What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS?)
A virtual private server (sometimes referred to as a VPS or Virtual Server) is a physical server that has been partitioned into multiple servers that each operate as if they were their own dedicated machine. Each VPS can be independently re-booted and the virtualisation software allows each virtual server to run its own copy of the operating system with superuser-level access to install and run almost any application.
