Virtual Private Servers
Virtual Private Servers clients get a share of a physical server for a number of hardware resources they’ve paid for, and multiple clients often share one physical host machine. From the client’s perspective a VPS barely differs from a dedicated server with a comparable low to mid-range configuration, but thanks to the virtualization layer, the service provider can maintain a uniform range of host hardware while offering multiple different virtual server configurations, which then, in turn, translates to a wider range of server options and lower prices than with dedicated servers.
A virtual server is a server that shares hardware and software resources with other operating systems (OS), versus dedicated servers. Because they are cost-effective and provide faster resource control, virtual servers are popular in Web hosting environment
How it Works
A VPS is basically a server running within a server. One physical server hosts multiple virtual servers, each isolated from the others. This is accomplished with software, called a hypervisor, that segments the physical server and keeps each segment separate from the rest. ... Each VPS can also be rebooted independently.

A Virtual Private Server (VPS) uses virtualization software to partition physical servers into multiple "virtual" servers—each having the ability to run its own operating system and applications.
Virtualization is the process of creating a software-based, or virtual, representation of something, such as virtual applications, servers, storage and networks. It is the single most effective way to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility for all size businesses.
OS Virtualization—aka Virtual Machines.
