A virtual private server (commonly abbreviated to VPS) is created when a physical server is divided into smaller, virtual compartments. Just like a dedicated server, a virtual private server has its own operating system, dedicated storage, and dedicated RAM and CPU resource but it costs much less than a dedicated server.
let's talk about how to set up a VPS!
Step 1: Learn How to Log into Your VPS via Secure Shell (SSH) Access.
Step 2: Update Your Server.
Step 3: Create a New User and Modify Its Privileges.
Step 4: Enable Public Key Authentication.
Step 5: Set Up a Firewall for Your VPS.

Cool Things You Can Do With A VPS
1. Create A Private Sync Service. We all love Dropbox: I know it makes my life easier.
2. Deploy A Personal Cloud.
3. Encrypt Your Wireless Connections.
4. Run Private Analytics.
5. Manage Your Projects.
6. Develop And Test Your Code.
7. Manage Your IoT Devices.
8. Run a VOIP Server.

Hope this information Helps!
Regards,
Lewis

VPS are simple server hosted on an operating system of a physical hardware. The VPS shares the hardware resources of the physical server along with other VPS servers created on the same host.

The common free virtualized technologies are OPenVZ,XEN,KVM, which are different in their architecture and resource sharing type.
Since VPS is sharing the hardware it will not be as powerful as standalone bare metal dedicated server so it can be suited only for small type businesses which needs an isolated environment and less power.

It very easy to create VPS server as it doesn't requires any hardware to be provisioned. VPS migration and revovery is very easy as the VPS is created and everything is isolated under folders.
