What is VPS Hosting

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. Virtual means it does not exist physically in front of you, it is located somewhere in some datacenter you can’t visit or take a look at your server and say `Yayeee! See, that’s my server`.

So, we are left with two words now, Private server. Private means something that you own and you and only you have control over it. So, the Virtual private server you have is your own Server. No one else has access to that server and if you forget the root password of your server, Only you can reset it. So, We finally know what is the meaning of private in VPS.

Now, the most interesting word, Server. We know what is the meaning of Virtual and private. So, let’s understand the meaning of Server. Server is just a computer with RAM and CPU to process code and be connected with internet 24/7. If you have dedicated IP address, You can even convert your computer into a Server. So, Server is just a computer that has better internet connection than yours and is connected with internet 24/7. One more difference is the resources in Server are used by compilers, web servers and database servers instead of applications like Web browsers, games, designing softwares, etc.

So, now you know exactly what is VPS, So, I am going to tell you the uses of VPS, You will be shocked to know the possibilities.

  4. You can setup masternode to make money from crypto-currency.
  5. You can use it as cache to download and upload huge files on the Internet. I use it as cache. It is because, VPS are secure and has very fast internet connection. So, When I have to download and upload huge files, I download and upload it from my VPS instead of my local computer.
