What Is A VPS?


A VPS stands for virtual private server, also known as a virtual dedicated or dedicated virtual. There’s different names for it, but basically, the most common one is VPS, or virtual private server. What that is…it’s Web hosting. It’s in between shared Web hosting and dedicated Web hosting or dedicated server. With shared Web hosting, it’s pretty much you’re in this pool with tons of other people, and typically, if you’re with providers like the HostGators, Bluehosts, and GoDaddys, they’re really slow. Then you have the dedicated servers, where you get the full machine. But what about in between? That’s where the VPSs come in, and which in my opinion, it’s probably one of the best solutions, especially if you’re running, for example, like a e-commerce software, like Magento or osCommerce, or any kind of…even WordPress, if you have anything more than just a brochure website, because the speed of the load time affects SEO— and of course, affects your user experience as well. With the VPS, what that way means is you have a full server.

 They call this the VPS node. VPS node is basically the actual server that these VPSs are hosted on. What a VPS is, it’s you take a server, you slice up into a few big chunks, and each of those chunks is its own microenvironment, its own operating system. So from the software’s perspective, it’s basically having a full server, just without the full resources. The cool thing with that is, unlike the shared hosting, where if one customer on that Web host is using up tons of resources, everyone’s sites are going to run slow. With the VPS, because it’s similar to the dedicated server, everything is partitioned, so if the next guy that has a VPS is just destroying their resources because they’re running a really heavy video website, where it requires tons of software to compress a video, stuff like that, it wouldn’t affect your server—which is a really cool thing about the VPS’s. Another cool thing about the VPS’s is also with the shared hosting, if you need to upgrade space, , you can.

How To Correctly Log Out From VPS?

Before exiting VPS, always make sure that your auto-trading button is on and all your robots have smiley faces. The correct way to exit VPS is always using this little X button at the top toolbar. Never exit the trading platform using this X at the top right or going to File, Exit. This will close down the trading platform, and your robots will not be able to trade on our servers. If you’re on a Mac, you will not have this toolbar. On a Mac, just go to the top left and close the window using the red button. Here we are on Windows, just press this little X, and this pop-up will come up, saying, “This remote session will be disconnected.” Your program, your trading platform will continue to run on the server, and you can just press OK, and you will be disconnected.
