What are the VPN And VPS differences?

The differences come down to one major detail, the tunneling protocol. While it is possible to connect to your VPS and use the virtual machine to host a web browser and then use that web browser to surf the net, you are not getting the internet security available with a VPN. The connections are not hidden, the IP addresses are not masked, the connection is traceable and worse yet, it is not encrypted. A VPN is only used for one thing, safe secure anonymous untraceable encrypted connection to the Internet.


It’s not a matter of which one is better, it is a matter of using the right tool for the right purpose. A VPN keeps your connections private and safe, a VPS keeps your devices and machines safe. Believe it or not, you can use a VPN on VPS, or connect to a VPS with a VPN. The only catch is that some VPS providers don’t allow installation of VPN on their servers and in other cases it takes considerable programming skill to accomplish. However, if you are able it will give the benefits of both protocols. The VPN will keep your connection private and untraceable so you can log in to the VPS without anyone the wiser. Then you can use the VPS to open suspicious emails, or to log into websites that may install malware or run programs from unknown providers without fear of damaging your machine.

The phrases virtual private server (VPS) and virtual private network (VPN) are frequently interchanged. A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is essentially a type of web hosting, but a Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a service and technology that allows you to stay entirely private and anonymous online.
