser-level access to the operating system, and could install any software that could run within the OS. For the beginner, I think you should consider on this part since sometimes our internet connection gives some ban for the web hosting account. Thus, if we do have this feature we could install some software to pass by the ban.

I hope this article could help you a lot out there. Have a nice day!!

There are several Web Hosting Services in the locality but only few can be trusted. A good provider must be high in quality, high in performance, high-availability and cost effective.
