To fulfill the demand for affordable, but reliable hosting services, distributors introduced a midway website hosting environment - the VPS. This is a virtual simulation of a server that acts just like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting solution. On the other hand, as a number of accounts are created on the same physical hosting server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS account is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS package is a bit more high-priced than the most advanced shared web hosting package, but its resources exceed decidedly those of the shared web hosting plan.

VPS Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be restarted autonomously 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 restart them, update server-side software applications, see the consumed and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few examples of virtualization platforms used for setting up and administering Virtual Private Server plans. They involve diverse requirements concerning the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, etc. For instance, KVM can operate on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual VPS hosting servers.

Managed VPS Solutions

The virtualization console gives the user the freedom to manage the VPS autonomously from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support team to restart a service or restore a backup. If the user is not proficient, though, we have an optional upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several VPS web server datacenter facility locations to choose from: the United States of America, England and Australia.

Website hosting CPs for VPS

The domains and the content on the private virtual server are manipulated through a web hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a classic shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with website hosting packages, customers get one concrete web hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS package, providers normally offer a number of web hosting CPs to select from, and the more advanced clients can install and avail of the website hosting Control Panel they wish. Certain virtualization panels support installing a web hosting CP through them to render it easier for the client. Sadly, most web hosting CPs are not free of charge. Some of those require a monthly tax (cPanel charges $13/month, visit BuycPanel.com), while others request a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS packages provided by us are equipped with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is available at no extra license charge, hence the monthly cost of the virtual private web server package chosen by the client does not alter. Furthermore, Hepsia probably includes the best Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Accounts

The web hosting Control Panel tool permits customers to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email mailbox accounts, to keep track of bandwidth and load logs and to have a glimpse at comprehensive stats concerning the used up and the left system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the CPs are devised to work under a given OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most famous web hosting Control Panels, runs solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is made by the very same designer, operates only under Windows. Other web hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given website hosting Control Panels over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of specs governing the levels beneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by selling web hosting services to other people. As customers will observe what percentage of the system resources is utilized, but will not observe the actual numbers, even a low-end private virtual server web hosting account will suffice to open a small shared web hosting website hosting corporation and receive capital.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Inexpensive Solution

A VPS is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support online portals such as a very famous online store or a big corporate site. As its management is simple, it is the preferred selection of both rookies and expert customers.
