VPS stands for Virtual Private Server and it performs like a dedicated hosting server as far as management is concerned since you are given root-level access with a possibility to reboot the private virtual server from a distance. The VPS shares resources with other virtual private hosting servers that are hosted on the same physical server. This results in a remarkably affordable price, which is much cheaper than that of a dedicated server and is in fact more comparable to shared hosting plans as far as prices are concerned.
Types of VPS
Just like any other web hosting type, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of various features, but the OS is perhaps the most noticeable difference. Here are the 2 most important varieties:
Windows VPS - a private virtual web server hosting system running Windows that will allow software applications which require Windows to run unproblematically to be activated on the virtual server.
Linux VPS - a virtual private web server system running Linux is the more widespread variety that you can come across on the web because it is cheaper to erect and handle and thus it is more wanted.
VPS servers are also quite popular with resellers and you can find two modes of reselling a VPS:
VPS reseller - the reseller purchases a private virtual web hosting server and begins offering shared web hosting packages that are hosted on the VPS hosting server. It is comparable to the standard reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller is given full root-level access and can alter the web server's configuration.
VPS reseller - the reseller in fact buys entire VPS plans to offer them to the customers rather than selling shared web hosting plans on a single virtual private web hosting server. It is considered more profitable but also needs more introductory deposits to purchase the VPS web hosting server.
Just like any other web hosting variety, VPS packages frequently entail a LAMP platform. LAMP means Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces 3 more VPS hosting server types:
VPS with the Apache web server - the Apache web server is quite famous and was the first to surpass the 100 000 000 website benchmark back in 2009, so it is logically utilized with VPS web hosting servers as well.
VPS with MySQL - MySQL is also a famous database management system used with numerous web applications and thus regularly wanted on a Virtual Private Server.
VPS with PHP - PHP is a programming language preferred by web developers, thus it is popular with various web hosting solutions, incl. VPS server web hosting ones.
