VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated server as far as administration is concerned since you gain root access with a possibility to restart the private virtual server distantly. The VPS hosting shares resources with other VPS web hosting servers that are accommodated on the same physical machine. This is reflected in the quite inexpensive price, which is much cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is actually more similar to shared website hosting packages in terms of pricing.

Types of VPS Hosting

Just like any other web hosting type, Virtual Servers may vary based on different features, but the OS is perhaps the most significant difference. Here we have the two most important types:

Windows VPS hosting - a virtual server hosting system running Windows that will allow software apps which require Windows to perform smoothly to be activated on the VPS server.

Linux VPS hosting - a private virtual hosting server platform running Linux is the more commonly used variety that you can encounter on the World Wide Web since it is more affordable to build and handle and so it is more sought after.

VPS servers are also very sought after by resellers and you can find two modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller buys a VPS server and begins offering shared packages that are hosted on the VPS web hosting server. It is comparable to the ordinary reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller gains full server root access and can revise the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact purchases entire VPS hosting packages to offer them to the clients instead of offering shared web hosting accounts on a single private virtual server. It is deemed more profitable but also demands more introductory payments to buy the private virtual web server.

Just as any other web hosting variety, VPS hosting packages regularly entail a LAMP platform. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more virtual web server hosting varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server is quite popular and was the first to surpass the 100 million website mark back in 2009, so it is normally used with private virtual web servers too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system utilized with many web apps and thus regularly wanted on a VPS hosting server.

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