VPS Hosting — 16 January 2012

VPS service’s popularity has been on the rise due to abilities that the server administration tools and the hypervisor group of tools have to let the server partition be configured in any manner as desired by the company. VPS server can boast of having the ability to run on multiple Operating systems. The various important class of families of operating systems are the Microsoft’s Windows family, the Linux family and the FreeBSD operating systems. The Linux and FreeBSD operating systems have the commonality of coming from a single parent.

Like Linux, FreeBSD is also an indirect descendant of the Unix kernel which was developed by the AT and T company along with the Bell corporation. The Unix kernel was then let out as free and open source software. Several programming enthusiasts and students including Linus Pauling took upon themselves to improve an add features to the basic kernel skeletons filled with attributes which they felt are necessary in an operating system. Hence there is a large number of operating systems on offer these days which are being offered free and are slightly distinct from each other. The FreeBSD software has a demon as its insignia and is a very stable OS.

The hosting of VPS using FreeBSD has been a very popular prospect since its very first days of inception. Then FreeBSD was looked upon as a contender to Linux (they still are seen as competitors) though on the outside their forums tend to present an united armada against the proprietary softwares. The latest versions of the Os and the kernel are updated periodically and hence are very much in demand. FreeBSD VPS is the most secure way of hosting as there are very little ways to hack into a sever (VPS) with a FreeBSD service.
