VPS is a virtual private server running on a physical server and fully simulating its operation.
VPS is usually understood as the service of providing a client with a virtual dedicated server for a certain period of time, on which the client is a full administrator, has the right to install any software and operating system. Several virtual servers can simultaneously work on each physical server, each of which is independent and belongs to an individual client.
How Does VPS Work?
For the user, working on a virtual server with similar physical specifications is no different from working on a physical server. Administration of the VPS and the real server is completely identical: working with the file system and applications, server software, operating systems on the virtual server is exactly the same as on the physical one.
On VPS, you can run an unlimited number of web projects, databases, user mailboxes, any financial and accounting software, development environment, CRM, etc.
The difference between the VPS and the real server is that several virtual servers are running on the same physical server at the same time, while the real server is a separate computer. Nevertheless, virtual servers operate independently of each other, therefore, any failures in the operation of one VPS do not affect the operation of the “neighboring” one.
