Nowadays it has become quite easy to develop an online portal by yourself with all the charge-free design templates that are available on the Internet along with free-of-cost software applications that are appropriate even for inexperienced customers. Thus, multiple brand new websites are being built each day, including online blogs - where the moderator can comment on a variety of topics that spring to mind, and image galleries - where everybody can display photos and the history behind them on the web. These sites must be hosted someplace and one intelligent web hosting option is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated web hosting server in terms of management since you gain complete root-level access with a possibility to reboot the VPS web hosting server from a distance. The VPS hosting shares resources with other virtual servers that are hosted on the same physical machine. This is reflected in the quite low price, which is a lot cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is actually closer to shared website hosting packages in terms of pricing.

Sorts of VPS Hosting

Just as any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of different features, but the Operating System is perhaps the most perceptible difference. Here we have the 2 most important types:

Windows VPS hosting - a virtual server web hosting system running Windows that will permit software applications which require Windows to run smoothly to be activated on the virtual hosting server.

Linux VPS hosting - a VPS web hosting platform running Linux is the more famous variety that you can find on the web as it is more affordable to build and maintain and thus it is more sought after.

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

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a VPS web hosting server and starts selling shared website hosting plans that are hosted on the Virtual Private Server. It is akin to the ordinary reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller is granted full root privileges and can revise the server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller actually buys entire VPS hosting packages to sell them to the customers rather than selling shared web hosting plans on a single VPS web server. It is considered more profitable but also demands more initial contributions to purchase the virtual private web hosting server.

Just like any other web hosting type, VPS hosting plans often entail a LAMP solution stack. LAMP signifies Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more virtual web server varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server is very popular and was the first to reach the 100 million web site benchmark back in 2009, so it is naturally utilized with private virtual servers too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular relational database management system used with lots of apps and therefore often requested on a VPS web hosting server.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a scripting language used by web developers, thus it is popular with various web hosting solutions, incl. private virtual server hosting ones.
