VPS Hosting Defined

Nowadays it has become quite simple to build a web portal by yourself with all the charge-free web site templates that are obtainable on the Internet together with free-of-cost web applications that are suitable even for newbies. Hence, lots of new websites are being created each and every day, including blogs - where the moderator can tackle different issues that spring to mind, and picture galleries - where users can share photographs and the history behind them on the World Wide Web. These web sites must be hosted somewhere and one clever web hosting choice is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS denotes Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated server in terms of management as you are given full server root access with a possibility to restart the Virtual Private Server from a distance. The VPS hosting shares resources with other virtual private hosting servers that are hosted on the same physical server. This is reflected in the remarkably cheap price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually more comparable to shared web hosting packages in terms of prices.

Kinds of VPS Hosting

Just as any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ depending on different features, but the Operating System is probably the most apparent difference. Here are the two most essential varieties:

Windows VPS hosting - a virtual private web server system running Windows that will allow applications which require Windows to operate smoothly to be installed on the VPS hosting server.

Linux VPS hosting - a virtual private hosting server system running Linux is the more commonly used variety that you can encounter on the web since it is more affordable to establish and maintain and thus it is more wanted.

VPS servers are also quite popular with resellers and you can find 2 modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller buys a private virtual server and starts offering shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the virtual private web hosting server. It is comparable to the traditional reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller is given root privileges and can change the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact buys entire VPS hosting plans to sell them to the clients instead of offering shared web hosting accounts on one single virtual private web hosting server. It is deemed more profitable but also requests more initial investments to buy the private virtual web server.

Just like any other web hosting type, VPS hosting plans often involve a LAMP software solution stack. LAMP means Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces three more VPS server web hosting varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is quite popular and was the first to hit the 100 000 000 website milestone back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with private virtual web servers as well.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous database management system utilized with lots of apps and hence regularly wanted on a virtual server.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a script language utilized by web developers, so it is popular with different web hosting solutions, including Virtual Private Server hosting ones.
