VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a hosting service in which the client is allocated a virtual server with full administrative rights, which make it possible to install any software on the server. Functionally, a virtual server is no different from a physical one (hardware).
Why You Need VPS?
VPS is needed: when you need full control over the operating system; when you need the ability to install your software; when you need a guaranteed level of performance.
You don’t need to use a separate server to host a small website. You can use shared hosting, which is cheaper. However, you can only use the software installed by the provider. And the performance of your site will depend on the load on the shared hosting neighbors.
A Little about Safety And Reliability
VPS server hosting in Cyprus gives you complete control over the system: you manage user accounts, install the required software, configure network interfaces and firewall rules.
All these actions require you to have a certain level of qualification in the field of system administration, and this circumstance applies to both virtual and hardware servers.
However, there are much more tools for quickly restoring a virtual server’s performance than for restoring a hardware one. A new virtual server can be quickly created from a template or cloned from an existing old one.
Both hardware and virtual servers give you the ability to build universal information systems. But virtual, in contrast to “hardware” – allows you to quickly change the computing power in both directions. Just as quickly, you can create new virtual servers in the cloud and delete those that are no longer needed. All this makes your information system, hosted in the cloud, extremely flexible.
