    VPS is for websites which outgrow shared hosting, it gives more resources and hosting power.
    Price depends on the provider some are expensive some aren't.
    If you need a VPS I could help, I'm a VPS provider myself.

    VPS is like a PC.
    You can install whatever you want and run it 24/7 without switching it off.

    Most IMers will install their SEO tools inside VPS and let it run 24/7 - just run and forget about it.
    VPS usually has high internet connection speed like 1000mbps.

    So you can use VPS to run your SEO tools while you use your own PC to do your own stuffs (keyword research, games, market research, bla bla bla).

    If you are using a VPS strictly for a website, ignoring the software part it is not really worth it most times. VPS stands for virtual private server. This means that you are still on a "shared" server however a partition and specifications are given specifically to you. It is like "pretend dedicated"

    For software it is great, but as far as outgrowing a shared server for a website just skip the VPS and go straight to dedicated. Dedicated boxes are awesome :) VPS gave me a headache for the two weeks I tried to use one on a single site.
