Description of VPS hosting
Today it has become very easy to design a web portal by yourself with all the charge-free site layouts that are obtainable on the World Wide Web along with free web apps that are applicable even for newbies. Thus, lots of brand new sites start to operate each day, including online blogs - where the author can reflect on a variety of issues that occur to him, and image galleries - where everybody can publish photographs and the history behind them on the web. These websites must be hosted somewhere and one excellent web hosting choice is a VPS.
What is a VPS?
VPS signifies Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated web hosting server as far as administration is concerned as you are granted root privileges with an option to restart the private virtual server remotely. The VPS shares resources with other private virtual servers that are hosted on the very same physical server. This results in a very reasonable price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually more related to shared hosting plans as far as prices are concerned.
Types of VPS
Just like any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may differ depending on various features, but the Operating System is maybe the most noticeable distinction. Here we have the two most important types:
Windows VPS - a private virtual web server system running Windows that will permit applications which require Windows to function unproblematically to be activated on the VPS server.
Linux VPS - a Virtual Private Server hosting platform running Linux is the more widely used type that you can chance on on the Internet because it is more affordable to assemble and handle and hence it is more wanted.
VPS servers are also very popular with resellers and you can find 2 modes of reselling a VPS:
VPS reseller - the reseller buys a virtual private web server and starts selling shared website hosting plans that are hosted on the VPS. It is similar to the standard reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller receives root-level access and can update the web server's configuration.
VPS reseller - the reseller in fact buys whole VPS packages to offer them to the clients instead of offering shared web hosting packages on a single private virtual web server. It is considered more profitable but also calls for more introductory payments to buy the virtual server.
Just as any other web hosting variety, VPS plans often involve a LAMP software suite. LAMP stands for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more virtual private web server hosting types:
VPS with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server is quite popular and was the first to hit the one hundred million web site benchmark back in 2009, so it is normally used with virtual web hosting servers too.
VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system utilized with multiple apps and therefore regularly wanted on a virtual web hosting server.
VPS with PHP - PHP is a script language used by web developers, hence it is popular with various web hosting solutions, incl. VPS server web hosting ones.
