These websites must be hosted someplace and one clever web hosting alternative is a VPS.
What is a VPS?
VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated hosting server in terms of management because you have complete server root access with an option to reboot the virtual web hosting server remotely. The VPS shares resources with other private virtual servers that are accommodated on the same physical server. This is reflected in the very affordable price, which is several times lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually closer to shared hosting plans in terms of prices.
Kinds of VPS
Just as any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may differ depending on various features, but the OS is perchance the most prominent distinction. Here are the 2 most essential types:
Windows VPS - a private virtual server web hosting system running Windows that will permit software apps which need Windows to perform unproblematically to be activated on the virtual web server.
Linux VPS - a Virtual Private Server web hosting platform running Linux is the more widespread type that you can stumble upon on the Internet because it is cheaper to build and administer and hence 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 purchases a VPS hosting server and begins offering shared web hosting packages that are hosted on the virtual web hosting server. It is similar to the ordinary reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller gets full root access and can alter the server's configuration.
VPS reseller - the reseller in fact purchases whole VPS packages to offer them to the clients rather than selling shared web hosting plans on one single virtual server. It is deemed more remunerative but also demands more introductory investments to purchase the virtual private web hosting server.
Just as any other web hosting type, VPS plans frequently involve a LAMP software stack. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces three more private virtual web server hosting varieties:
VPS with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is quite popular and was the first to hit the one hundred million web site benchmark back in 2009, so it is naturally used with virtual web hosting servers as well.
VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system utilized with lots of web apps and thus regularly requested on a virtual server.
VPS with PHP - PHP is a script language preferred by web developers, hence it is popular with various web hosting solutions, incl. VPS server hosting ones.
