Is a VPS the same as a VPN?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 3:20 pm

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a server that is configured and managed as if it were a dedicated, physical server. A VPS is a great option for businesses that need a high-capacity server, but don’t have the budget for a dedicated server.

A VPS also offers the flexibility to scale up or down as your business needs change.

PRO TIP: A VPS is not the same as a VPN. A VPS is a Virtual Private Server and a VPN is a Virtual Private Network. A VPS provides you with a dedicated server that you can use to host websites or run applications. A VPN provides you with a private, secure network that you can use to access the internet or your company’s network.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a technology that creates a private network between two or more computers. VPNs are commonly used to protect the privacy of information when using public networks, such as the internet.

A VPN connection encrypts all of the data that is sent between the computer and the VPN server. This prevents anyone else from being able to view or access the information.
