A virtual private server (VPS) is a web hosting service that lets users have their own exclusive web hosting environment. There may be several virtual servers running within a single physical server. But to the customers, each one looks and feels like an independent machine. Compared to other web hosting services, a VPS is more stable, performs better, provides more disk space and memory, and is more flexible in terms of features it provides.

A VPS is like a luxury apartment. A low-end apartment complex could have hundreds of tenants, but in your high-end building, there are only a handful of you enjoying prime accommodation and facilities.
