Before we discuss VPS you must know about virtualization I will try to be very simple. In-home you have a desktop or a laptop this desktop has a hard disk your operating system and windows are installed on this hard disk. when you boot your computer it boots from that hard disk and directly loads to your computer
If you install another operating system on the same hard disk you will not be able to load both operating systems together you can load only one at a time but now with virtualization, you can install multiple operating systems on the same hard disk so you can boot multiple operating systems simultaneously at the same time.
So basically virtualization is a technology that allows you to run multiple operating systems together on the same hardware.
VPS( virtual private server). It is a virtual server when we talk about the hosting providers such as Amazon web services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Digital ocean these companies have a huge data center. A data center has a lot of physical servers that are connected together
Physical servers when you create your own VPS server simply they(hosting providers) create a machine operating system for you inside these physical servers. So your VPS machine is simply one of many operating systems running on that physical server you don’t have to worry about the technical when you get a VPS server
These VPS service providers will give you a public IP to that machine you have a server bound to IP address. It’s your own VPS where you can do whatever you want
