VPS signifies Virtual Private Server and it behaves like a dedicated web server as far as management is concerned since you gain complete root-level access with a possibility to reboot the Virtual Private Server remotely. The VPS web hosting shares resources with other virtual private web hosting servers that are accommodated on the same physical server. This is reflected in the quite reasonable price, which is a lot lower than that of a dedicated server and is in fact closer to shared website hosting packages in terms of pricing.

Kinds of VPS Web Hosting

Just as any other hosting type, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of different features, but the OS is perhaps the most apparent difference. Here we have the two most essential varieties:

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

Linux VPS web hosting - a private virtual web hosting server system running Linux is the more famous type that you can chance on on the Internet since it is more affordable to construct and administer and thus it is more sought after.

VPS servers are also very popular with resellers and you can come across 2 modes of reselling a VPS:

VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller purchases a virtual server and starts selling shared packages that are hosted on the Virtual Private Server. It is akin to the traditional reseller hosting packages, but here the reseller has root-level access and can change the server's configuration.

VPS web hosting reseller - the reseller in fact purchases entire VPS web hosting plans to offer them to the customers rather than selling shared web hosting accounts on a single virtual private web hosting server. It is considered more remunerative but also needs more introductory deposits to buy the VPS hosting server.

Just like any other web hosting type, VPS web hosting plans frequently entail a LAMP software stack. LAMP denotes Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and determines three more virtual server hosting types:

VPS web hosting with the Apache web server software - the Apache web server software is quite popular and was the first to pass the one hundred million web site mark back in 2009, so it is normally popular with virtual web hosting servers as well.

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

VPS web hosting with PHP - PHP is a script language used by web developers, so it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, incl. virtual private web server hosting ones.
