virtual private server (VPS)

Popular Terms
A virtual dedicated server that mimics a dedicated server to its users. The server is installed on one computer, but it able to provide hosting capabilities to multiple websites simultaneously. Although a VPS can operate multiple hosing servers, only one operating system is necessary for it to perform correctly. Each server that is operated by the VPS does so using its own unique platform, which helps eliminate the risk that one server could cause all the servers to malfunction.
