Nowadays it has become quite simple to establish a website by yourself with all the charge-free site layouts that are obtainable on the web together with free software applications that are appropriate even for newbies. So, multiple new websites are being created every day, incl. weblogs - where the moderator can discuss a variety of topics that cross his minds, and online galleries - where persons can share pictures and the history behind them on the Internet. These websites must be hosted somewhere and one reasonable web hosting alternative 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 management as you are given full server root access with a possibility to reboot the virtual hosting server from a distance. The VPS hosting shares system resources with other virtual servers that are accommodated on the very same physical machine. This is reflected in the very moderate price, which is several times lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually more similar to shared website hosting plans in terms of pricing.

Types of VPS Hosting

Just as any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may vary depending on different features, but the Operating System is possibly the most notable difference. Here we have the two most important varieties:

Windows VPS hosting - a private virtual server web hosting platform running Windows that will permit applications which need Windows to operate properly to be installed on the VPS web hosting server.

Linux VPS hosting - a private virtual server hosting platform running Linux is the more popular variety that you can encounter on the Internet because it is more affordable to construct and maintain and thus 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 purchases a private virtual hosting server and begins offering shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the VPS web server. It is comparable to the conventional reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller is given full root privileges and can change the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller actually purchases whole VPS hosting plans to sell them to the clients instead of selling shared web hosting packages on one single virtual hosting server. It is deemed more remunerative but also requests more initial deposits to buy the VPS web server.

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

VPS hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is very popular and was the first to surpass the 100 million web site benchmark back in 2009, so it is normally utilized with virtual private hosting servers too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system utilized with a lot of web applications and thus frequently wanted on a virtual private hosting server.

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