What Indeed is VPS web hosting?

To meet the need for cheap, but reliable hosting solutions, providers presented a transitional website hosting environment - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a server that operates exactly like a : dedicated server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting account. On the other hand, as a number of accounts are created on the same physical machine and each user pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting account is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A low-end VPS web hosting account is slightly more expensive than a hi-end shared web hosting plan, but its resources surpass decidedly those of the shared website hosting account.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each particular account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be restarted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization panel where users can take a look at all running tasks and terminate or reboot them, update server-side applications, have a glimpse at the used up and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several examples of software systems utilized for setting up and administering private virtual server plans. They have diverse requirements regarding the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For example, KVM can work on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete Virtual Private Servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Services

The virtualization platform offers the customer the freedom to manage the VPS web hosting independently from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to restart a specific service or recover a backup. If the customer is not competent enough, though, we include an optional upgrade that comprises OS and software installation and update operations, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have several virtual private hosting server datacenter locations to pick from: the USA, Great Britain and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for VPS Web Hosting

The domains and the web content on the virtual server are tackled through a web hosting CP interface, similar to a common shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with hosting packages, clients receive one particular website hosting CP, while with a VPS web hosting package, web hosting providers typically give a handful of website hosting CPs to pick from, and the more knowledgeable clients can install and avail of the hosting CP they want. Some virtualization platforms support installing a Control Panel through them to make it simpler for the client. Unluckily, most web hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some of those ask for a monthly fee (cPanel asks for 13 USD/month, have a peek at, while others ask for a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting CP-supplied VPS web hosting, it's good to mention that, by default, all VPS web hosting accounts provided by us offer the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no extra license cost, therefore the monthly price of the private virtual server hosting account selected by the client does not fluctuate. In addition, Hepsia perhaps sports the greatest Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Web Hosting Packages

The web hosting Control Panel GUI permits clients to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and mail address accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to observe elaborate statistics concerning the consumed and the free system resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the hosting CPs are created to run under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widespread hosting CPs, functions only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is constructed by the very same firm, performs solely under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some web hosting CPs over others is that they involve different levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of specifications governing the levels below, so it is easy to set up a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting plans to other people. As customers will observe what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not know the actual figures, even a small-size Virtual Private Server web hosting account will be enough to launch a small shared web hosting hosting company and earn money.
