To meet the need for inexpensive, but reliable hosting services, suppliers presented an intermediate web hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that performs quite like a : dedicated web server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting plan. On the other hand, as plenty of accounts are created on the very same physical web hosting server and each client pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting account is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting plan is slightly more expensive than the most advanced shared web hosting plan, but its resources excel by far those of the shared account.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be rebooted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization panel where customers can monitor all running tasks and abort or reboot them, update server-side software applications, take a look at the consumed and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just several examples of software applications used for setting up and administering private virtual server hosting plans. They involve different requirements in regard to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual virtual web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization system gives the customer the power to administer the VPS hosting autonomously from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their support team to restart a particular service or retrieve a backup. If the user is not tech-savvy, however, we offer an optional upgrade that contains OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of virtual hosting server datacenter facility locations to choose from: the USA, the UK and Australia.

Website hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the virtual web server are dealt with through a website hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with web hosting packages, clients receive one specific CP, while with a VPS hosting account, web hosting providers normally present a number of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more advanced customers can install and utilize the Control Panel they desire. Some virtualization panels support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render it easier for the user. Unluckily, most website hosting Control Panels are not charge-free. Some of them ask for a monthly tax (cPanel asks for thirteen dollars/month, take a peek at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's useful to point out that, by default, all VPS hosting packages distributed by us offer the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is obtainable at no additional license charge, so the monthly price of the VPS server hosting account selected by the customer does not change. Moreover, Hepsia probably includes the greatest Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Accounts

The website hosting Control Panel interface enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail accounts, to view traffic and load logs and to keep track of detailed stats regarding the utilized and the free system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are created to run under a particular Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most well known web hosting CPs, operates solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is made by the very same firm, works solely under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some website hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of specs governing the levels below, so it is simple to establish a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting plans to other individuals. As customers will know what amount of the resources is used up, but will not see the real figures, even a small VPS web hosting server plan will suffice to set up a small shared web hosting web hosting firm and receive capital.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Inexpensive Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a very popular online store or a big corporate web page. As its management is simple, it is the favored selection of both novices and expert customers.
