VPS hosting bridges the gap between the services offered by dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting. Dedicated web hosting is costly as it uses a physical dedicated server. On the other hand, customers who use the shared web hosting services will not be able to enjoy the services of the dedicated web hosting. With VPS hosting, customers have the independence to install any type of software as it has its own operating system but at lesser cost than using a physical dedicated server. This is why many customers opt for VPS hosting than the other two choices.
