Virtual private servers (VPS) are a relatively new form of web hosting that is quickly growing in popularity. A virtual private server is created by partitioning a physical server into multiple virtual environments, so that each has its own operating system, disc space, and bandwidth.
A VPS is a great middle ground, which provides the control and resources of a dedicated server at a significantly lower price. Additional benefits to VPS hosting are:
- Customizable memory and bandwidth depending on your site’s needs, which can be scaled up if needed
- Included SSL certificate for added security
- Full control over your virtual server
- No risk of other sites on a shared server impacting your site’s performance
