I'm really new to the topic of hosting and stuff and i really wonder, what is VPS hosting in the first place? What are the main differences between VPS hosting and server/cloud hosting? Are there any benefits of VPS hosting over other options? Is it safe?

Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS/VPS), like regular hosting, is the placement of your sites on the hosting provider's server in parallel with the sites of other users. But unlike regular hosting, the number of clients hosted on one server is much less, which makes the allowable load much larger. At the same time, a certain server capacity (processor, memory, RAM) is assigned to you. Therefore, this service can be called the next step in the development of the site, when more than 5-10 thousand visitors a day appear on it.


VPS is access to the operating system on the server, and, therefore, the ability to flexibly configure the environment and install programs. VPS does not mean more performance compared to expensive shared hosting plans. It is very likely that the visited site will run into VPS restrictions rather than the restrictions of an expensive shared-tariff.
 VPS are guaranteed resources. This means that during peak hours your site will not suffer from the fact that the server is overloaded with neighbors.
