There is no wonder that so many users have started designing their very own feature-rich online portals making use of charge-free web applications that are simple enough to use even for inexperienced customers. And owing to all the cost-free layouts that are available on the World Wide Web, quite a lot of web sites are being created, which demand a website hosting solution such as the VPS hosting one.

What is VPS Hosting?

Web hosting is a solution, which permits you to upload your web site on a hosting server in order to take it online and a VPS is a virtual web server - it performs like a dedicated server, offering complete root access to the user, but it shares the system resources of the physical machine with other VPS hosting accounts. In other words, VPS hosting is a web hosting service offered on a VPS web hosting server, which is growing more and more widely used because of the independence you have in terms of server setup. VPS Hosting are regularly used by website developers and programmers as a testing platform where they can verify how their product would work under diverse circumstances.

VPS Hosting Varieties

If we start to distinguish at the core level, we have to begin with the different Operating Systems, the most essential varieties being:

Linux VPS hosting - it is typically preferred thanks to the lower setup and maintenance taxes and the ability to configure the OS in accordance with the requirements of the clients on the basis of the capabilities of the administrators, as Linux is open-source.

Windows VPS hosting - being more costly makes Windows a final resort when you desire to host applications that cannot operate on another platform and there are many of them, so the Windows Virtual Private Server web hosting solution is very widely used as well.

Perhaps the most widespread VPS software platform is LAMP, which signifies Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, and it introduces several more VPS web server hosting varieties aside from Linux VPS hosting:

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

VPS hosting with MySQL - there are various types of database management software systems that can be utilized on a virtual server but MySQL is by all means among the most widespread ones used in web applications. It is favored thanks to its plain structure and fast speed.

VPS hosting with PHP - PHP is a multiple-purpose programming language used in the development of numerous sites and web apps, so it is only logical that it is popular with the majority of web hosting solutions, including virtual web hosting servers.

Other VPS hosting varieties that can be differentiated are: VPS hosting with PostgreSQL - a more complex and fully featured database management software system type; private virtual web server hosting with CGI and VPS web server hosting with Perl - these 2 script languages are also frequently used for web applications and sites and ordinarily they are used in combination with a Linux OS.
