How Virtual Private Servers Work

These days it has become very easy to design a website by yourself with all the cost-free site skins that are available on the web together with free software apps that are appropriate even for beginners. Thus, multiple new web sites are born each day, among them weblogs - where the moderator can touch upon different issues that suggest themselves, and picture galleries - where individuals can share photos and the stories behind them on the Internet. These web sites must be hosted somewhere and one wise web hosting choice is a VPS hosting.

What is a VPS hosting?

VPS denotes Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated web server as far as management is concerned as you are given complete root access with a possibility to restart the VPS web hosting server remotely. The VPS hosting shares system resources with other virtual hosting servers that are accommodated on the same physical server. This is reflected in the very affordable price, which is several times lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually more similar to shared web hosting packages in terms of prices.

Sorts of VPS Hosting

Just like any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may differ depending on various features, but the OS is possibly the most obvious difference. Here are the 2 most essential types:

Windows VPS hosting - a private virtual server hosting system running Windows that will allow apps which need Windows to function properly to be activated on the VPS web server.

Linux VPS hosting - a VPS system running Linux is the more widely used type that you can encounter on the World Wide Web because it is cheaper to erect and handle and thus it is more wanted.

VPS servers are also quite sought after by resellers and you can discover 2 modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller buys a VPS web server and starts selling shared hosting plans that are hosted on the virtual web server. It is comparable to the conventional reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller has full root-level access and can update the web server's configuration.

VPS hosting reseller - the reseller actually purchases whole VPS hosting packages to sell them to the customers instead of selling shared web hosting accounts on a single private virtual server. It is deemed more cost-effective but also needs more initial deposits to purchase the virtual web hosting server.

Just as any other web hosting variety, VPS hosting packages frequently involve a LAMP solution stack. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines 3 more private virtual server varieties:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server - the Apache web server software is quite popular and was the first to exceed the 100 000 000 web site milestone back in 2009, so it is normally utilized with Virtual Private Servers as well.

VPS hosting with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous relational database management system utilized with numerous web apps and therefore frequently wanted on a private virtual server.

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