What is Virtual Private Servers Hosting?

Web hosting is a service, which permits you to upload your site on a web hosting server so as to bring it online and a VPS is a virtual private web server - it works like a dedicated server, lending complete root access to the user, but it shares the system resources of the physical server with other virtual private servers hosting accounts.
