Nowadays it has become quite easy to make a web site on your own with all the charge-free web site skins that are available on the Internet together with cost-free web applications that are suitable even for newcomers. Thus, multiple brand new websites go live each day, among them weblogs - where the moderator can discuss various topics that occur to him, and picture galleries - where individuals can post pictures and the history behind them on the World Wide Web. These sites must be hosted somewhere and one excellent web hosting alternative is a VPS.

What is a VPS?

VPS means Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated web server as far as administration is concerned as you gain complete root access with a possibility to reboot the private virtual web hosting server remotely. The VPS shares resources with other VPS web hosting servers that are accommodated on the very same physical machine. This results in a quite moderate price, which is much lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more related to shared hosting packages as far as prices are concerned.

Types of VPS

Just like any other web hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ based on various features, but the OS is maybe the most noticeable distinction. Here we have the 2 most essential types:

Windows VPS - a virtual server platform running Windows that will permit apps which require Windows to run smoothly to be activated on the virtual private web hosting server.

Linux VPS - a virtual private web hosting server platform running Linux is the more commonly used variety that you can come across on the Internet since it is cheaper to construct and handle and so it is more wanted.

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

VPS reseller - the reseller buys a private virtual hosting server and begins offering shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the private virtual server. It is similar to the ordinary reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller obtains full root-level access and can update the server's configuration.

VPS reseller - the reseller actually buys whole VPS packages to offer them to the clients rather than offering shared web hosting packages on one single virtual private web hosting server. It is deemed more lucrative but also requires more introductory investments to buy the private virtual web server.

Just as any other web hosting type, VPS plans regularly entail a LAMP software bundle. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines three more private virtual server web hosting types:

VPS with the Apache web server - the Apache web server is very popular and was the first to exceed the 100 million web site mark back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with virtual private web servers as well.

VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous database management system utilized with numerous web apps and thus frequently wanted on a private virtual web server.

VPS with PHP - PHP is a scripting language used by web developers, so it is popular with various web hosting solutions, incl. VPS web server hosting ones.
