 » What is a VPS?

A Virtual Private Server is a mix between a dedicated server and a shared hosting account. With a Virtual Private Server you still share system resources like the CPU and memory with other users but the file system is setup in such a way that you cannot tell the system has anyone else on it; it acts like a dedicated server. The CPU, Memory, and other resources are usually setup in such a way that each person is only allowed to use a certain percent of them so your resources are always available to you. This means that there is not one person, like can happen on a shared system, using all the resources all the time. Since the resources are setup in such a way that each person can only use so much of them, your site will be more consistent because it will always have the same amount of access to the CPU, memory.
