What is Virtual Private Server hosting and what are the benefits?
VPS hosting gives you root access to your server, dedicated resources and an isolated hosting environment, so there are no other sites sharing your resources.
That means that, even though there may be multiple virtual machines on the same physical server, you are in an isolated environment with dedicated resources (RAM, Storage) and virtually allocated CPUs that no one else can touch. Plus, with root access, you can make technical changes that would not be allowed on a shared hosting plan. You get the advanced performance, control and flexibility usually reserved for dedicated servers, but at a much lower price.
