VPS Web Hosting Explanation

To meet the demand for inexpensive, but reliable hosting services, distributors presented a transitional web hosting environment - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a hosting server that performs precisely like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting package. At the same time, as numerous accounts are created on the very same physical web server and each customer pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting package is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS web hosting plan is a bit more high-priced than the most advanced shared web hosting plan, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared web hosting plan.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each particular account is insulated from all other accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be restarted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where clients can view all running processes and terminate or restart them, update server-side applications, have a look at the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a couple of instances of virtualization panels utilized for creating and administering private virtual hosting server plans. They involve diverse requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a web server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual hosting servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization console offers the user the power to administer the VPS web hosting independently from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support team to reboot a particular service or retrieve a backup. If the user is not tech-savvy, though, we offer a voluntary upgrade that includes 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 server data center locations to choose from: the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the Virtual Private Server are managed through a web hosting CP interface, similar to a classic shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with hosting packages, users receive one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS web hosting account, web hosting providers commonly provide a couple of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more expert clients can install and use the hosting Control Panel they wish. Certain virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting CP through them to render it easier for the user. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not free. Some of these require a monthly tax (cPanel charges $13 USD/month, go to BuycPanel.com), while others demand a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we talk about website hosting CP-supplied VPS web hosting, it's useful to state that, by default, all VPS web hosting plans offered by us comprise the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is obtainable at no extra license cost, thus the monthly cost of the VPS server web hosting plan selected by the customer does not change. What's more, Hepsia probably sports the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Web Hosting Accounts

The website hosting Control Panel GUI allows customers to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and mailbox accounts, to see bandwidth and load logs and to monitor exhaustive statistics about the used up and the available system resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are built to operate under a given OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known Control Panels, works only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is conceived by the very same corporation, operates only under Windows. Other website hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain hosting CPs over others is that they involve several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of functions governing the levels beneath, so it is easy to establish a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting accounts to other persons. As customers will observe what percentage of the resources is utilized, but will not know the real numbers, even a low-end private virtual server hosting account will suffice to run a small-sized shared website hosting hosting enterprise and gain cash.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS web hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web sites such as a very famous web store or a huge corporate web page. As its management is simple, it is the preferred selection of both inexperienced clients and qualified customers.
