What is VPS hosting?

Now it has become very easy to design a web page by yourself with all the free web site skins that are obtainable on the web together with free software apps that are suitable even for inexperienced users. Hence, lots of new sites are born every day, among them blogs - where the moderator can focus on various issues that cross his minds, and image galleries - where everyone can share pics and the stories behind them on the web. These sites must be hosted someplace and one apt web hosting alternative is a VPS.

What is a VPS?

VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated web hosting server in terms of management because you obtain complete server root access with a possibility to reboot the VPS web hosting server distantly. The VPS shares system resources with other private virtual servers that are accommodated on the same physical machine. This is reflected in the quite modest price, which is much cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is actually closer to shared web hosting packages as far as pricing is concerned.

Sorts of VPS

Just like any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ depending on various features, but the OS is maybe the most significant difference. Here we have the two most essential types:

Windows VPS - a virtual server hosting system running Windows that will permit applications which need Windows to operate smoothly to be activated on the virtual server.

Linux VPS - a Virtual Private Server system running Linux is the more commonly used type that you can come across on the Internet because it is cheaper to establish and maintain and hence it is more wanted.

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

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

VPS reseller - the reseller actually buys whole VPS packages to offer them to the clients instead of selling shared web hosting packages on one single virtual private hosting server. It is considered more profitable but also demands more initial investments to buy the virtual hosting server.

Just as any other web hosting type, VPS packages regularly involve a LAMP solution stack. LAMP means Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines three more private virtual web server types:

VPS with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is very famous and was the first to pass the 100 million website milestone back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with VPS web servers too.

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

VPS with PHP - PHP is a programming language preferred by web developers, hence it is popular with various web hosting solutions, including virtual web server hosting ones.
