To meet the need for economical, but reliable hosting services, suppliers introduced a midway web hosting platform - the VPS. This is a virtual simulation of a server that acts precisely like a : dedicated web server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting account. On the other hand, as lots of accounts are hosted on the same physical web hosting server and each client pays for their account, the price for a VPS package is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS account is slightly more high-priced than a hi-end shared web hosting package, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared web hosting package.

VPS Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be restarted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where users can have a look at all running processes and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software applications, keep track of the utilized and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of instances of software programs used for creating and managing private virtual web server accounts. They have diverse requirements in relation to the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete VPSs.

Managed VPS Services

The virtualization panel offers the client the power to manage the VPS independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their support staff to reboot a service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not experienced, however, we provide a voluntary upgrade that comprises OS and software installation and update procedures, VPS backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a number of virtual hosting server data center facility locations to select from: the USA, England and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS

The domains and the content on the virtual web server are handled through a web hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a conventional shared web hosting plan's. The contrast is that with web hosting accounts, customers obtain one particular web hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS plan, hosting providers usually offer a bunch of website hosting Control Panels to pick from, and the more experienced users can install and avail of the hosting Control Panel they desire. Some virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to make things easier for the customer. Unfortunately, most web hosting Control Panels are not free of cost. Some of those ask for a monthly tax (cPanel asks for $13/month, check out BuycPanel.com), while others demand a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other CPs that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss website hosting CP-equipped VPS, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all VPS accounts distributed by us incorporate the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia comes at no further license charge, thus the monthly cost of the VPS server account selected by the user does not fluctuate. Furthermore, Hepsia probably includes the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Accounts

The web hosting CP GUI enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mailbox accounts, to observe bandwidth and load logs and to have a glimpse at detailed statistics regarding the utilized and the remaining system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the Control Panels are built to run under a particular Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the best known web hosting CPs, functions exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is constructed by the same corporation, operates exclusively under Windows. Other hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given website hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a separate set of specs governing the levels beneath, so it is easy to establish a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting solutions to other people. As customers will be informed about what percentage of the resources is consumed, but will not be able to see the real numbers, even a small-size VPS hosting server package will suffice to establish a small-size shared web hosting web hosting firm and earn capital.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Economical Solution

A VPS is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web portals such as a busy web store or a huge corporate web page. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred selection of both newcomers and qualified customers.
