What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?
A Virtual Private Server is a server divided into fully separate hosting environments. When you have VPS hosting, one of those environments is completely dedicated to you. That means you don't have to share resources (such as RAM or CPU) with other customers and you're less likely to be impacted by their behavior.
What about VPS vs. Dedicated?
Another great question. A dedicated server is a server that's literally dedicated to you and no one else, which means the world (or in this case, the server) is your oyster. Learn more about the benefits of VPS and Dedicated here.

Wait… if we're talking about a VPS, what is a VPN then?
Yup, it can be a little confusing. But a virtual private server (VPS) is a form of web hosting, while a virtual private network (VPN) is a technology that allows you to remain completely anonymous when using the web.
When should I use VPS hosting over Shared?
In short, a virtual private server is ideal for users looking for more control over their hosting environment. Maybe your site traffic has grown, or maybe you have multiple websites and need more resources to run them all effectively. A VPS gives you more flexibility and control to bump up things like RAM and disk space without paying for more than you need.
