What is VPS hosting?

Now it has become very easy to create an online portal on your own with all the free-of-charge web templates that are obtainable on the Internet along with cost-free software apps that are appropriate even for newcomers. So, plenty of new sites come into existence each day, among them weblogs - where the moderator can focus on various topics that suggest themselves, and web galleries - where individuals can publish pics and the history behind them on the Internet. These websites must be hosted somewhere and one prudent web hosting alternative is a VPS.

What is a VPS?

VPS means Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated web hosting server as far as administration is concerned since you obtain complete root-level access with an option to reboot the virtual private hosting server from a distance. The VPS shares system resources with other private virtual web hosting servers that are accommodated on the very same physical machine. This results in a very inexpensive price, which is much lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more comparable to shared plans as far as prices are concerned.

Types of VPS

Just like any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may differ depending on various features, but the Operating System is probably the most noticeable distinction. Here are the 2 most essential types:

Windows VPS - a VPS server platform running Windows that will allow applications which require Windows to perform smoothly to be activated on the virtual hosting server.

Linux VPS - a private virtual server web hosting platform running Linux is the more famous type that you can discover on the web as it is cheaper to construct and handle and so it is more sought after.

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

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

VPS reseller - the reseller in fact purchases whole VPS plans to sell them to the customers instead of selling shared web hosting accounts on one single private virtual web hosting server. It is considered more profitable but also calls for more initial payments to buy the virtual hosting server.

Just as any other web hosting variety, VPS packages frequently entail a LAMP software bundle. LAMP signifies Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces three more Virtual Private Server hosting types:

VPS with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is quite famous and was the first to pass the one hundred million web site milestone back in 2009, so it is naturally used with virtual web servers too.

VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system used with lots of applications and hence regularly requested on a private virtual hosting server.

VPS with PHP - PHP is a script language utilized by web developers, so it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, incl. VPS hosting ones.
