What is the difference between VDS and VPS?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 3:52 pm

Virtual Private Server (VPS) and Virtual Private Server (VDS) are both types of virtual server. A virtual server is a computer that is used to provide a virtual space on the Internet for users.

A virtual server is also sometimes called a virtual hosting server.

PRO TIP: Please be aware that VDS and VPS are two different types of virtualization technology with different capabilities. VDS provides a higher level of isolation and security than VPS, but is also more expensive. Make sure you understand the difference before choosing a virtualization solution for your needs.

A virtual server can be run on a physical server, or it can be run on a virtual machine.

The main difference between VPS and VDS is that a VPS is a dedicated server while a VDS is a shared server. A dedicated server is one that is specifically configured for your needs and is not shared with other users.

A shared server is one that is shared with other users.
