What is a VPS (Virtual Private Server)

VPS (Virtual Private Server) - a dedicated server running in a virtual environment. VPS has most of the advantages of a physical dedicated server.
It is limited only by the chosen virtualization technology.

What is the difference between VPS and shared hosting?

The most important difference between VPS and shared hosting is that on VPS, the user is provided with root access (full server access). With these privileges, you can install additional software, create new users, and flexibly manage the server as you wish. However, this requires at least basic Linux user skills.

At ONEHOST, we use real VPS servers based on KVM virtualization.
Each KVM server is a fully isolated server with its own OS kernel, and its operation does not depend on the operation of other virtual machines. A failure of the shared OS kernel is impossible here.
