In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about VPS hosting in under 10 minutes.
First, what is a VPS?
Well, to understand this, you need to go back to the basics of a server, because that is where VPS comes from.
In a nutshell, a server is a special computer used within a network (interlinked computers communicating with each other) to ‘serve’ as the central repository for ‘writing and reading’ data.
This means that the server is that one computer within the network where all the other computers store and retrieve files. Here, the files can be anything from images, texts, numbers, video, etc.
Now, from that simplified understanding of a server, it is clear there are forms, right?
Well, you are correct to think that way.
There are several types of servers in Egypt, and here are some of them.
For a server to perform its tasks such as run applications, read and write data, among other tasks, it needs resources. These resources include;
With these and other resources, a server can do anything within its capabilities (mostly dictated by these resources).
A server with say 1GB RAM can handle fewer tasks compared to one with 2GB RAM.
While that may be a generalization, it holds in most cases.
In short, a server rich in resources (RAM, CPU, and storage) is deemed better.
We’ve mentioned that a server can be used to handle tasks such as storing web files (for websites).
Now, depending on the resources of a server, it can handle data from more than one user. A user here is a data source (website, program, etc).
And when that happens, you can say that is a shared server, meaning, the users are sharing resources of the same server to perform tasks.
This ‘shared’ concept is prominent in the web hosting industry, where you find a single server carrying several users (websites). And when that happens, you can say the users are under ‘shared hosting.’
Now, since users are sharing server resources, problems arise when there are more users, thus overwhelming the server.
That is when ‘virtualization’ comes in. Here, a single server is ‘subdivided’ into independent compartments, yielding ‘small servers.’
This is made possible, thanks to special software called Hypervisor. These small servers are what we now call VPS servers.
VPS stands for Virtual Private Servers.
Have you now understood VPS servers in Egypt?
VPS servers are no different from a server that you already know. Only that, the VPS server comes from implementing a virtual layer on top of the parent server OS (Operating System).
Doing so results in virtual servers, capable of running their own OS separate from the host server.
Why would anyone go into the trouble of building ‘servers inside another server?’
