VPS is an acronym for Virtual Private Server and it functions like a dedicated web hosting server in terms of management as you get full server root access with a possibility to restart the virtual web server distantly. The virtual private servers shares resources with other virtual private hosting servers that are hosted on the same physical server. This results in a very inexpensive price, which is several times lower than that of a dedicated server and is actually closer to shared web hosting plans as far as prices are concerned.

Types of Virtual Private Servers

Just like any other hosting variety, Virtual Servers may vary on the basis of various features, but the Operating System is maybe the most visible difference. Here we have the two most essential types:

Windows virtual private servers - a virtual private web server hosting platform running Windows that will allow apps which require Windows to run properly to be installed on the virtual web server.

Linux virtual private servers - a virtual private web hosting server platform running Linux is the more widespread variety that you can find on the Internet since it is cheaper to assemble and administer and therefore it is more wanted.

VPS servers are also quite popular with resellers and you can find two modes of reselling a VPS:

virtual private servers reseller - the reseller buys a virtual hosting server and begins offering shared website hosting plans that are hosted on the private virtual web server. It is comparable to the regular reseller hosting plans, but here the reseller has full root access and can update the server's configuration.

virtual private servers reseller - the reseller actually purchases whole virtual private servers plans to sell them to the customers rather than offering shared web hosting accounts on a single virtual private web hosting server. It is considered more remunerative but also requests more introductory contributions to buy the private virtual server.

Just like any other web hosting type, virtual private servers packages regularly entail a LAMP stack. LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP and introduces three more VPS types:

virtual private servers with the Apache web server - the Apache web server is quite famous and was the first to surpass the 100 million website benchmark back in 2009, so it is naturally used with virtual hosting servers as well.

virtual private servers with MySQL - MySQL is also a popular database management system used with many web applications and hence regularly wanted on a VPS web hosting server.

virtual private servers with PHP - PHP is a programming language utilized by web developers, thus it is popular with a variety of web hosting solutions, incl. virtual server hosting ones.
