Virtual Private Hosting (VPS) is a type of hosting where the "server" is defined through software. The main differences from shared servers are root privileges to the account and a larger defined set of resources per each account. InMotion Hosting provides two types of VPS Hosting - Managed and Cloud. Cloud VPS hosting provides more granular level of control for the setup of accounts through the command line. VPS accounts are ideal for developers or website administrators where more control and resource availability is needed.
