    Bit of confusion over what a vps is?

    Okay im a bit confused as to what a VPS actually is.

    My friend had a server a bit ago and connected to it using Remote Desktop Connection. and he said it was a vps.

    I have been looking into renting a server like that but i have been reading about vps and it sounds like im looking for a virtual machien not a vps. can anyone help me in clearing up my confusion?

    A VPS/VDS is a "Virtual Private/Dedicated Server" its essentially a server inside of a server. Its just as if you had a dedicated server but with less resources.

    Yes. A VPS is like a dedicated server except it's on a big box divided into little servers.
