This guide offers an in-depth look at virtual private servers (VPS) and the difference between a virtual private and virtual dedicated server.

"VPS is an innovative technology in which a physical server is partitioned into several segments. Each portion is allocated a specific amount of RAM, CPU time and network bandwidth. Due to the presence of a full-fledged operating system, the divisions can be independently booted. The users are free to customize the applications of their section as per their unique requirements.

"Virtual dedicated server, on the other hand, is scalable, adaptable and economical. As adequate amount of resources are exclusively allocated to you, therefore neither you have to wait nor do you have to indulge in any sort of conflict. In other words, VDS makes you believe that only you are singly using all computing resources. Owing to the sharing of hardware, software and network, the cost of a virtual private server is comparatively lesser than a dedicated server."
