To satisfy the demand for low-priced, but reliable hosting services, companies commenced a midway web hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that behaves just like a : dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared hosting package. On the other hand, as plenty of accounts are hosted on the same physical hosting server and each person pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting account is markedly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting package is slightly more expensive than the most powerful shared hosting plan, but its system resources exceed by far those of the shared web hosting account.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and KVM

Each particular account is insulated from all other accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where clients can view all running tasks and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software applications, keep an eye on the utilized and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a few instances of virtualization systems utilized for creating and managing virtual server web hosting packages. They involve various requirements in relation to the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, etc. For instance, KVM can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual VPS servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization system offers the client the power to administer the VPS hosting autonomously from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support staff to reboot a service or restore a backup. If the user is not proficient, however, we provide an optional upgrade that comprises OS and software installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a bunch of VPS hosting server datacenter facility locations to choose from: the US, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the private virtual server are dealt with through a CP GUI, similar to a normal shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with web hosting plans, customers get one specific website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting plan, hosting providers normally offer a bunch of web hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more proficient clients can install and avail of the web hosting CP they like. Some virtualization systems support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to make it easier for the user. Sadly, the majority of the website hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some demand a monthly fee (cPanel wants $13/month, check out BuycPanel.com), while others demand a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting packages offered by us are furnished with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is obtainable at no additional licence cost, thus the monthly price of the Virtual Private Server hosting package selected by the customer does not change. In addition, Hepsia probably has the best Domain Manager on the web hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Packages

The web hosting CP tool enables customers to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email address accounts, to keep track of web traffic and load logs and to watch detailed stats regarding the consumed and the remaining system resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the CPs are conceived to perform under a certain OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used hosting CPs, performs only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is created by the very same corporation, functions exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given website hosting CPs over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of functions controlling the levels underneath, so it is simple to build a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by offering web hosting plans to other people. As customers will keep track of what percentage of the system resources is consumed, but will not observe the real figures, even a low-end virtual server web hosting account will be enough to open a small-sized shared website hosting web hosting corporation and collect money.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Inexpensive Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web sites such as a very popular online store or a big company web site. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred pick of both inexperienced customers and experienced clients.
