A VPS, or virtual private server, is a form of multi-tenant cloud hosting in which virtualized server resources are made available to an end-user over the internet via a cloud or hosting provider.
We’ve read hundreds of reviews of VPS services that offer no real insight into the actual performance of the service being offered. Instead, we’re treated to a regurgitation of the features offered or told about things that are impossible to evaluate over a short period (such as uptime guarantees). Often reviews offer no more information than the promotional material offered by the service provider themselves.
We’ll take a more technical approach by examining what’s actually being offered by a VPS provider. For this review, we are looking at a VPS plan from hostworld.uk.
