Virtual Private Servers

Virtual Private Servers.

What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?

A Virtual Private Server or VPS is in all respects a server except that it is only a 'part' of a whole server.
A single high specification server can host multiple Virtual Servers which will allow each VPS to share the available resources such as CPU or Memory.
A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system which allows you full administrator access to install and remove programs as you wish.
Each virtual server has its own private section of the main servers hard drive allowing you to store your data safely.

Why use a Virtual Private Server?

A VPS gives you the freedom to have your own server on the internet, but a you are sharing some of the resources with other Virtual Servers on the same physical host the overall cost is reduced.
If you have outgrown a shared hosting platform and now think its time that your site was on its own server then a VPS could be the best place to start as you can built your own webserver with eMail services and database.
You are able to control your own security. From the firewall to virus checking its all up to you.

Whats the downside?
