Now it has become very easy to develop a site on your own with all the free-of-cost website layouts that are obtainable on the World Wide Web together with free-of-charge web platforms that are appropriate even for newbies. Thus, a lot of brand new sites are being created each and every day, including online blogs - where the author can tackle different issues that come to mind, and image galleries - where everybody can display pics and the stories behind them on the World Wide Web. These web sites must be hosted somewhere and one reasonable web hosting option is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated server as far as administration is concerned since you get complete root access with a possibility to restart the private virtual hosting server distantly. The VPS hosting shares resources with other VPS web hosting servers that are hosted on the very same physical machine. This is reflected in the quite reasonable price, which is much lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more comparable to shared hosting plans in terms of pricing.

Sorts of VPS Hosting

Just as any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ on the basis of various features, but the Operating System is perchance the most obvious distinction. Here we have the 2 most essential varieties:

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

Linux VPS hosting - a private virtual web server platform running Linux is the more commonly used variety that you can find on the World Wide Web because it is more affordable to establish and handle and hence 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 private hosting server and starts offering shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the VPS web hosting server. It is comparable to the regular reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller has complete server root access and can change the server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller actually buys whole VPS hosting plans to sell them to the clients rather than offering shared web hosting accounts on a single private virtual web server. It is considered more cost-effective but also necessitates more initial payments to buy the private virtual web server.

Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS hosting packages frequently entail a LAMP middleware stack. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more VPS server hosting types:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is very famous and was the first to exceed the 100 million web site mark back in 2009, so it is logically popular with private virtual web servers too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system utilized with a lot of web applications and therefore frequently wanted on a VPS web hosting server.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a programming language designed for web development, thus it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, including private virtual web server hosting ones.
