Description of VPS
Now it has become quite easy to construct a site on your own with all the free skins that are obtainable on the World Wide Web along with free-of-cost web platforms that are applicable even for novices. Thus, numerous new sites are born each day, among them weblogs - where the moderator can concentrate on different topics that cross his minds, and web galleries - where people can publish photographs and the history behind them on the Internet. These web sites must be hosted someplace and one excellent web hosting option is a VPS.
What is a VPS?
VPS signifies Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated server in terms of administration as you are provided with full root privileges with an option to restart the virtual private web hosting server from a distance. The VPS shares system resources with other virtual servers that are hosted on the very same physical server. This is reflected in the very low price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually closer to shared web hosting packages in terms of pricing.
Kinds of VPS
Just as any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ on the basis of different features, but the OS is possibly the most notable difference. Here are the 2 most important types:
Windows VPS - a private virtual server web hosting platform running Windows that will allow software applications which require Windows to perform smoothly to be activated on the private virtual web hosting server.
Linux VPS - a virtual private web server platform running Linux is the more widely used variety that you can encounter on the World Wide Web because it is more affordable to erect and handle and hence it is more wanted.
VPS servers are also very popular with resellers and you can come across two modes of reselling a VPS:
VPS reseller - the reseller purchases a virtual private hosting server and begins offering shared web hosting plans that are hosted on the VPS server. It is similar to the ordinary reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller receives root privileges and can update the web server's configuration.
VPS reseller - the reseller in fact buys whole VPS plans to offer them to the customers rather than selling shared web hosting packages on a single virtual web server. It is deemed more lucrative but also necessitates more initial contributions to purchase the VPS web hosting server.
Just like any other web hosting type, VPS packages often involve a LAMP middleware stack. LAMP stands for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more virtual server types:
VPS with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is very famous and was the first to reach the 100 million website benchmark back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with private virtual hosting servers too.
VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system utilized with plenty of applications and therefore often wanted on a private virtual web hosting server.
VPS with PHP - PHP is a scripting language utilized by web developers, so it is popular with different web hosting solutions, incl. virtual server web hosting ones.
