What is a Virtual Private Server (VPS)?

VPS is an abbreviation for Virtual Private Server. A VPS is a physical server, which is divided into smaller virtual servers. With a VPS you have complete control over your own server. Enjoy the freedom of managing your very own server. Choose your own OS and install any software you want. You can keep your software up-to-date and protected against abuse.

TransIP is responsible for the maintenance of the server hardware that runs your VPS. TransIP is also responsible for the accessibility of the network connection between the server and Internet.

VPS is an excellent choice for example for hosting several websites by configuring the server as a webhosting server. You don't have to purchase hardware, instead you rent a small portion of a server. This is a significant cost-reduction without drawbacks: your VPS has the same capabilities as a fully-fledged server at a fraction of the cost.
