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

VPS servers are so easy to manage! You can access your server online and configure it within just few seconds!
You will get full control over your server! You are not sharing resources or data with anyone.

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.
It is simple to create an account, just click on "Sing Up" and then follow the instructions on the website.

There are more than one distribution to choose, we are recommending Ubuntu because it is very easy. Also, in future articles, we will use Ubuntu operating system in our further topics related to Linux.
There are more than one size for your VPS, you can choose the one which suits your needs. We would recommend the 10 USD/month plan as it is cheap and suitable for beginner and intermediate webmasters.
You can get your server installed in more than one datacenter world wide. You don't need to worry about their performance as the servers run very well in all locations.
You can get extra options for your VPS server, like private networking, the backups, IPv6, user data & SSH keys in case you don't want to receive your login password (root password) by email.
At the end, you need to indicate the number of servers that will have the same configuration and also the server hostname and then click on "Create" button.
You will need to wait for few seconds until your server gets deployed. You will receive the IP address of your server and the root password via the email if you didn't add the SSH keys from the additional options above. Once you receive the root password, you can login to your server via SSH protocol by using the terminal if you are using Linux or Mac machines, if you are using Windows machine, you have to install Putty.
Congratulations! Deployment has completed :)
