To answer the demand for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting solutions, companies introduced a transitional website hosting environment - the VPS. This is a virtual emulation of a web server that acts exactly like a : dedicated web server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting plan. On the other hand, as lots of accounts are set up on the very same physical machine and each person pays for their account, the price for a VPS solution is much lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS account is a little more high-priced than the most advanced shared web hosting account, but its system resources surpass by far those of the shared website hosting plan.

VPS Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be rebooted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where customers can have a glimpse at all running tasks and stop or restart them, update server-side software, have a glimpse at the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of examples of virtualization panels used for setting up and handling VPS web hosting accounts. They involve different requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, etc. For instance, KVM can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual private web servers.

Managed VPS Services

The virtualization platform offers the customer the freedom to administer the VPS autonomously from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their support staff to reboot a specific service or recover a backup. If the customer is not an expert, however, we include an optional upgrade that includes OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several virtual private web server datacenter facility locations to select from: the US, Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS

The domains and the content on the private virtual server are tackled through a web hosting CP GUI, similar to a classic shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with hosting plans, clients obtain one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS account, web hosting providers typically present several website hosting Control Panels to pick from, and the more expert customers can install and use the website hosting Control Panel they desire. Some virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to make it simpler for the user. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some demand a monthly fee (cPanel requests thirteen dollars/month, have a look at BuycPanel.com), while others request a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we address hosting CP-supplied VPS, it's good to state that, by default, all VPS plans delivered by us comprise the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no additional license cost, hence the monthly cost of the virtual private hosting server package selected by the customer does not alter. Besides, Hepsia probably sports the best Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Accounts

The website hosting CP user interface permits clients to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and email box accounts, to keep track of web traffic and load logs and to observe exhaustive statistics concerning the utilized and the left system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the website hosting Control Panels are built to perform under a certain OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the best known website hosting Control Panels, operates only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is built by the same firm, performs only under Windows. Other website 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 superiority of some website hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of functions governing the levels underneath, so it is simple to establish a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by offering web hosting services to other people. As customers will view what amount of the resources is consumed, but will not be able to view the actual numbers, even a small VPS package will suffice to establish a small-size shared website hosting hosting company and earn cash.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Affordable Solution

A VPS is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a very famous web store or a huge corporate website. As its management is easy, it is the preferred choice of both inexperienced customers and competent customers.
