Virtual Private Servers (also called "Virtual Dedicated Servers") are servers which do not interface directly with the hardware which they are running on and cannot interface directly with eachother. The server is as virtual as it is independent of actual hardware and private in the sense that other VPS servers on the node cannot interact with its file system or processes. Instead of allowing the kernel or operating system to interface directly with hardware components, virtualization software intercepts requests, queues them, and manages their interpretation.
Whether you have outgrown shared hosting or are looking for an affordable alternative to dedicated server hosting, there is a good chance that a virtual private server will fit your needs and your budget better than any other hosting solution.
