What is Windows VPS?

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a virtual machine that is run on a high-performance server, alongside other virtual machines. This is done with a help of a special virtualizer, which allows for full VM isolation and truly dedicated resources. The performance of a VPS holds the nearest resemblance to the performance of a dedicated server, however at a much lower price, as serveral VMs are run on a single physical server.  


Why choose a VPS over traditional web hosting?

There are multiple factors that define whether a VPS or a regular shared hosting service is needed. To put simply, if you need increased speeds, improved security and/or dedicated resources, then a VPS is the hosting solution for you. 


What are the advantages of using Microsoft Windows Server OS on your VPS?

First and foremost, Windows Server OS has a similar enough GUI to the regular user Windows OS so that an experienced Windows OS user will have no trouble navigating the operating system. The Windows VPS system also provides a wider range of functions than many alternatives including but not limited to: full update controll and in-depth customization of all settings. If you wish to use Microsoft's ASP.NET, a developer platform made up of tools, programming languages and libraries for building web apps, then having a Windows VPS is a must.

In the end of the day, how you use your Windows VPS is up to you, whether you want to host websites on it, use it as a mail server or use it for web app development. You can be assured that is completely secure and you will have dedicated resources, thanks to the latest virtualization technologies.
