VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated server in terms of administration since you have full server root privileges with an option to reboot the VPS web hosting server distantly. The VPS hosting shares resources with other private virtual web hosting servers that are hosted on the very same physical machine.

Kinds of VPS Hosting

It is akin to the regular reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller obtains full server root privileges and can modify the server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact purchases whole VPS hosting packages to sell them to the customers instead of offering shared web hosting plans on a single VPS. It is considered more lucrative but also requests more initial payments to buy the private virtual web hosting server.
