VPS (stands for a Virtual Private Serve, it can also be called a virtual dedicated server) is a method of partitioning a physical server into multiple independently functioning servers so that it is running on its own dedicated machine.

Users get root access to securely manage their private server, just as they would do with a dedicated server. Each VPS user gets his own secure disk space, bandwidth, file system and process space, without sharing CPU load or applications with any other user on the VPS system. The virtual private server can run its own operating system and can be independently rebooted. However, the VPS has limited CPU, RAM, and disk space.

The VDS management module provides a wide range of features for your virtual private server management. You can add a virtual server, edit parameters of an existing server, manage its IP-addresses, reboot, reinstall or suspend it and so on.
