A VPS Hosting is a product sold by companies to customers who wants to host their web sites on their own servers with the same efficiency than a dedicacted server without the cost problems.
VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a server shared with other virtual hosted servers. Each VPS has the same caracteristic of a dedicated server and runs on a same real one with using virtualization tools like Xen, Virtuozzo...to reduce the expenses for customers and it works with its own operating system.

Every VPS is composed with a dedicated RAM, a disk space to store the data, a CPU (Central Processing Unit) to execute tasks, and a unlimited bandwidth.

Of course, all of these are dissociated from a VPS to another and their prices are variable according to the configuration. We also notice that VPS running under Linux operating system are less greedy in power than VPS running under Windows operating system. But the two Operating Systems have their utility.

Is VPS running only with Linux and Windows based server?What about JAVA based server, is it not performing good with JAVA based server?

VPS Hosting has better security because of its self-dependency. That is because every virtual server uses its own resources and OS, it can be rebooted and configured absolutely independently from the other virtual machines and it’s not affected by other users’ actions. Self-dependency makes VPS Hosting more secure than shared web hosting.
When such kind of all configuration and facility available in Dedicated server too, then why should I go though only VPS?What features make it differ from Dedicatedserver?

In terms of security i think Dedicated is better,because resources are not shared with another one.Its as per knowledge, what you say about this?

Virtual Private Server hosting may be the hosting of split up organizations for different consumers in one single server. This technology allows the hosting provider to partition and create multiple virtual servers from physical server.

VPS allows each website to be fully independent as if each were on its separate machine.

For the users whose website have outgrown their shared hosting service but can't afford a dedicated server, VPS hosting may be the best solution.

VPS Hosting :
On a VPS, you are allotted resources that are not shared by everyone. The over all CPU time and memory are shared across all accounts on the system, but at the same time portions of those resources are always dedicated to each account. This allows for more power and flexibility than being on a shared account.

VPS is another type of hosting which uses virtualization technology to conceptualize the hosting services. VPS rationalizes a lot higher utilization of the available resources. VPS offerings are priced as the part of a service bundle.

(VPS)Virtual Private Server is between Dedicated Hosting and Shared Hosting. In this you have option to choose your own software and other customization like dedicated hosting but you will have only a partition space of the dedicated server and not the whole.

It can provide your site with good control and bandwidth and cost less as compared to a dedicated server.
