What Does VPS Hosting Mean?
Now it has become quite easy to build a web portal by yourself with all the free-of-charge design skins that are available on the Internet together with free-of-cost software apps that are good even for inexperienced users. Thus, many brand new websites go live each and every day, including blogs - where the moderator can tackle a variety of topics that cross his minds, and online galleries - where people can display pictures and the stories behind them online. These websites must be hosted somewhere and one prudent web hosting choice is a VPS.
What is a VPS?
VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated web hosting server as far as administration is concerned since you receive full root access with a possibility to restart the private virtual web server from a distance. The VPS shares system resources with other virtual hosting servers that are accommodated on the very same physical machine. This is reflected in the remarkably low price, which is several times cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is actually more akin to shared web hosting packages in terms of prices.
Types of VPS
Just as any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may differ on the basis of different features, but the OS is perhaps the most important difference. Here we have the two most important varieties:
Windows VPS - a private virtual server hosting system running Windows that will permit software applications which require Windows to function smoothly to be installed on the VPS hosting server.
Linux VPS - a VPS hosting server platform running Linux is the more popular type that you can discover on the Internet since it is cheaper to construct and maintain and therefore it is more sought after.
VPS servers are also very popular with resellers and you can discover two modes of reselling a VPS:
VPS reseller - the reseller buys a virtual web hosting server and starts offering shared web hosting packages that are hosted on the virtual server. It is similar to the regular reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller is given full root privileges and can revise the server's configuration.
VPS reseller - the reseller in fact purchases whole VPS packages to sell them to the clients rather than selling shared web hosting plans on one single virtual web hosting server. It is considered more lucrative but also demands more introductory payments to buy the VPS web hosting server.
Just like any other web hosting type, VPS plans often entail a LAMP solution stack. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more virtual private hosting server types:
VPS with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server is quite famous and was the first to surpass the one hundred million website milestone back in 2009, so it is naturally utilized with VPS hosting servers as well.
VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous database management system utilized with numerous web apps and thus often requested on a virtual web server.
VPS with PHP - PHP is a programming language used by web developers, thus it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, incl. VPS server hosting ones.
