Explanation of VPS

These days it has become very easy to establish a web portal by yourself with all the free-of-cost web page templates that are available on the Internet together with free software applications that are suitable even for inexperienced users. Thus, numerous brand new sites are being launched every day, incl. blogs - where the author can discuss different issues that come to mind, and web galleries - where everybody can display pictures and the stories behind them on the World Wide Web. These web sites must be hosted someplace and one intelligent web hosting alternative is a VPS.

What is a VPS?

VPS denotes Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated hosting server as far as administration is concerned because you are offered full server root access with a possibility to restart the private virtual hosting server distantly. The VPS shares system resources with other VPS web servers that are hosted on the very same physical machine. This is reflected in the remarkably low price, which is much lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually more comparable to shared plans in terms of prices.

Sorts of VPS

Just as any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may vary based on different features, but the OS is maybe the most apparent difference. Here are the 2 most important types:

Windows VPS - a VPS hosting system running Windows that will permit apps which require Windows to function properly to be activated on the private virtual web server.

Linux VPS - a VPS server web hosting platform running Linux is the more widespread variety that you can chance on on the web as it is cheaper to build and maintain and so it is more wanted.

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

VPS reseller - the reseller buys a VPS web hosting server and starts offering shared hosting plans that are hosted on the VPS hosting server. It is comparable to the standard reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller gains complete root-level access and can update the web server's configuration.

VPS reseller - the reseller in fact buys whole VPS plans to sell them to the customers rather than offering shared web hosting packages on a single VPS server. It is considered more profitable but also demands more initial deposits to buy the virtual private web server.

Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS packages regularly entail a LAMP software suite. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces three more VPS hosting server varieties:

VPS with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is very popular and was the first to exceed the 100 million web site mark back in 2009, so it is normally used with Virtual Private Servers too.

VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system utilized with a lot of apps and thus often requested on a virtual private web hosting server.

VPS with PHP - PHP is a programming language utilized by web developers, hence it is popular with different web hosting solutions, including private virtual server web hosting ones.
