    The technology used behind VPS hosting is similar to that of VMware or Virtual Box. These programs allow you to run several virtualized operating systems on one machine. For example, your desktop may be running Windows 7, but you can also run other operating systems such as Windows 7 or XP without needing to restart your computer.

      In VPS a virtual server exists within a physical server, providing you with a personal SPACE together with the other sites on that server. The virtual private server works on its own operating system, apart from that upon which the physical server runs. Your site is still on a shared server, the virtual private settings provides you some of the benefits of a dedicated server.

        VPS means a Virtual Private Server.

        With VPS, you will have Full Root Access to your server with dedicated resources. You can also install third party applications/software, modules and more at root level. Apart from your website and applications you can access your email using POP3, IMAP, SMTP and the web.

          With a VPS you can control your own unique file system and CGI-BIN, disk space, system resources, bandwidth and memory allotments.
