What are VPSs?
Now it has become very easy to set up an online portal on your own with all the charge-free templates that are available on the web along with free-of-charge software applications that are good even for novices. Hence, numerous brand new websites are being launched each and every day, including online blogs - where the author can focus on a variety of topics that suggest themselves, and photo galleries - where users can display pics and the history behind them on the web. These websites must be hosted someplace and one suitable web hosting option is a VPS.
What is a VPS?
VPS means Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated hosting server as far as administration is concerned as you have full root access with an option to reboot the VPS web server remotely. The VPS shares system resources with other virtual servers that are hosted on the same physical server. This is reflected in the quite inexpensive price, which is much lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more related to shared web hosting plans as far as prices are concerned.
Sorts of VPS
Just as any other web hosting variety, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of various features, but the OS is perchance the most prominent difference. Here we have the 2 most essential types:
Windows VPS - a virtual web server system running Windows that will permit software applications which need Windows to function smoothly to be installed on the private virtual server.
Linux VPS - a virtual server hosting platform running Linux is the more popular variety that you can stumble upon on the Internet as it is cheaper to erect and handle and thus it is more sought after.
VPS servers are also quite sought after by resellers and you can discover 2 modes of reselling a VPS:
VPS reseller - the reseller purchases a private virtual hosting server and starts selling shared web hosting plans that are hosted on the virtual web hosting server. It is comparable to the regular reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller receives full server root privileges and can revise the web server's configuration.
VPS reseller - the reseller in fact purchases entire VPS plans to sell them to the customers instead of offering shared web hosting plans on one single virtual web server. It is deemed more profitable but also necessitates more introductory contributions to buy the virtual web hosting server.
Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS packages often involve a LAMP platform. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines three more VPS server hosting varieties:
VPS with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is quite popular and was the first to hit the 100 000 000 website milestone back in 2009, so it is logically used with virtual web servers too.
VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular relational database management system used with many web apps and hence often wanted on a virtual web server.
VPS with PHP - PHP is a scripting language used by web developers, hence it is popular with different web hosting solutions, incl. VPS web server hosting ones.
