The functionality of a Virtual Private Server (VPS) can be described using four terms: compartmentalization, dedicated resources, root access, and isolated hosting environment.

Compartmentalization

To create a VPS, the physical, or master server, is divided into multiple virtual compartments (virtual CPU specs, RAM, hard disk space, etc). Think of it like segmenting a hard disk into multiple drives.

Dedicated Resources

When the server software is set up, each virtual compartment is allotted a specific quota for using the master server’s resources. This includes a dedicated percentage of the server disk space, CPU, and RAM. Hence, when your website is hosted in this new compartment it will operate as if the allocated resources make up the specs for its server. This obviously means that the more compartmentalization’s that exist on a master server, the more powerful hardware it deploys.

Root Access

When compartmentalization and resource allocation are complete, the VPS behaves like a standalone, dedicated server. Hence, you will gain complete root access to the server (and hence complete control over server), allowing you to configure the VPS system as per your needs. As a result, every single server is allowed to select its very individual operating system, configure existing components, and setup new ones and be able to restart it at anytime.

Isolated Environment

Compartmentalization creates an isolated environment for your VPS. Whatever changes you make, or configurations you perform on your VPS cannot affect any other VPS on the same system. The same holds true for all other VPS on the master server. Hence, any instances of malware or cyber threats that have affected, or are affecting any VPS on the master server cannot affect your VPS.
