VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. A VPS is a physical server, which is divided into smaller virtual servers. A VPS offers you the full freedom of managing your server. It gives you the possibility to choose your own OS and gives you the freedom to install any software. You can keep your software up-to-date and protected against abuse.
Servermeister.com is responsible for the maintenance of the hardware of the server on which your VPS runs. TierOne is also responsible for the accessibility of the network connection between the server and Internet. VPS is an excellent alternative, for example web hosting of multiple domain names, where you can set up your VPS as web hosting server. You don’t need to purchase hardware, but you’ll rent only a small portion of a server. You save on expenditure, but there is no difference, because it has the same capabilities as if you have a whole server. When you have a website that has higher demands, a dedicated server is a good alternative.
