What is VPS?
A Virtual Private Server in short VPS is also known as VDS (Virtual Dedicated Server) that acts like a physical server to its end users(clients). But it was actually installed on a physical server that has been hosted by many websites. An individual physical server can have several VPSs, each one has its own operating system(OS).

How VPS works?
A VPS hosting provider installs a virtualization software, called a hypervisor to abstract a few of its(Physical Server) resources to allot the virtual private server and provides customers with access to an imitated server, called a virtual machine (VM). Every virtual machine runs its own operating system and has restricted access to the physical server resources like CPUs, RAM, and Storage. While end-users access their own virtual machine, but not the physical server.
