To fulfill the demand for cut-price, but reliable hosting solutions, providers presented a transitional website hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web server that acts precisely like a : dedicated web server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting package. On the other hand, as multiple accounts are hosted on the very same physical machine and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting plan is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting plan is a little more high-priced than the most advanced shared website hosting plan, but its system resources exceed by far those of the shared hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each given account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where customers can observe all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side software applications, have a glimpse at the consumed and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just several instances of software programs utilized for setting up and managing VPS web server hosting accounts. They have various requirements in relation to the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, etc. For example, KVM can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be activated on the concrete virtual servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization system offers the client the freedom to manage the VPS hosting autonomously from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support staff to restart a particular service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not proficient, though, we provide an optional upgrade that incorporates OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a handful of VPS server server farm facility locations to pick from: America, Great Britain and Australia.

Website Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the Virtual Private Server are handled through a website hosting CP GUI, similar to a conventional shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with website hosting plans, customers get one concrete website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting account, web hosting providers normally present several web hosting CPs to pick from, and the more advanced users can install and use the website hosting CP they desire. Certain virtualization panels support installing a web hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the client. Sadly, most web hosting Control Panels are not free of charge. Some of those require a monthly fee (cPanel demands 13 dollars/month, check out, while others demand a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's useful to state that, by default, all VPS hosting packages provided by us ship with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is offered at no additional license cost, thus the monthly cost of the virtual hosting server package chosen by the user does not alter. Last, but not least, Hepsia perhaps includes the finest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Plans

The hosting CP GUI allows users to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and electronic mail accounts, to keep track of traffic and load logs and to monitor elaborate statistics about the consumed and the left system resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the website hosting Control Panels are developed to operate under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous website hosting CPs, functions solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is manufactured by the very same firm, works only under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage 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 separate set of functionalities controlling the levels below, so it is simple to establish a reseller web hosting website and start making money by selling web hosting services to other individuals. As clients will view what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not be able to see the actual figures, even a small VPS plan will be enough to start a small-size shared web hosting website hosting corporation and earn money.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Low-Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web pages such as a very famous online store or a huge corporate site. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred selection of both inexperienced users and practiced customers.
