With the current advancements that are seen in the technological arena, what would be the best option for one looking to host a website or a network? Ideally, there are only two choices: Windows VPS hosting and Linux hosting VPS. Although Windows is the commonly used operating system on desktop computers, when it comes to hosting services Linux is seen to dominate. Before you ask why this is the case, you need to understand what Linux hosting VPS is, and why it is seen to be better than Windows VPS hosting. First, a VPS is a hosting system where one piece of physical server can have several virtual servers that can then be used to host individual websites. What this does is to ensure that the cost of running the server is low. This is because many websites will be hosted on the same server, yet it does not affect the running of the rest of the websites. Each of the virtual servers is allocated its own share of the total resources that the server has to offer. By extension, a Linux virtual private server is where the server runs on the Linux operating system, with the resources that the server can offer being shared, in order to form some smaller virtual servers.
The Linux operating system has another edge over the Windows operating system when it comes to VPS hosting. Linux is an open source application. Users who have the knowledge can customize the system to suit their needs. This gives them the power to work towards improving the security of their servers. They can also go on to install the applications, software and other items that they find necessary to the running of their server. By virtue of being open source, it means that the Linux operating system is also relatively cheap. Thus, hosting on VPS that runs on the Linux operating system becomes cheaper than one that runs on windows. Perhaps, the biggest advantage the Linux VPS has is that there are few security lapses. This is due to the fact that not many computers run on it. This means that there are few malicious software out there that can compromise the security and the running of any Linux hosting VPS. This, in essence, makes the servers that run on Linux to be a lot more stable than those that run on windows.
The best thing about the Linux hosting VPS is that each and every server is totally and wholly independent of the other. What this implies is that if you take means to protect yourself then there will be no threat that will come from the other servers, even if you are sharing the same physical hardware. This is a huge improvement from the past, where the sharing of the same server between different websites meant that if one became vulnerable, then, the rest of them were. A good example of something that is eliminated by the VPS is the chances of hacking that emanates from the security lag of a website with which you share the same server. In the past, a loophole in one website meant that all were vulnerable, but with the Linux Hosting VPS, it means that, since all servers are isolated, then the hack would affect the single website that is targeted.
