There is no wonder that so many people have started building their very own professional-looking online portals availing of cost-free web apps that are easy enough to use even for novices. And thanks to all the free web page skins that are obtainable on the World Wide Web, quite many web sites start to operate, which require a web hosting solution like the VPS hosting one.

What is VPS Web Hosting?

website hosting is a solution, which allows you to upload your web site on a web hosting server in order to get it online and a VPS is a virtual web server - it works like a dedicated server, supplying complete root access to the client, but it shares the system resources of the physical server with other VPS web hosting accounts. In other words, VPS hosting is a web hosting service offered on a private virtual web hosting server, which is getting more and more popular thanks to the independence you have in terms of server setup. VPS Web Hosting are often used by website developers and programmers as a test platform where they can check how their product would work under different conditions.

VPS Web Hosting Types

If we start to differentiate at the basic level, we must begin with the separate OSs, the most essential varieties being:

Linux VPS web hosting - it is typically favored because of the lower setup and maintenance rates and the ability to modify the Operating System as per the requirements of the customers based on the skills of the admins, because Linux is open-source.

Windows VPS web hosting - being more expensive renders Windows a last resort when you desire to host applications that cannot function on another OS and there are many of them, so the Windows Virtual Private Server web hosting platform is quite famous too.

Possibly the most widespread VPS platform is LAMP, which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, and it introduces a few more VPS server hosting varieties apart from Linux virtual server hosting:

VPS web hosting with the Apache web server software - every hosting service demands a server that will serve the webpages to the web browsers and Apache is one of the most extensively used web servers; as a matter of fact, back in 2009, it was the first to hit the 100 000 000 website milestone.

VPS web hosting with MySQL - there are many kinds of databases that can be used on a virtual private web server but MySQL is undoubtedly among the most widespread ones utilized in web apps. It is preferred owing to its plain structure and fast speed.

VPS web hosting with PHP - PHP is a multiple-purpose script language used in the development of many web sites and apps, so it is only natural that it is popular with most web hosting services, including virtual servers.

Other VPS web hosting types that can be differentiated are: VPS hosting with PostgreSQL - a more intricate and fully featured database management system variety; virtual private web server hosting with CGI and VPS web hosting with Perl - these two programming languages are also regularly used for web apps and sites and usually they go with a Linux OS.
