VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated server as far as administration is concerned since you have full server root access with a possibility to reboot the virtual web server distantly. The VPS web hosting shares system resources with other virtual private hosting servers that are accommodated on the same physical server. This results in a very inexpensive price, which is much lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more comparable to shared website hosting plans in terms of prices.

Sorts of VPS Web Hosting

Just like any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ on the basis of different features, but the Operating System is maybe the most prominent difference. Here are the 2 most essential types:

Windows VPS web hosting - a private virtual server platform running Windows that will allow software applications which require Windows to operate properly to be activated on the private virtual web server.

Linux VPS web hosting - a private virtual web hosting server system running Linux is the more widespread type that you can come across on the Internet as it is more affordable to assemble and administer and so it is more wanted.

VPS servers are also quite popular with resellers and you can find 2 modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a virtual web server and begins selling shared website hosting plans that are hosted on the virtual private web hosting server. It is similar to the ordinary reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller is given full server root access and can alter the server's configuration.

VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller actually buys whole VPS web hosting plans to sell them to the customers instead of selling shared web hosting packages on one single virtual hosting server. It is considered more profitable but also needs more initial contributions to buy the private virtual web server.

Just as any other web hosting type, VPS web hosting packages regularly involve a LAMP software bundle. LAMP means Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces three more virtual hosting server varieties:

VPS web hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server is very famous and was the first to surpass the 100 million web site milestone back in 2009, so it is normally used with virtual web servers as well.

VPS web hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system used with a lot of web apps and therefore regularly requested on a private virtual hosting server.

VPS web hosting with PHP - PHP is a script language designed for web development, so it is popular with different web hosting solutions, incl. virtual private web server hosting ones.
