What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)

A virtual private server is a form of cloud computing that involves leasing virtual servers from a service provider for your use. It provides you with what essentially appears to be a server all to yourself. You may wish to use your South Africa VPS Server for various purposes, including business, online privacy or even running an online game. While not as secure as dedicated hosting services, it offers considerable benefits over shared hosting services. For example, you have root access and full administrative control over your South African Virtual Private Server allowing you to install whatever programs or software you need while also having complete control over security.

This type of server is primarily used for web servers, database servers, mail servers, and application servers. Hosting companies will usually purchase those resources on dedicated servers from their ISP or collocation provider. Then they’ll use a virtualization product to slice up a number of these shared resources into smaller partitions that they can then sell to customers as dedicated resources. This makes it possible for them to provide some level of high availability while maintaining a large pool of resources to sell based on demand. In some cases, even applications with low resource requirements might be better off running in containers rather than an entire physical machine due to cost or performance reasons. It’s important not to confuse virtualization technology with cloud hosting.
