How Does VPS Work?
When you get a VPS, it’s like getting a separate room in the house. This room is your private space. No one else can enter or use it. You can keep your things there, arrange them the way you want, and lock the room if needed.
A tool called a ‘hypervisor’ helps to create these separate rooms in the big house. It divides the main server (house) into many VPS (rooms). Each VPS has its own rules, systems, and tools. But all the VPS share the main resources of the house.
VPS vs. Other Types
- Shared Hosting: Imagine a classroom with many students. All students share the same space, tables, and chairs. This is like shared hosting. All websites use the same resources, and if one website is busy, others might have to wait.
- Dedicated Hosting: Think of it as having a classroom all to yourself. All the tables, chairs, and resources are only for you. You have full control.
- VPS Hosting: It’s like having a study cubicle in a big library. Your space is your own. You have your table, chair, and shelves. But you still share the main library with others.
In simple words, VPS is a mix of shared and dedicated hosting. It gives you a private space (like a study cubicle) but is more affordable than having an entire classroom to yourself.
