Windows VPS web hosting - being more costly renders Windows a final resort when you want to host applications that cannot run on a different platform and there are quite a few of them, so the Windows virtual server web hosting solution is very common as well.

Perhaps the most popular VPS configuration is LAMP, which is an acronym for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP, and it introduces several more virtual private web server hosting types aside from Linux private virtual server hosting:
