You need to know VPS are mainly divided into 2 part in hosting Industry if you want to buy a VPS server then you need to collect the information about VPS.

  • OpenVZ (lowest price)
  • KVM (Average Price)

As per knowledge, these are the types of VPS and every type have a different feature. i will explain here in a simple way-

  1. OpenVZ knows as open virtualization and they are provided at the lowest cost because in OpenVZ we can provide extra resources to the customer which resources do not have the seller.  As I have 10 Gb ram a server I can distribute 10 people with all of the 10 GB ram OpenVZ work on sharing resources.
  2. KVM is known as the kernel-based virtual machine KVM is better than OpenVZ because there is no overselling problem. In KVM seller can sell a fixed resource to one person it depends on the buyer he uses or not.

What is VPN(Virtual Private Network)

Vpn is a virtual private network and this is created by local or worldwide both state. This is a network where you need to connect with a server and  your location will be hide and create a secure tunnel for surfing the internet. Basically, Vpn is widely used for surfing blocked sites. In the Digital industry vpn price vary because some companies provide vpn at zero cost like vpnbook .  Keep in mind free may be insecure and unreliable some times and many free VPN set a limit for surfing.


Vpn use in companies, Banks and any other platform to transfer their data in a secure way. In the banks, they use a VPN to connect our main server so they are too difficult to hack or data leakage.

Vpn is also used for accessing block websites by geolocation if any website which blocked in the USA then you can use VPN and there is an option for choosing a country to choose other countries and surfing websites.

VPN creates a peer to peer connection with clients. P2P connection is called for connecting two or more computer to share resources and data, not a particular server. P2P connections find in mostly offices because they are connected to each other with a modem and connect to the internet this is the procedure of peer to peer connection of computers.


I explain here both and both have a lot of difference but what is the actual difference between them. you  know that VPN and VPS both are work in a different way.



           VPS SERVER

 VPN server provides secure tunnel on surfing internet. VPS provides resources to a buyer for the running websites.
 VPN servers are providing service free and costly in both terms. VPS server will not get free on the internet there prices are maybe starting at 4$.(this is the min price)
 we access a private network over a public network. VPS is a machine and its resources distribute to many clients.
You Can set up VPN in VPS server. A VPS server never set up in VPN server

These are the main difference b/w VPN and VPS both works are different and VPS handle the websites and VPN handle network integrity.
