Virtual Private Hosting
Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting provides all the power and functionality of a dedicated Internet server, but allows customers to consolidate server systems onto a smaller number of physical servers/hardware.
The technology incorporates the idea of virtualising an Enterprise grade platform into multiple virtual server systems. That means a number of VPS environments can function independently (incl. with different Operating Systems) on a single physical system.
These operational and functional benefits come at a price significantly cheaper than an equivalent number of physical servers.
