What's Your VPS?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I figured I'd start a thread for people to post what they have for a Virtual Private Server (VPS). Post your Provider, Price, Specs, Location, Use and anything else.

 

If you don't know what a VPS is it is basically an Operating System (OS) that is running in parallel with others on a single physical computer or multiple computers linked together in a cluster. These parallel operating systems are secured from each other and appear to the end user/client the same as it would if you had that same OS simply running on a dedicated computer. The main advantages of a VPS over a dedicated server are scalability meaning more RAM, Cores, or Storage can be allocated to a given virtual machine at a moments notice. Also a VPS has ease of mobility meaning the server can be 'virtually' moved across the world if need be in a matter of a few minutes.

I'm abit confused, what are these used for?

Can be used for hosting websites, game servers, torrent servers, ftp, online or offsite backups, etc. There's hundreds of uses for a VPS.

I edited the first post to explain what a VPS is for anybody that does not know. I hope my explanation will be sufficient.
