Now it has become quite simple to build a website by yourself with all the free-of-cost web themes that are available on the web along with cost-free web platforms that are suitable even for newcomers. Thus, many new sites are born each day, incl. online blogs - where the moderator can reflect on a variety of topics that cross his minds, and image galleries - where individuals can share pictures and the stories behind them on the Internet. These websites must be hosted someplace and one apt web hosting choice is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated server as far as management is concerned as you are granted root-level access with an option to restart the VPS web server distantly. The VPS hosting shares resources with other VPS hosting servers that are hosted on the very same physical server. This is reflected in the quite cheap price, which is a lot cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more related to shared website hosting plans as far as pricing is concerned.

Kinds of VPS Hosting

Just as any other web hosting type, Virtual Servers may differ based on various features, but the Operating System is perchance the most evident distinction. Here are the 2 most important varieties:

Windows VPS hosting - a private virtual web hosting server platform running Windows that will allow apps which require Windows to operate properly to be activated on the VPS hosting server.

Linux VPS hosting - a private virtual hosting server system running Linux is the more widespread variety that you can encounter on the web as it is more affordable to set up and administer and so it is more sought after.

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

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a virtual hosting server and begins selling shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the VPS web server. It is comparable to the conventional reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller is given full server root privileges and can modify the server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact buys whole VPS hosting plans to offer them to the clients instead of offering shared web hosting plans on a single VPS server. It is considered more lucrative but also calls for more initial payments to purchase the VPS.

Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS hosting packages frequently involve a LAMP software suite. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more virtual private web server varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is very popular and was the first to pass the 100 million website benchmark back in 2009, so it is naturally used with VPS web servers too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous database management system utilized with many apps and hence frequently requested on a virtual private web hosting server.

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