How VPS Web Hosting Operates
These days it has become quite easy to develop a web portal on your own with all the free web templates that are available on the World Wide Web together with free software platforms that are applicable even for inexperienced users. Therefore, numerous brand new websites come into existence every day, including online blogs - where the moderator can focus on a variety of topics that spring to mind, and photo galleries - where people can publish pics and the history behind them on the web. These sites must be hosted someplace and one apt web hosting alternative is a VPS web hosting.
What is a VPS web hosting?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it works like a dedicated server as far as administration is concerned as you gain full server root access with a possibility to reboot the VPS web hosting server distantly. The VPS web hosting shares resources with other VPS web hosting servers that are accommodated on the same physical machine. This results in a very affordable price, which is a lot cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is in fact closer to shared web hosting plans as far as pricing is concerned.
Sorts of VPS Web Hosting
Just like any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of different features, but the OS is possibly the most essential difference. Here are the two most important varieties:
Windows VPS web hosting - a VPS web server platform running Windows that will allow apps which require Windows to operate smoothly to be installed on the VPS web server.
Linux VPS web hosting - a private virtual hosting server platform running Linux is the more commonly used variety that you can stumble upon on the Internet as it is cheaper to create and administer and therefore it is more wanted.
VPS servers are also very sought after by resellers and you can come across two modes of reselling a VPS:
VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a VPS server and starts offering shared website hosting plans that are hosted on the virtual private hosting server. It is comparable to the conventional reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller is granted root-level access and can update the web server's configuration.
VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller actually buys entire VPS web hosting packages to sell them to the customers rather than selling shared web hosting accounts on a single virtual private web hosting server. It is deemed more cost-effective but also calls for more initial payments to buy the VPS web server.
Just like any other web hosting type, VPS web hosting plans often entail a LAMP stack. LAMP means Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines three more virtual server 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 one hundred million web site milestone back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with private virtual web hosting servers as well.
VPS web hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system utilized with lots of web apps and therefore often requested on a VPS server.
VPS web hosting with PHP - PHP is a scripting language designed for web development, thus it is popular with different web hosting solutions, including private virtual web server hosting ones.
