What is a VPS?

Per Wikipedia, a VPS (Virtual Private Server) 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.

If you are still unsure what a VPS is, please search good for more detailed information before purchasing. We also recommend reading our whole website before ordering so you are aware of what you are purchasing.
