A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine sold as a service by a web hosting provider.A virtual private server runs its own copy of an operating system (OS), and customers may have super user-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS.
For many purposes, they are functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server, and being software-defined, are able to be much more easily created and configured. They are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server. However, they share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSes.
