What In Fact is VPS web hosting?

Today it has become quite easy to design a site on your own with all the free-of-cost web skins that are obtainable on the Internet together with charge-free software apps that are applicable even for novices. Thus, a lot of new sites are being created each and every day, incl. blogs - where the moderator can debate on various topics that suggest themselves, and picture galleries - where individuals can post pictures and the stories behind them on the web. These websites must be hosted someplace and one good web hosting option is a VPS web hosting.

What is a VPS web hosting?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated server in terms of management since you are offered full server root access with a possibility to reboot the virtual hosting server remotely. The VPS web hosting shares resources with other private virtual hosting servers that are hosted on the very same physical server. This is reflected in the very cheap price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually more comparable to shared web hosting plans as far as pricing is concerned.

Sorts of VPS Web Hosting

Just like any other web hosting type, Virtual Servers may differ on the basis of different features, but the OS is maybe the most perceptible difference. Here are the two most important types:

Windows VPS web hosting - a VPS system running Windows that will permit apps which require Windows to operate unproblematically to be installed on the VPS server.

Linux VPS web hosting - a VPS system running Linux is the more commonly used variety that you can chance on on the Internet since it is cheaper to put together and maintain and so it is more wanted.

VPS servers are also quite sought after by resellers and you can find 2 modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a virtual hosting server and starts offering shared packages that are hosted on the virtual web server. It is similar to the traditional reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller obtains full root privileges and can update the web server's configuration.

VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller in fact buys entire VPS web hosting packages to sell them to the customers instead of offering shared web hosting packages on a single VPS web hosting server. It is deemed more cost-effective but also necessitates more initial deposits to purchase the virtual private web hosting server.

Just like any other web hosting type, VPS web hosting plans regularly entail a LAMP stack. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more private virtual server web hosting varieties:

VPS web hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is very famous and was the first to pass the 100 000 000 website mark back in 2009, so it is normally popular with virtual servers too.

VPS web hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system used with lots of applications and hence frequently wanted on a VPS web hosting server.

VPS web hosting with PHP - PHP is a script language preferred by web developers, so it is popular with various web hosting solutions, including VPS hosting ones.
