What Indeed is VPS web hosting?

To fulfill the need for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting services, companies introduced a transitional hosting platform - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a server that works exactly like a : dedicated server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting account. At the same time, as multiple accounts are hosted on the very same physical web server and each client pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting solution is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS web hosting package is a little more expensive than the most feature-rich shared web hosting account, but its resources excel by far those of the shared web hosting plan.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is isolated from all other accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization panel where users can view all running tasks and abort or restart them, update server-side software, have a glimpse at the consumed and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few examples of virtualization systems utilized for setting up and administering VPS hosting server accounts. They have various requirements regarding the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For example, KVM can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete Virtual Private Servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Services

The virtualization system lends the customer the power to manage the VPS web hosting independently from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to reboot a specific service or restore a backup. If the client is not skilled enough, however, we offer a voluntary upgrade that involves OS and software installation and update procedures, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have several private virtual hosting server server farm facility locations to select from: the United States, England and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for VPS Web Hosting

The domains and the web content on the virtual hosting server are administered via a website hosting CP tool, similar to a common shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with web hosting packages, customers obtain one particular CP, while with a VPS web hosting account, providers usually offer a couple of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more competent customers can install and make use of the CP they desire. Certain virtualization platforms support installing a website hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the client. Unluckily, most website hosting Control Panels are not free of cost. Some ask for a monthly tax (cPanel requests $13/month, take a peek at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about hosting CP-supplied VPS web hosting, it's good to point out that, by default, all VPS web hosting plans provided by us contain the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no further license cost, so the monthly cost of the private virtual web server package picked by the client does not change. Last, but not least, Hepsia perhaps has the greatest Domain Manager on the hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Web Hosting Plans

The website hosting Control Panel interface enables customers to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail address accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to have a look at detailed stats about the consumed and the free system resources. Similar to the virtualization panels, the web hosting CPs are developed to work under a specific OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widespread web hosting Control Panels, works solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is conceived by the same firm, operates only under Windows. Other web hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain web hosting Control Panels over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a separate set of specifications controlling the levels underneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by selling web hosting solutions to other people. As customers will view what amount of the system resources is consumed, but will not see the actual figures, even a small virtual private hosting server account will be enough to establish a small-size shared hosting web hosting firm and gain capital.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Reasonably Priced Solution

A VPS web hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support sites such as a very famous online store or a big company website. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred selection of both inexperienced users and practiced clients.
