There is no wonder that so many individuals have started designing their own functionality-rich websites resorting to cost-free web apps that are easy enough to use even for novices. And due to all the free-of-cost web design themes that are available on the Internet, quite many web sites start to operate, which demand a website hosting service such as the VPS hosting one.

What is Virtual Private Servers Hosting?

Hosting is a service, which permits you to upload your web site on a web hosting server in order to bring it online and a VPS is a private virtual hosting server - it functions like a dedicated server, lending complete server root access to the user, but it shares the system resources of the physical machine with other virtual private servers hosting accounts. So, VPS hosting is a web hosting service offered on a virtual private hosting server, which is growing more and more popular due to the autonomy you have as far as server setup is concerned. Virtual Private Servers are often used by software developers and programmers as a testing platform where they can compare how their product would perform under different circumstances.

Virtual Private Servers Hosting Types

If we start to distinguish at the basic level, we must start with the different OSs, the most important varieties being:

Linux virtual private servers hosting - it is typically favored because of the lower setup and maintenance taxes and the ability to configure the OS according to the needs of the customers based on the capabilities of the admins, since Linux is open-source.

Windows virtual private servers hosting - being more expensive makes Windows a final refuge when you would like to host software applications that cannot run on another system and there are quite a few of them, so the Windows VPS server web hosting platform is very widespread too.

Possibly the most extensively used VPS software platform is LAMP, which means Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, and it introduces several more private virtual server hosting types aside from Linux VPS server web hosting:

Virtual private servers hosting with the Apache web server software - every hosting service requires a server that will serve the web pages to the web browsers and Apache is among the most widely used web servers; as a matter of fact, back in 2009, it was the first to break the 100 000 000 web site benchmark.

Virtual private servers hosting with MySQL - there are different kinds of database management systems that can be utilized on a virtual private web server but MySQL is definitely among the most widespread ones used in web applications. It is favored because of its plain configuration and swift speed.

Virtual private servers hosting with PHP - PHP is a multi-function script language utilized in the development of many sites and apps, so it is only normal that it is popular with the majority of web hosting solutions, including Virtual Private Servers.

Other Virtual private servers hosting types that can be differentiated are: VPS hosting with PostgreSQL - a more intricate and full-featured database management software system type; private virtual server hosting with CGI and private virtual server web hosting with Perl - these two programming languages are also regularly used for web apps and sites and typically they are used in combination with a Linux OS.
