What is VPS hosting?

These days it has become quite easy to kick off an online portal on your own with all the charge-free web site templates that are available on the World Wide Web along with free software applications that are good even for inexperienced clients. Therefore, lots of brand new web sites start to operate every day, incl. blogs - where the moderator can touch upon different topics that spring to mind, and picture galleries - where everybody can display images and the history behind them on the web. These web sites must be hosted somewhere and one excellent web hosting alternative is a VPS.

What is a VPS?

VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated web server as far as management is concerned since you are offered complete root-level access with an option to restart the virtual web hosting server remotely. The VPS shares system resources with other virtual hosting servers that are accommodated on the very same physical machine. This results in a very affordable price, which is much cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more related to shared packages as far as prices are concerned.

Types of VPS

Just as any other web hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ on the basis of various features, but the Operating System is probably the most essential difference. Here are the 2 most important types:

Windows VPS - a VPS web server hosting platform running Windows that will permit applications which require Windows to function properly to be activated on the VPS web server.

Linux VPS - a virtual web server hosting system running Linux is the more widely used variety that you can encounter on the web since it is cheaper to set up and administer and thus it is more wanted.

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

VPS reseller - the reseller purchases a private virtual server and begins selling shared web hosting plans that are hosted on the private virtual web server. It is similar to the traditional reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller gains full root privileges and can update the web server's configuration.

VPS reseller - the reseller actually purchases whole VPS packages to sell them to the clients instead of selling shared web hosting plans on one single virtual private web server. It is considered more remunerative but also needs more introductory investments to purchase the private virtual server.

Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS packages frequently entail a LAMP stack. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more virtual web server hosting types:

VPS with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is quite famous and was the first to exceed the one hundred million web site milestone back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with private virtual servers as well.

VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system used with many web apps and thus frequently requested on a virtual hosting server.

VPS with PHP - PHP is a script language designed for web development, thus it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, incl. Virtual Private Server web hosting ones.
