What Indeed are VPSs?
These days it has become quite simple to kick off a web portal on your own with all the free web site templates that are available on the World Wide Web together with free software platforms that are applicable even for novices. Thus, many brand new websites are being built each and every day, incl. weblogs - where the author can tackle various topics that suggest themselves, and web galleries - where everybody can display photographs and the stories behind them online. These web sites must be hosted somewhere and one prudent web hosting alternative is a VPS.
What is a VPS?
VPS means Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated server as far as management is concerned as you gain full root access with an option to reboot the virtual hosting server distantly. The VPS shares system resources with other VPS servers that are hosted on the same physical machine. This is reflected in the remarkably affordable price, which is several times lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more comparable to shared website hosting plans in terms of pricing.
Sorts of VPS
Just like any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ depending on different features, but the OS is probably the most visible difference. Here are the two most important types:
Windows VPS - a virtual private hosting server platform running Windows that will permit apps which need Windows to operate unproblematically to be installed on the virtual private hosting server.
Linux VPS - a virtual private web server platform running Linux is the more popular variety that you can stumble upon on the World Wide Web because it is more affordable to build and handle and therefore it is more wanted.
VPS servers are also very sought after by resellers and you can come across 2 modes of reselling a VPS:
VPS reseller - the reseller buys a virtual web server and starts selling shared website hosting packages that are hosted on the virtual private hosting server. It is similar to the regular reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller gains complete root access and can change the server's configuration.
VPS reseller - the reseller actually buys whole VPS packages to offer them to the customers rather than selling shared web hosting accounts on one single VPS web hosting server. It is deemed more remunerative but also requires more initial contributions to purchase the VPS.
Just like any other web hosting type, VPS packages regularly entail a LAMP middleware stack. LAMP signifies Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces three more virtual web server hosting varieties:
VPS with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is quite famous and was the first to exceed the one hundred million website milestone back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with VPS web servers as well.
VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system utilized with plenty of apps and hence frequently requested on a VPS hosting server.
VPS with PHP - PHP is a programming language designed for web development, so it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, incl. VPS server web hosting ones.
