These days it has become quite easy to set up an online portal by yourself with all the free-of-charge layouts that are available on the web along with cost-free web platforms that are good even for novices. Therefore, many new websites are being built each day, among them weblogs - where the author can concentrate on different issues that come to mind, and photo galleries - where everyone can post photographs and the stories behind them on the Internet. These websites must be hosted somewhere and one good web hosting option is a VPS web hosting.

What is a VPS web hosting?

VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it works like a dedicated web server in terms of administration since you are granted complete root-level access with a possibility to reboot the private virtual web hosting server distantly. The VPS web hosting shares system resources with other Virtual Private Servers that are hosted on the same physical server. This is reflected in the very inexpensive price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact closer to shared website hosting packages in terms of pricing.

Types of VPS Web Hosting

Just like any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ on the basis of various features, but the Operating System is possibly the most perceptible distinction. Here we have the 2 most important varieties:

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

Linux VPS web hosting - a virtual server web hosting platform running Linux is the more popular type that you can stumble upon on the Internet as it is cheaper to build and maintain and therefore it is more sought after.

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

VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a virtual private hosting server and starts offering shared web hosting plans that are hosted on the virtual private hosting server. It is comparable to the ordinary reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller is provided with complete root-level access and can modify the web server's configuration.

VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller actually purchases whole VPS web hosting packages to offer them to the clients instead of offering shared web hosting packages on a single private virtual hosting server. It is considered more remunerative but also necessitates more initial contributions to buy the virtual web hosting server.

Just like any other web hosting type, VPS web hosting plans regularly involve a LAMP software solution stack. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more VPS web hosting types:

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

VPS web hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular relational database management system used with many web applications and therefore often requested on a virtual hosting server.

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