Website hosting is a solution, which enables you to upload your website on a web server so as to bring it online and a VPS is a virtual server - it behaves like a dedicated server, delivering complete server root access to the customer, but it shares the resources of the physical server with other VPS hosting accounts. So, VPS hosting is a web hosting service provided on a private virtual web server, which is becoming more and more widely used owing to the freedom you have in terms of server setup.

VPS Hosting Varieties

If we begin to differentiate at the core level, we have to begin with the individual Operating Systems, the most essential types being:

Linux VPS hosting - it is normally preferred thanks to the smaller setup and maintenance fees and the ability to configure the OS in accordance with the requirements of the customers on the basis of the skills of the administrators, since Linux is open-source.

Windows VPS hosting - being more costly renders Windows a last resort when you want to host apps that cannot perform on another system and there are quite a few of them, so the Windows VPS server web hosting platform is quite famous as well.

Perchance the most widely used VPS configuration is LAMP, which denotes Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, and it determines several more virtual server web hosting varieties aside from Linux VPS server hosting:

VPS hosting with Apache - each hosting service demands a server that will deliver the web pages to the browsers and Apache is one of the most commonly used servers; as it is, back in 2009, it was the first to pass the 100 million web site benchmark.

VPS hosting with MySQL - there are various kinds of databases that can be used on a VPS but MySQL is definitely among the most famous ones used in web applications. It is favored thanks to its simple configuration and swift speed.

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

Other VPS hosting varieties that can be distinguished are: VPS hosting with PostgreSQL - a more intricate and full-featured database variety; virtual server hosting with CGI and virtual private web server hosting with Perl - these two programming languages are also often used for web applications and web sites and typically they go with a Linux OS.
