In a shared hosting plan, businesses cannot control many of the options on their virtual machine. The partition does not have its own operating system or computing resources, limiting its potential and forcing the tenant into specific regulations. In a VPS server, HosterMonster reports, businesses can function independently.
This is possible because a VPS server gives a business a partition that has been completely severed from its physical machine. As a result, it essentially acts like a dedicated server.
Therefore, the report said users get their own operating system, dedicated processing resources and a constant allotment of RAM to ensure consistent performance.
As a result, the report said businesses using a virtual private server are completely independent from other tenants on the same physical device. This leaves them free to customize their server and distribute resources within the plan based on their specific needs.
According to a recent Web Hosting Geeks report, a VPS is essentialy a middle-ground between shared and dedicated servers. They are less expensive than dedicated plans, and significantly more powerful than shared servers. Furthermore, VPS hosting plans offer many of the same performance benefits of dedicated servers.
