VPS is a virtual private server that gives you a separate process environment not shared by other users with root (admin) level access to you. What this means is that
– you can customize your hosting environment and server to your needs. This option is not available on shared/sdx/reseller server as the same server software is used by all users, so not all settings can be changed to your liking.
– your IP addresses are not shared with anyone else.
– you can run background servers/process on you vps
– you have full root access to your vps
However at the same time vps hardware resources (especially CPU) comes from the same machine shared by other VPS. Therefore the CPU is limited as compared to say shared SDX plan.
The hosting services we provide, the best upgrade path depends on Control or Power.
For Control, the upgrade path is:
Shared : Reseller : VPS : Dedicated
For Power, the upgrade path is:
Shared : VPS : SDX : Dedicated
