What is a VPS, and what is it used for?
A virtual private server (VPS) can be used to host websites (e-commerce, content, media) and software applications (portals, extranets, collaborative solutions, wikis, CRM). Unlike shared hosting, the data is isolated onto a virtual machine which is dedicated to the user.
The VPS is a perfect compromise between web hosting plans and physical servers, combining reliability with the high performance of a dedicated server — but without the difficulty of managing a server’s physical hardware.

Can I host several websites on a VPS?
Yes. A VPS can be partitioned, and organised to suit your requirements. This means you can use it to host several websites or projects, by allocating a private space to each one.
You choose the volume of each space, too. To simplify how you do this, you can install a web hosting control panel like Plesk or cPanel.
