What are VPSs?

There is no surprise that so many persons have begun building their very own personal feature-rich sites resorting to cost-free web platforms that are simple enough to use even for inexperienced customers. And due to all the charge-free web skins that are available on the World Wide Web, quite a lot of websites come into existence, which need a website hosting service such as the VPS hosting one.

What is VPS Hosting?

Web hosting is a solution, which permits you to upload your website on a hosting server in order to take it online and a VPS is a Virtual Private Server - it performs like a dedicated server, granting root access to the customer, but it shares the resources of the physical machine with other VPS hosting accounts. In other words, VPS hosting is a web hosting service provided on a virtual server, which is growing more and more famous due to the flexibility you have in terms of server setup. VPS are often utilized by web site developers and programmers as a test platform where they can ascertain how their product would perform under diverse circumstances.

VPS Hosting Types

If we start to distinguish at the basic level, we have to start with the individual Operating Systems, the most important types being:

Linux VPS hosting - it is normally favored thanks to the more affordable setup and maintenance prices and the ability to modify the OS according to the needs of the customers on the basis of the skills of the admins, because Linux is open-source.

Windows VPS hosting - being more expensive renders Windows a last refuge when you desire to host software apps that cannot perform on another OS and there are quite a few of them, so the Windows virtual web server hosting platform is very widely used as well.

Perhaps the most widely used VPS platform is LAMP, which means Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, and it determines a few more virtual server hosting types aside from Linux virtual server web hosting:

VPS hosting with the Apache web server - every hosting service needs a web server that will serve the web pages to the web browsers and Apache is one of the most widely used web servers; actually, back in 2009, it was the first to cross the one hundred million website milestone.

VPS hosting with MySQL - there are different sorts of databases that can be used on a virtual private hosting server but MySQL is undoubtedly among the most widespread ones used in web applications. It is preferred because of its plain structure and quick speed.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a multiple-purpose programming language used in the development of different websites and web apps, so it is only logical that it is popular with most web hosting services, including virtual web hosting servers.

Other VPS hosting types that can be distinguished are: VPS hosting with PostgreSQL - a more elaborate and full-featured database type; VPS web server hosting with CGI and VPS server hosting with Perl - these two script languages are also frequently used for web applications and websites and typically they are used in combination with a Linux OS.
