Now it has become quite simple to kick off an online portal on your own with all the cost-free web templates that are obtainable on the World Wide Web along with free software platforms that are suitable even for inexperienced clients. Thus, multiple brand new sites start to operate each day, among them blogs - where the author can focus on different topics that cross his minds, and online galleries - where persons can publish images and the stories behind them on the World Wide Web. These sites must be hosted someplace and one appropriate web hosting alternative is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated web hosting server as far as administration is concerned as you get root access with an option to restart the VPS web hosting server remotely. The VPS hosting shares resources with other virtual private hosting servers that are hosted on the same physical server. This results in a remarkably modest price, which is much lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact closer to shared website hosting packages in terms of prices.

Kinds of VPS Hosting

Just as any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may differ depending on various features, but the OS is perhaps the most noticeable difference. Here we have the two most essential varieties:

Windows VPS hosting - a private virtual web server system running Windows that will allow applications which require Windows to run unproblematically to be activated on the private virtual web server.

Linux VPS hosting - a VPS hosting platform running Linux is the more popular variety that you can find on the web since it is cheaper to assemble and administer and so it is more sought after.

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

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller buys a virtual web server and begins offering shared hosting packages that are hosted on the virtual web server. It is akin to the traditional reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller is granted full root access and can modify the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact purchases whole VPS hosting plans to sell them to the customers rather than offering shared web hosting accounts on one single VPS web server. It is deemed more profitable but also requires more initial payments to purchase the private virtual web hosting server.

Just as any other web hosting variety, VPS hosting packages often entail a LAMP middleware stack. LAMP signifies Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines three more VPS server varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is quite popular and was the first to hit the 100 million website milestone back in 2009, so it is normally popular with virtual servers too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system used with numerous web apps and therefore often wanted on a virtual hosting server.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a programming language used by web developers, thus it is popular with different web hosting solutions, including VPS hosting ones.
