What Actually is VPS web hosting?

To answer the need for affordable, but reliable hosting solutions, companies initiated an intermediate web hosting platform - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a server that works exactly like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting account. At the same time, as a number of accounts are set up on the same physical web server and each customer pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting solution is markedly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS web hosting account is a bit more expensive than the most powerful shared website hosting account, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared web hosting plan.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where clients can observe all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, observe the consumed and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several instances of virtualization platforms used for creating and administering private virtual server hosting packages. They involve different requirements in regard to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can perform on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be activated on the actual virtual private web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Services

The virtualization console gives the customer the power to administer the VPS web hosting autonomously from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their support staff to reboot a service or restore a backup. If the user is not an expert, though, we have a voluntary upgrade that encompasses OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several VPS hosting server datacenter locations to pick from: America, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Control Panels for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the content on the virtual web server are administered through a CP interface, similar to a normal shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with website hosting accounts, clients get one specific web hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS web hosting plan, web hosting providers traditionally give a handful of hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more expert users can install and make use of the website hosting Control Panel they like. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the user. Unfortunately, most web hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some demand a monthly fee (cPanel requires $13 USD/month, check, while others demand a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting CP-equipped VPS web hosting, it's good to point out that, by default, all VPS web hosting plans delivered by us are furnished with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is available at no further license cost, thus the monthly price of the virtual private web server hosting plan chosen by the user does not change. Last, but not least, Hepsia perhaps includes the finest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Web Hosting Plans

The hosting Control Panel tool enables users to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail accounts, to keep track of traffic and load logs and to keep track of comprehensive statistics concerning the used up and the free resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the website hosting CPs are intended to function under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known CPs, performs solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is devised by the same designer, functions solely under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of specs governing the levels below, so it is easy to establish a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting accounts to other people. As customers will monitor what percentage of the resources is utilized, but will not be aware of the real numbers, even a small-size VPS web hosting plan will suffice to launch a small-sized shared hosting website hosting company and receive capital.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Inexpensively Priced Solution

A VPS web hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web sites such as a highly visited online store or a huge company web page. As its management is easy, it is the favored pick of both rookies and advanced clients.
