Understanding VPS can be understood more easily if it is aligned with the only type of hosting, Shared Hosting. If on Shared Hosting you have to share hosting with many servers at once, then VPS makes you have a personal “space” for your own server. As a parable, if you have ever gathered in one room with many speakers at the same time giving material to each participant, then that is the picture of Shared Hosting. Conversely, if you give material to participants in a separate room, and other presenters in their own room, then that is the picture of VPS. The advantage that is highlighted from the VPS is the private space that makes you unobtrusive and not disturbed by other servers. For more details, you can find out more through this link.

VPS or also known as Virtual Private Server or VDS (Virtual Dedicated Server) is a type of hosting service (website broadcasting) using server virtualization technology based on physical servers. As explained at the opening, VPS provides a private space for you in the form of a virtual server that is not real. Even though in reality you have to share a physical server with other users, VPS makes you feel like you have a full physical server. That is because VPS is installed on the OS level on each computer. This division is almost the same principle with the hard disk partition on your computer.

The VPS workflow starts from the physical server in the form of a computer. This physical server is a place where you and all other users store the files and databases needed for the website to be hosted. Later, the browser used by your website visitors will send a request to the server, then the server will transfer the desired files to visitors via the internet. Well, it is during the process of receiving and sending back that VPS works. So the user will get a response from the VPS which is directly related to the physical server and provides the requested file via the internet. VPS is useful as a physical server impersonator that is personal and is not affected by other VPS on one server.
