Today it has become very easy to launch a web page on your own with all the free-of-cost web site templates that are available on the Internet along with cost-free web apps that are applicable even for newbies. Hence, many brand new sites go live each day, including online blogs - where the author can reflect on a variety of issues that spring to mind, and picture galleries - where everybody can display images and the stories behind them on the World Wide Web. These websites must be hosted somewhere and one apt web hosting choice is a VPS.

What is a VPS?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated web server in terms of administration as you receive complete root access with a possibility to restart the Virtual Private Server distantly. The VPS shares resources with other VPS web hosting servers that are hosted on the very same physical server. This results in a very moderate price, which is much cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is actually more related to shared web hosting plans in terms of prices.

Sorts of VPS

Just like any other web hosting variety, Virtual Servers may vary based on various features, but the OS is perhaps the most noticeable difference. Here we have the 2 most important varieties:

Windows VPS - a virtual private hosting server platform running Windows that will allow software apps which need Windows to function unproblematically to be activated on the virtual private web server.

Linux VPS - a virtual private web hosting server platform running Linux is the more widely used type that you can encounter on the Internet because it is cheaper to put together and administer and so it is more wanted.

VPS servers are also very popular with resellers and you can discover 2 modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS reseller - the reseller buys a VPS hosting server and starts selling shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the Virtual Private Server. It is comparable to the regular reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller has full server root access and can update the web server's configuration.

VPS reseller - the reseller actually purchases entire VPS packages to offer them to the clients rather than offering shared web hosting plans on a single VPS. It is deemed more lucrative but also requests more initial investments to purchase the virtual web hosting server.

Just as any other web hosting variety, VPS packages regularly entail a LAMP platform. LAMP signifies Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more virtual private hosting server types:

VPS with the Apache web server - the Apache web server is quite popular and was the first to surpass the one hundred million web site benchmark back in 2009, so it is normally utilized with virtual private web hosting servers as well.

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

VPS with PHP - PHP is a scripting language designed for web development, thus it is popular with different web hosting solutions, incl. virtual server hosting ones.
