What Actually is VPS web hosting?
Nowadays it has become very easy to set up a site on your own with all the charge-free web design templates that are available on the World Wide Web together with cost-free web apps that are applicable even for inexperienced clients. Hence, multiple new web sites are being launched each and every day, including weblogs - where the author can touch upon various issues that suggest themselves, and picture galleries - where everyone can display photographs and the stories behind them on the World Wide Web. These web sites must be hosted somewhere and one intelligent web hosting alternative is a VPS web hosting.
What is a VPS web hosting?
VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated web hosting server as far as administration is concerned as you obtain full server root privileges with a possibility to reboot the virtual web hosting server from a distance. The VPS web hosting shares resources with other private virtual web hosting servers that are hosted on the very same physical server. This is reflected in the quite moderate price, which is a lot cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more comparable to shared plans as far as pricing is concerned.
Kinds of VPS Web Hosting
Just as any other web hosting type, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of different features, but the OS is probably the most obvious distinction. Here we have the 2 most essential types:
Windows VPS web hosting - a private virtual server hosting system running Windows that will allow software applications which require Windows to run unproblematically to be installed on the VPS.
Linux VPS web hosting - a private virtual hosting server system running Linux is the more commonly used variety that you can chance on on the World Wide Web as it is more affordable to assemble and handle and thus it is more sought after.
VPS servers are also very popular with resellers and you can find two modes of reselling a VPS:
VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a private virtual web hosting server and starts selling shared plans that are hosted on the virtual server. It is comparable to the regular reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller is provided with root access and can update the web server's configuration.
VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller in fact buys entire VPS web hosting packages to offer them to the clients rather than selling shared web hosting packages on a single virtual web hosting server. It is considered more lucrative but also demands more initial payments to buy the virtual web server.
Just as any other web hosting variety, VPS web hosting plans frequently entail a LAMP software platform. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more private virtual server web hosting varieties:
VPS web hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server is very popular and was the first to exceed the 100 million web site mark back in 2009, so it is naturally used with private virtual hosting servers too.
VPS web hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system used with many apps and therefore often wanted on a VPS server.
VPS web hosting with PHP - PHP is a programming language designed for web development, so it is popular with various web hosting solutions, incl. VPS web hosting ones.
