virtual private server (VPS)

A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service.

A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so can install almost any software that runs on that OS. For many purposes they are functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server, and being software defined are able to be much more easily created and configured. They are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server, but as they share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSs, the performance may be less, and may depend on the workload of other instances on the same hardware node.

What is VPS?

DreamHost partitions a physical server into multiple virtual servers that each have a protected and reserved amount of CPU and RAM resources. Unlike Shared hosting, VPS instances do not compete against each other for these resources. Therefore, a spike in resource demand among other VPS instances, will not lead to a performance decline in your website or database.

Who uses VPS Hosting?

VPS Hosting is a good fit for businesses or users who are experiencing rapid growth, heavy website traffic, or running complex applications.

Hosting

Many companies offer virtual private server hosting or virtual dedicated server hosting as an extension for web hosting services. There are several challenges to consider when licensing proprietary software in multi-tenant virtual environments.

With unmanaged or self managed hosting, the customer is left to administer his own server instance.

  • Flexible

    Scale up your performance as your website grows. Linux-VServer allows you to quickly scale vertically with no need to reboot. Add another virtual server instance in seconds (e.g. a low-resource VPS for chat).

  • Reduced Costs

    Only pay for the server performance you plan on needing. Dial in your CPU/RAM requirements and avoid paying for resources that you will not use.

  • No Overage Fees

    Bandwidth and disk capacity for your site are both unlimited! There is no need to worry about getting hit with surprise overage fees.
