Nowadays it has become quite simple to make a web page on your own with all the free web site templates that are available on the World Wide Web along with free web applications that are applicable even for beginners. Therefore, plenty of new sites are being built each day, incl. blogs - where the moderator can touch upon various issues that occur to him, and picture galleries - where everybody can publish pics and the history behind them on the World Wide Web. These sites must be hosted someplace and one clever web hosting alternative is a VPS.

What is a VPS?

VPS signifies Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated hosting server as far as administration is concerned since you are given complete root access with an option to restart the VPS server distantly. The VPS shares resources with other private virtual hosting servers that are accommodated on the very same physical server. This results in a very low price, which is several times lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually more akin to shared web hosting packages in terms of prices.

Types of VPS

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

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

Linux VPS - a VPS server platform running Linux is the more popular variety that you can discover on the web as it is more affordable to build and maintain and so it is more sought after.

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

VPS reseller - the reseller buys a virtual web hosting server and begins selling shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the VPS web server. It is akin to the regular reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller has full root-level access and can alter the server's configuration.

VPS reseller - the reseller actually purchases entire VPS packages to offer them to the customers rather than selling shared web hosting packages on one single virtual server. It is deemed more remunerative but also requires more initial contributions to purchase the VPS.

Just as any other web hosting type, VPS plans regularly involve a LAMP platform. LAMP signifies Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more VPS web 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 mark back in 2009, so it is normally used with private virtual web hosting servers as well.

VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system utilized with lots of web apps and therefore regularly wanted on a VPS web hosting server.

VPS with PHP - PHP is a script language preferred by web developers, so it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, including VPS web server hosting ones.
