Description of VPS Hosting Services

Now it has become quite easy to create a web page on your own with all the free-of-cost site layouts that are available on the web together with free software apps that are appropriate even for inexperienced customers. Therefore, numerous new sites go live each day, including blogs - where the author can comment on a variety of topics that occur to him, and photo galleries - where everyone can publish images and the stories behind them on the web. These websites must be hosted someplace and one excellent web hosting option is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated hosting server as far as management is concerned since you are offered full server root access with an option to restart the VPS web hosting server distantly. The VPS hosting shares system resources with other private virtual web hosting servers that are accommodated on the very same physical machine. This is reflected in the very reasonable price, which is a lot cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is actually more related to shared web hosting packages as far as prices are concerned.

Types of VPS Hosting

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

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

Linux VPS hosting - a VPS server platform running Linux is the more widespread type that you can discover on the World Wide Web since it is more affordable to establish and handle and hence it is more sought after.

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

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller buys a private virtual web server and starts selling shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the VPS hosting server. It is comparable to the ordinary reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller is given full server root access and can change the server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller actually purchases entire VPS hosting plans to offer them to the customers rather than offering shared web hosting packages on a single VPS hosting server. It is considered more cost-effective but also calls for more introductory contributions to purchase the virtual private web server.

Just like any other web hosting type, VPS hosting plans frequently entail a LAMP stack. LAMP stands for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines three more VPS types:

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 web site benchmark back in 2009, so it is logically used with VPSs too.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous database management system used with a lot of applications and thus frequently requested on a virtual private hosting server.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a scripting language preferred by web developers, hence it is popular with different web hosting solutions, including virtual server hosting ones.
