To satisfy the need for affordable, but reliable hosting solutions, providers presented an intermediate website hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a server that functions quite like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting package. On the other hand, as many accounts are created on the very same physical machine and each person pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting package is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting account is a bit more high-priced than the most powerful shared hosting package, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared website hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization console where clients can have a look at all running tasks and terminate or restart them, update server-side applications, keep track of the used up and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several examples of virtualization panels used for creating and handling private virtual server plans. They involve diverse requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For example, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual virtual servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization platform lends the client the freedom 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 specific service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not tech-savvy, though, we offer a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of virtual hosting server datacenter locations to select from: North America, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domains and the content on the VPS web server are administered via a website hosting CP interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with hosting packages, clients receive one particular CP, while with a VPS hosting account, providers typically provide a number of website hosting Control Panels to pick from, and the more skilled users can install and make use of the website hosting Control Panel they like. Some virtualization systems support installing a web hosting CP through them to render it easier for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting CPs are not free of cost. Some of those require a monthly fee (cPanel requires 13 dollars/month, have a gaze at BuycPanel.com), while others demand a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's worth stating that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts provided by us are provided with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no extra licence cost, hence the monthly price of the VPS server web hosting account picked by the user does not fluctuate. In addition, Hepsia perhaps offers the best Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel user interface enables customers to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mail address accounts, to view bandwidth and load logs and to watch comprehensive stats concerning the used up and the available system resources. Comparable with the virtualization panels, the Control Panels are developed to operate under a specific OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most well known Control Panels, performs exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is tailored by the very same corporation, functions solely under Windows. Other 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 Control Panels over others is that they have several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of specs controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by offering web hosting packages to other persons. As clients will keep track of what percentage of the resources is utilized, but will not be aware of the real figures, even a small-size virtual web server hosting account will be enough to open a small-sized shared hosting hosting enterprise and receive cash.

The VPS Hosting: an Independent, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web sites such as a highly visited online store or a large company website. As its management is easy, it is the preferred pick of both rookies and expert users.
