VPS Hosting Unveiled

Nowadays it has become quite simple to kick off a website by yourself with all the free site themes that are available on the web together with free-of-cost web applications that are good even for inexperienced customers. Hence, lots of brand new web sites are being launched every day, incl. blogs - where the author can tackle various issues that occur to him, and image galleries - where persons can display images and the history behind them on the World Wide Web. These websites must be hosted someplace and one apt web hosting alternative is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated hosting server in terms of management because you get full root-level access with an option to reboot the VPS web hosting server from a distance. The VPS hosting shares system resources with other VPSs that are hosted on the same physical machine. This results in a quite reasonable price, which is several times cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is in fact closer to shared web hosting packages in terms of pricing.

Sorts of VPS Hosting

Just like any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may vary depending on various features, but the Operating System is perhaps the most obvious difference. Here are the 2 most essential types:

Windows VPS hosting - a private virtual web server system running Windows that will allow apps which need Windows to operate smoothly to be activated on the virtual hosting server.

Linux VPS hosting - a private virtual web hosting server platform running Linux is the more popular type that you can stumble upon on the Internet as it is more affordable to build and handle and hence it is more wanted.

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

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a VPS hosting server and begins selling shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the private virtual web hosting server. It is similar to the standard reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller is offered complete root access and can revise the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact purchases whole VPS hosting plans to sell them to the customers instead of selling shared web hosting plans on one single virtual private web server. It is deemed more lucrative but also calls for more initial contributions to buy the virtual web hosting server.

Just like any other web hosting type, VPS hosting plans regularly involve a LAMP software bundle. LAMP means Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more virtual server web hosting types:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is quite famous and was the first to surpass the 100 000 000 website milestone back in 2009, so it is normally utilized with virtual servers too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system utilized with a lot of applications and hence often wanted on a VPS web hosting server.

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