VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated server in terms of administration since you receive complete root access with a possibility to reboot the VPS web server remotely. The VPS hosting shares system resources with other virtual servers that are hosted on the same physical machine. This results in a quite inexpensive price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually closer to shared website hosting packages in terms of pricing.

Types of VPS Hosting

Just as any other web hosting type, Virtual Servers may vary depending on different features, but the Operating System is perchance the most perceptible distinction. Here are the 2 most essential varieties:

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller actually purchases whole VPS hosting plans to sell them to the clients rather than offering shared web hosting accounts on one single private virtual server. It is considered more remunerative but also requests more introductory payments to purchase the private virtual hosting server.
