What is a virtual private server?

VPS signifies Virtual Private Server and it works like a dedicated web hosting server as far as administration is concerned since you are given root-level access with an option to restart the virtual private hosting server from a distance. The virtual private servers shares resources with other Virtual Private Servers that are accommodated on the same physical server.
