Now it has become quite simple to create an online portal by yourself with all the free themes that are obtainable on the web along with charge-free web apps that are applicable even for newbies. So, multiple new web sites go live every day, among them blogs - where the moderator can debate on different topics that occur to him, and web galleries - where everyone can post pictures and the stories behind them on the World Wide Web. These websites must be hosted someplace and one appropriate web hosting choice is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated hosting server in terms of administration as you are offered complete root access with an option to reboot the virtual hosting server from a distance. The VPS hosting shares resources with other private virtual web servers that are hosted on the same physical machine. This is reflected in the very affordable price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually more comparable to shared plans in terms of pricing.

Kinds of VPS Hosting

Just as any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of various features, but the OS is maybe the most perceptible distinction. Here we have the two most important types:

Windows VPS hosting - a virtual web hosting server platform running Windows that will permit software applications which need Windows to perform smoothly to be installed on the virtual private hosting server.

Linux VPS hosting - a Virtual Private Server platform running Linux is the more famous type that you can find on the web since it is cheaper to construct and handle and therefore it is more wanted.

VPS servers are also very popular with resellers and you can discover two modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a private virtual hosting server and begins selling shared web hosting packages that are hosted on the VPS server. It is comparable to the conventional reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller is provided with full server root access and can change the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller actually buys entire VPS hosting packages to sell them to the customers instead of selling shared web hosting accounts on a single VPS hosting server. It is deemed more profitable but also necessitates more initial deposits to purchase the virtual web hosting server.

Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS hosting packages often involve a LAMP software solution stack. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more private virtual web server varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is very popular and was the first to reach the one hundred million website benchmark back in 2009, so it is naturally popular with private virtual hosting servers too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous database management system used with lots of web apps and therefore often wanted on a virtual hosting server.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a programming language preferred by web developers, thus it is popular with different web hosting solutions, incl. virtual private web server hosting ones.
