Virtual private servers, or VPS for short, are an excellent hosting choice for companies who are too large to benefit from a shared web hosting environment, yet still too small to justify the expense of a fully dedicated server. A VPS is like a shared hosting plan in the sense that many different people use the same server, yet like a dedicated server in the sense that each user has their own personal control over server assets and programming. VPS plans use the same physical server as other users, but offers each user the convenience, privacy, security, and application control of having their own separate physical server.

Each of the companies reviewed here on VPS Free Trials offers customers a chance to test their service for free before committing.
