What are VPSs?
If you are running a resource-requiring website with an ever-increasing number of viewers, hits and file downloads, but cannot afford a dedicated server to handle the expanded load.
The VPS Hosting Service Described
A VPS (Virtual Private Server) ensures an isolated hosting environment whereby the entire amount of CPU, RAM memory, hard disk storage space and traffic resources is allotted to you exclusively – as if you were hosted on a dedicated web server.
You can pick an Operating System and install your own software configurations (you obtain complete root access). What's more, you can restart your VPS server at any time, keep track of the resource consumption and check your traffic stats in real time.
