A remote web surfer can not tell a Virtual Private Server (VPS) from a dedicated server. VPS servers provide the highest level of security just like a dedicated server, complete with customizable firewall protection and secure isolated disk space. A VPS, like a dedicated server can have an unlimited number of domain names, or web accounts installed on it. A VPS, like a dedicated server has its own set of unix init scripts, user logins, system processes, file-systems with unlimited root access, and custom application software such as the apache web server. Like a dedicated server, a VPS has its own IP address, port numbers and network connections. The primary difference between a VPS and a dedicated server is that you only pay for what you want to use in terms of CPU, MEMORY, BANDWIDTH and DISK SPACE. A VPS can provide substantial cost savings to the business that needs the highest level of security, flexibility and performance without paying a premium for the higher capacity cpu/disk/memory/bandwidth of a dedicated server.
