To satisfy the demand for cut-price, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors started a transitional hosting platform - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web server that operates exactly like a : dedicated web server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting plan. On the other hand, as plenty of accounts are created on the same physical web server and each user pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting package is markedly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting account is a little more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared web hosting package, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual 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 independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where users can observe all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software applications, have a look at the utilized and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several examples of software programs used for setting up and administering VPS server hosting packages. They involve different requirements with respect to the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can work on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual private virtual web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization panel gives the user the freedom to manage the VPS hosting independently from the 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 experienced, though, we include an optional upgrade that incorporates OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of virtual hosting server data center locations to select from: the USA, England and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the virtual private web hosting server are handled through a website hosting Control Panel GUI, similar to a typical shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with website hosting packages, clients receive one particular website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting package, web hosting providers typically present a bunch of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more proficient customers can install and avail of the web hosting CP they want. Some virtualization panels support installing a CP through them to render things simpler for the user. Unfortunately, the majority of the website hosting Control Panels are not charge-free. Some of them demand a monthly fee (cPanel asks for $13/month, have a glimpse at, while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of website hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS hosting, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting plans offered by us ship with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It includes unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is obtainable at no extra license charge, therefore the monthly cost of the VPS hosting account chosen by the customer does not change. Besides, Hepsia perhaps sports the best Domain Manager on the hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Hosting Accounts

The CP user interface allows clients to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and email address accounts, to see bandwidth and load logs and to take a glimpse at detailed stats concerning the consumed and the remaining resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the website hosting CPs are developed to function under a certain OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known web hosting CPs, functions only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is constructed by the very same corporation, performs only under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting CPs over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of specs governing the levels underneath, so it is simple to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting solutions to other persons. As customers will view what percentage of the system resources is used up, but will not be aware of the actual numbers, even a small virtual web server hosting plan will suffice to launch a small-sized shared website hosting website hosting enterprise and earn capital.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Low-Cost Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web sites such as a very popular online store or a large corporate site. As its management is simple, it is the preferred pick of both inexperienced customers and expert users.
