Virtual servers are widely used to host websites due to the great features they provide and the cheap costs.



It is such a nice thing to have your own website that contains the content you want to show world wide. Also, it is nice to host yourself your website on your own private hosting server that is controlled completely by you from A to Z.


In this article, we will explain to you how to buy your own server online and later on we will explain how to configure it to serve your webhosting needs where you can host more than website and more than one service.


It is very important to have a reliable hosting service that keeps your website up 24/7 with a constant performance and speed that don't change over time. Virtual server hosting is very common due to the great features and the low cost, it can be the best choice for beginners and intermediate people. Virtual servers are known as VPS which is explained below.


What Is The VPS?

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server that you can access online via a control panel the hosting company provides.


Why Shall We Go For The VPS?

Many reasons can make the virtual server hosting a great webhosting choice as follows:

2.   Easy setup and configuration

When it comes to billing, you don't need to enter your credit/debit card information to get their service, you can use the Paypal and they don't deduct money without your permission.

In Simple Words

Having a virtual server hosting is like having your own apartment within a building, you have full control over the resources like the kitchen, bathrooms, etc. but you are sharing the building (server) with others.

The Shared Hosting is like having a room within an apartment, you share the resources (kitchen, bathrooms, store rooms, etc.).

The Dedicated Hosting is like being in your independent villa, nobody shares anything with you.
