VPS Hosting Explained

Nowadays it has become very easy to establish an online portal by yourself with all the free-of-charge templates that are available on the World Wide Web along with free-of-cost web platforms that are good even for beginners. Hence, a lot of new sites go live each day, incl. blogs - where the moderator can reflect on different issues that suggest themselves, and web galleries - where users can publish images and the history behind them on the Internet. These websites must be hosted somewhere and one relevant web hosting option is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS signifies Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated hosting server in terms of administration as you are provided with full server root access with an option to reboot the private virtual web hosting server from a distance. The VPS hosting shares resources with other virtual private web hosting servers that are accommodated on the same physical server. This is reflected in the remarkably low price, which is a lot cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more akin to shared web hosting packages in terms of pricing.

Types of VPS Hosting

Just as any other web hosting type, Virtual Servers may differ depending on different features, but the Operating System is maybe the most transparent difference. Here are the two most essential types:

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

Linux VPS hosting - a private virtual web hosting server platform running Linux is the more popular type that you can discover on the Internet since it is more affordable to erect and handle and thus it is more sought after.

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

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller buys a virtual private web hosting server and begins selling shared web hosting packages that are hosted on the VPS hosting server. It is comparable to the traditional reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller obtains full root-level access and can modify the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact purchases entire VPS hosting plans to offer them to the clients rather than selling shared web hosting plans on one single virtual web server. It is deemed more profitable but also demands more initial deposits to buy the virtual private web server.

Just like any other web hosting type, VPS hosting plans frequently involve a LAMP software bundle. LAMP means Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces three more VPS hosting varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is very famous and was the first to surpass the 100 million website milestone back in 2009, so it is normally popular with VPS servers as well.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous database management system utilized with multiple applications and hence frequently wanted on a private virtual web server.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a scripting language used by web developers, thus it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, incl. VPS hosting ones.
