To answer the demand for low-priced, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors presented an intermediate web hosting environment - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web hosting server that operates quite like a : dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting solution. On the other hand, as multiple accounts are set up on the same physical hosting server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a VPS web hosting plan is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS web hosting account is a little more expensive than the most powerful shared website hosting account, but its resources surpass decidedly those of the shared web hosting package.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each particular account is isolated from all other accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization console where clients can observe all running processes and terminate or reboot them, update server-side applications, keep track of the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a few examples of software applications utilized for setting up and managing Virtual Private Server plans. They have various requirements concerning the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be activated on the actual private virtual servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization panel offers the customer the freedom to administer the VPS web hosting independently from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to restart a service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not skilled enough, though, we have an optional upgrade that encompasses OS and software installation and update procedures, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of private virtual hosting server server farm facility locations to choose from: America, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS Web Hosting

The domains and the content on the VPS hosting server are administered through a Control Panel user interface, similar to a conventional shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with website hosting packages, clients get one concrete CP, while with a VPS web hosting plan, providers typically provide a number of website hosting CPs to choose from, and the more tech-savvy customers can install and utilize the web hosting Control Panel they like. Certain virtualization systems support installing a web hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the customer. Sadly, the majority of the hosting CPs are not cost-free. Some of those demand a monthly tax (cPanel demands $13 USD/month, visit, while others demand a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting, it's good to mention that, by default, all VPS web hosting accounts furnished by us arrive with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is attainable at no further license charge, thus the monthly cost of the virtual web server hosting account selected by the customer does not change. What's more, Hepsia probably sports the greatest Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Web Hosting Plans

The website hosting Control Panel user interface enables customers to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and email address accounts, to see traffic and load logs and to take a look at thorough stats concerning the consumed and the available system resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the website hosting Control Panels are intended to operate under a certain OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widespread CPs, runs solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is conceived by the same designer, performs only under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting CPs over others is that they involve different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of functions controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting accounts to other persons. As clients will see what amount of the system resources is used up, but will not be aware of the actual numbers, even a small VPS web hosting server account will suffice to set up a small-size shared website hosting website hosting company and make cash.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Economical Solution

A VPS web hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support websites such as a busy web store or a big company website. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred selection of both inexperienced clients and skillful customers.
