VPS signifies Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated hosting server in terms of administration as you gain full server root access with a possibility to restart the virtual hosting server distantly. The VPS hosting shares system resources with other virtual private web servers that are accommodated on the same physical machine. This results in a very low price, which is several times cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more comparable to shared web hosting packages as far as pricing is concerned.

Kinds of VPS Hosting

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

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

Linux VPS hosting - a virtual web server system running Linux is the more famous variety that you can come across on the World Wide Web because it is cheaper to erect and maintain and so it is more wanted.

VPS servers are also quite popular with resellers and you can discover 2 modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a virtual private web hosting server and begins selling shared web hosting packages that are hosted on the private virtual web hosting server. It is similar to the regular reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller obtains full root access and can alter the server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller in fact buys entire VPS hosting packages to sell them to the clients instead of offering shared web hosting plans on a single virtual private web server. It is deemed more lucrative but also needs more initial contributions to purchase the VPS hosting server.

Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS hosting packages regularly involve a LAMP stack. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more VPS hosting types:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is quite famous and was the first to pass the 100 million website mark back in 2009, so it is normally utilized with VPSs too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular relational database management system utilized with multiple web applications and therefore regularly requested on a VPS.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a script language designed for web development, so it is popular with various web hosting solutions, incl. private virtual server hosting ones.
