Now it has become very simple to create a site by yourself with all the free-of-cost design templates that are obtainable on the Internet along with charge-free web platforms that are applicable even for inexperienced customers. Thus, a lot of brand new websites are being launched every day, incl. blogs - where the author can discuss various topics that suggest themselves, and web galleries - where everybody can share pics and the stories behind them on the web. These web sites must be hosted someplace and one excellent web hosting option is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it works like a dedicated hosting server in terms of administration because you have full root access with a possibility to restart the virtual web server distantly. The VPS hosting shares system resources with other private virtual web servers that are accommodated on the very same physical server. This results in a very inexpensive price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually closer to shared web hosting packages as far as prices are concerned.

Types of VPS Hosting

Just as any other web hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ depending on different features, but the OS is probably the most essential difference. Here are the two most important types:

Windows VPS hosting - a VPS server hosting system running Windows that will permit applications which require Windows to function properly to be activated on the Virtual Private Server.

Linux VPS hosting - a Virtual Private Server web hosting system running Linux is the more commonly used variety that you can find on the World Wide Web because it is more affordable to put together and administer and therefore it is more sought after.

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

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller buys a private virtual hosting server and begins offering shared web hosting plans that are hosted on the VPS server. It is akin to the standard reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller gets complete root-level access and can update the server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact buys whole VPS hosting plans to sell them to the clients rather than offering shared web hosting accounts on a single virtual server. It is deemed more profitable but also demands more initial contributions to buy the virtual web server.

Just as any other web hosting type, VPS hosting packages regularly entail a LAMP solution stack. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines three more virtual web server hosting varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is very popular and was the first to reach the one hundred million website mark back in 2009, so it is logically used with VPS web hosting servers too.

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

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a programming language designed for web development, thus it is popular with different web hosting solutions, incl. VPS hosting ones.
