    VPS vs dedicated server

    Ultimately what is the difference between virtual private server and dedicated server?

    Hi amir55,
    I must say that I like the analogy you used to explain the difference between shared hosting, VPS and dedicated.

    I found it quite amusing but very understandable for someone that is not familiar with the differences.

    VPS:
    VPS stands for virtual private server (VPS), also called a virtual dedicated server (VDS). The virtual server is act like a dedicated server for a single user but is actually installed on a computer serving multiple Web sites.The VPS alternative is often chosen by small businesses that need a customized Web site but cannot afford a dedicated server. Another useful of VPS technology is the ability of a single customer to maintain multiple virtual servers. Finally,VPS means one server can share among them multiple user.

    Dedicated server:
    Dedicated server means that it is dedicated to the one client and it is not shared with any other client.Dedicated servers usually allow for the customer to choose what operating system is installed on it and what type of hardware are they used.Dedicated hosting server where you can find reliable options and minimize the response time for the user requests.

    I also get a dedicated server from this site xxx for my Internationalized business. Here they offered linux based web hosting.

    I was about to say this is the best explanation of VPS vs Dedicated Server, but it's a spammer and a quick Google search of the words shows up all over the place...

    It's just the text that's been spammed all over and would usually have a spam URL in the signature. Looks like they forgot to add it this time

    Virtual Private server means that you can have more than one virtual server account on the same physical machine, yet it acts as if the dedicated server is yours. It depends on a dedicated server, but there may be other 4 or 5 VPSs on that same server. With VPS you are basically sharing the resources of a single dedicated between all of the VPSs hosted on it. So, depending on your needs a VPS may be better, because they are reasonably priced as compared to a dedicated server, or a Dedicated server might be better, because it is completely yours and there are no other root users.
