Up To Faster Servers
Our exclusive Cloudflare Server option offers you the fastest hosting experience!
Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a technologically advanced Web hosting platform. It performs and looks much like a dedicated server but is for people who want a dedicated server without a high price tag. The VPS system partitions a single physical server into several isolated virtual private servers (VPS). A VPS looks and behaves just like a real networked server system, complete with its own set of init scripts, processes, file systems, etc. In addition, you can even backup your entire server.
Each VPS client has full root access, can reboot the server and services, install and upgrade software. Other than with reseller hosting the performance of VPS servers is not effected by any abuse or activity of other reseller accounts and domains elsewhere on the same physical server: minimum resources allocated to your VPS are guaranteed and not shared.
“I really needed to have root access to test out my app, but did not have the cash for a dedicated box. Getting a cheaper VPS server with CentOS was the alternative. And I now keep it for other programming projects. ... No complaints, all running smooth.”
“Our last host wasn't as happy to reply to any questions, and then they were down for maybe two days. Moved to 123WebHost (aka Basic Networks) a year ago. That worked out fine. We often need root access for various updates to our customized shopping card, so we needed a VPS in any case.”
“Had my shopping cart on a shared hosting server before. Was fine, except for certain settings our Merchant Service Provider demanded to be disabled, for security. The guys from 123WebHost helped me setting up the VPS -- well, they did it all for me, and even moved my site and assisted with the security settings. Perrrrrrfect ;) ”

As an acronym for Virtual Private Server, VPS is a type of hosting many businesses and digital publishers move on to after outgrowing their shared hosting plans. It is also referred to as a virtual dedicated server, or VDS Hosting. VPS Server offer increased control and provide you with the ability to perform more advanced functions with your website. Unlike shared hosting, VPS Server space is split up into self-contained units.
In order to gain a better understanding of this popular hosting option, you need to first understand dedicated server hosting and what a VPS actually is. Dedicated servers provide many benefits, such as security, privacy, and a range of dedicated resources. With a dedicated server, there’s no competing with other websites for storage space, bandwidth, and speed. It truly is ideal for dynamic websites or any large enterprise-level site with hundreds or thousands of daily visitors.
A VPS on the other hand, offers a similar hosting environment to a dedicated server, but operates via shared hosting. In other words, you’re still sharing a server with other digital publishers, but you have added privacy and capabilities.
Most novice website owners begin with shared hosting plans. Designed for small sites without the need for a lot of bandwidth and storage space, shared hosting is a popular option for many site owners. However, once your website outgrows the limitations of shared hosting, a VPS will likely be your next step.
A key aspect of VPS internet hosting is its virtualization capabilities. With VPS, the hosting provider divides each physical server into multiple smaller virtual servers with private and dedicated RAM and hard drive space. This provides site owners with a more isolated hosting environment without disruptions from other clients sharing server space.
These added features make VPS internet hosting ideal for small publishers and businesses that want added peace of mind and don’t mind paying for it. If you’re worried about the performance of your site being affected by others on a shared hosting plan, a VPS is definitely the way to go.
Packed with pros and with very few cons, a VPS is a terrific compromise between the affordability of shared hosting and the privacy, security, and (almost the) performance of DEDICATED SERVER. Let’s take a look at some of the pros of a VPS:
In addition to these advantages, VPS web hosting also allows you to modify your operating system just like a dedicated server. How cool is that?
Like anything in life, however, there are a few potential drawbacks to using a VPS as well, such as:
Are you still struggling with the VPS Concept? Try this association to better understand the VPS Web Hosting environment. Try comparing a web server to an apartment building that can be divided up in two ways:
1.) The building can be divided into apartments where each is a smaller, individual home; just as a server can be broken into VPSes that are essentially smaller, individual servers.
2.) Another option is leaving the apartment building as a massive, single home; just like an entire server can be used for a massive, single DEDICATED SERVER account.
