What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?
Simply stated, it's a server that runs within another server!
Here's how it works. In a VPS system, a powerful computer server is divided into separate and independently functioning units, or Virtual Private Servers. These VPS servers are then made available for small businesses, developers, network administrators or others -- to access for a small monthly fee.
Each VPS customer gets their own secure disk space, bandwidth, file system and process space, without sharing CPU load or applications with any other user on the VPS system.
And the best part about a VPS? You get root access to securely manage your private server, just as you would with a dedicated server -- but at a fraction of the cost!
What can you do with a VPS?
The functions of a VPS will vary depending upon your needs. Here are just a few things you can do with a VPS-based web site:
- Host your own e-commerce web site
- Support a corporate intranet
- Host a custom development environment
- Run web-based calendaring
- Run multimedia applications
- Host an online game site
- Manage an email system
- Create a customer support tracking system
- Backup important data
- Handle employee scheduling
