Hi, VPS server means Virtual private server, so its not physical computer but virtual server inside physical server. VPS is created by server software like Virtuozzo from Paralells i think and an IP is assigned to it and it has own disk quota where is installed new operating system like Linux Cent-OS so its independent and can be sold as another server. Thats what i think.

Just like to add.

VPS uses virtual server instead of physical server. These virtual servers are still in the physical server called Hypervisor. Hypervisor is managed and configured to create these Virtual server using cPanel.

Hi :)

VPS or Virtual Private Server is a collection of virtual servers hosted on a physical machine. They act similar to dedicated servers but they have lesser capacity and power. However they're cheaper than dedicated servers are.

Because it is a collection of servers it could be confused with shared hosting. However unlike in shared hosting, VPS or VMs (Virtual Machines) don't share their server resources with other users.

Although virtual, it is also different from a cloud server in that, while VPS are hosted on one physical machine, cloud servers are hosted on a virtual space that was created by integrating a vast network of physical machines.

VPS are hosted on physical machines by deploying a "hypervisor" which can manage all the VMs separately.

Hope this helped.

A virtual private server (commonly abbreviated to VPS) is created when a physical server is divided into a smaller, virtual container.

How Virtual Private Server (VPS) works?
By using virtualization technology, the web hosting provider manages to divide the physical server into multiple compartments. The compartments made with the virtual layers act like a virtual wall that separates files from each.
In addition, sites hosted in those compartments can get full root access to the server resources. The compartments or units of the physical server are capable of managing different OS, owing to that webmasters can able to host multiple sites with different OS in the same server.
