These days it has become quite simple to construct a web page on your own with all the free web site themes that are obtainable on the World Wide Web together with free software applications that are suitable even for inexperienced clients. Thus, multiple brand new websites go live each and every day, incl. blogs - where the moderator can concentrate on different topics that suggest themselves, and image galleries - where people can share images and the history behind them on the World Wide Web. These websites must be hosted somewhere and one suitable web hosting choice is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS denotes Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated hosting server in terms of administration since you are granted full root access with an option to reboot the private virtual web hosting server distantly. The VPS hosting shares resources with other virtual private web servers that are accommodated on the same physical server. This results in a remarkably modest price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more akin to shared hosting plans as far as prices are concerned.

Kinds of VPS Hosting

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

Windows VPS hosting - a virtual private web hosting server platform running Windows that will allow apps which require Windows to function smoothly to be installed on the private virtual server.

Linux VPS hosting - a virtual web server hosting system running Linux is the more famous type that you can come across on the web since it is cheaper to erect and handle and thus it is more sought after.

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

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller buys a VPS server and begins selling shared web hosting plans that are hosted on the VPS server. It is akin to the standard reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller receives root privileges and can modify the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact buys entire VPS hosting plans to sell them to the clients rather than offering shared web hosting packages on one single virtual server. It is considered more remunerative but also demands more introductory deposits to buy the private virtual server.

Just as any other web hosting type, VPS hosting packages often entail a LAMP software suite. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more Virtual Private Server web hosting varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is very famous and was the first to exceed the 100 000 000 website benchmark back in 2009, so it is logically popular with virtual private hosting servers as well.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular relational database management system used with lots of applications and hence often wanted on a VPS hosting server.

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