These days it has become very simple to build an online portal on your own with all the free-of-cost site templates that are available on the Internet together with cost-free web platforms that are suitable even for inexperienced clients. Therefore, multiple new web sites are being launched each day, including blogs - where the moderator can comment on different issues that cross his minds, and web galleries - where people can share images and the stories behind them on the web. These websites must be hosted someplace and one smart web hosting alternative is a VPS.

What is a VPS?

VPS signifies Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated server as far as management is concerned because you are offered full root privileges with a possibility to reboot the virtual private hosting server remotely. The VPS shares system resources with other virtual private web hosting servers that are hosted on the very same physical machine. This results in a very reasonable price, which is much cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is actually more similar to shared web hosting plans as far as prices are concerned.

Kinds of VPS

Just like any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of various features, but the OS is perchance the most notable distinction. Here are the 2 most essential varieties:

Windows VPS - a virtual private web server hosting platform running Windows that will allow software apps which require Windows to operate unproblematically to be installed on the private virtual server.

Linux VPS - a Virtual Private Server hosting platform running Linux is the more widespread variety that you can find on the Internet since it is more affordable to set up and handle and hence it is more sought after.

VPS servers are also very sought after by resellers and you can come across two modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS reseller - the reseller buys a virtual web hosting server and starts offering shared web hosting plans that are hosted on the private virtual server. It is akin to the traditional reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller gains root access and can change the web server's configuration.

VPS reseller - the reseller in fact buys entire VPS plans to offer them to the clients instead of offering shared web hosting packages on one single virtual private web server. It is considered more profitable but also necessitates more initial investments to buy the private virtual server.

Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS plans regularly entail a LAMP software bundle. 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 is very famous and was the first to pass the 100 000 000 website milestone back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with Virtual Private Servers too.

VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system used with many apps and thus frequently wanted on a virtual hosting server.

VPS with PHP - PHP is a scripting language designed for web development, hence it is popular with various web hosting solutions, including VPS hosting ones.
