Despite the share of Windows Server in the enterprise market is still significant, Linux continues to gradually gain dominance as a server OS. In this regard, the question may arise whether Windows VPS/VDS hosting has any future. But the good old Windows Server still allows you to effectively use server hosting capacity thanks to an easy-to-manage and familiar environment. Therefore, Windows may appeal not only to large corporations but also to small or medium-sized businesses that use VPS services.
A VPS / VDS or “virtual private/dedicated server" is a virtual machine deployed on a physical server. The server itself is hosted in a data center and maintained by a hosting service provider. VPS fully reproduces the operation of a bare metal server. When renting a VPS, you get full control over it: root access, ability to install any software you want and to perform deep configuration. VPS/VDS is a flexible and affordable option among the hosting services available on the market.
