How Does VPS Work? Print

VPS ( Virtual Private Server ) simulates the experience of a dedicated server even though you’re still sharing the physical server with other users.

Your web hosting provider like Bacloud installs a virtual layer on top of the operating system (OS) of the server using virtualization technology. Separating the server into individual compartments with virtual walls, this layer allows each user to install their own OS and software.

Because a VPS separates your files from other users on the OS level, it truly is a private server. This means your website lives within a secure container with guaranteed resources — think memory, disk space, CPU cores, etc. You don’t have to share any of it with others.
