A VPS stands for “Virtual Private Server.” Let's break it down: as the name suggests, it is a private server, which means, that it will be exclusively yours. Having a VPS service gives you a set amount of resources that you don’t need to share with anyone. It’s kind of like having your very own dedicated or private server, but virtual.
In this case, “virtual” means that it is a partition on a physical server, that is dedicated to you. This virtual server gives you the chance to gain root access, install your preferred OS and work on your project with unparalleled freedom.
We take care of the back-end business, manage the physical servers, guarantee speed, uptime, and stability, while you can focus entirely on your project.
The two services are similar, but there are some fundamental differences. A VPS server will let you create multiple instances on a single dedicated server. While a VDS or Virtual Dedicated Server will do the same, but take up the entirety of the dedicated server.
Virtual Private Server hosting is the perfect price-power option for large projects as it grants large amounts of dedicated resources and the most control while being infinitely cheaper than having your own physical dedicated server.
Cloud computing is a method of using resources through a network of interlinked remote servers rather than a single, dedicated machine. Cloud computing takes advantage of the high-speed internet and by using sophisticated software, can compute various demanding applications with great efficiency. This kind of computing can manage, process and store data as a regular server. There are several significant benefits that cloud computing provides: it is incredibly flexible, seamlessly scalable, resilient and stable and allows smooth migration.
There are a few things that make VPS hosting the best option for specific projects. In short: if you need a lot of resources and unparalleled stability - VPS hosting is for you, but the actual answer is a little bit longer.
First of all, VPS hosting gives you dedicated resources. That means you don’t need to share your CPU power, RAM or disk space. You have an allocated amount that you control at your will, entirely.
The nature of virtual server hosting guarantees stability. Since all the resources are carefully managed and allocated to the users, you can rest easy knowing that any periods of high usage will not impact your server stability.
Lastly, arguably the most significant advantage of VPS hosting comes at the highest price. You get root access and unparalleled control of the resources granted. That means that you can install a wide range of operating systems, work on resource-heavy projects and do much more, than with shared hosting. But sadly, the customer support team will only help you with questions relating to VPS hosting management and other back-end related queries.
