Virtual private server hosting is a web hosting solution. VPS hosting is used for hosting web sites through virtual machines.
A Virtual Private server is basically a part of a partitioned physical server. This physical server has been divided into several parts, through the use of virtualisation software. Every virtual partition in the physical server has the capacity to run its own operating system and a set of applications and to become an independent Virtual Private Server in itself.

Virtual Private server hosting offers a huge level of flexibility over the shared module of web site hosting service. This flexibility of a VPS hosting is almost equal to a dedicated server hosting
service, but the user needs not spend so much money, as in a dedicated server hosting.
