VPS Web Hosting Explanation

To fulfill the demand for modestly priced, but reliable hosting solutions, companies launched a transitional web hosting platform - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a server that operates just like a : dedicated web server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting account. At the same time, as numerous accounts are created on the very same physical machine and each client pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting solution is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic VPS web hosting plan is a little more high-priced than the most advanced shared website hosting plan, but its system resources excel by far those of the shared plan.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is insulated from all other accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where customers can have a look at all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side software applications, keep an eye on the used up and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just several instances of software platforms utilized for setting up and handling virtual web server packages. They have various requirements about the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual virtual private web servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Services

The virtualization console offers the client the freedom to manage the VPS web hosting autonomously from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to restart a specific service or retrieve a backup. If the customer is not tech-savvy, though, we provide a voluntary upgrade that contains Operating System and software installation and update procedures, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a number of VPS server data center locations to choose from: the US, the UK and Australia.

Website Hosting CPs for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the virtual web hosting server are dealt with through a hosting Control Panel GUI, similar to a classic shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with web hosting accounts, users obtain one concrete web hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS web hosting package, providers normally give a number of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more advanced customers can install and avail of the web hosting Control Panel they wish. Some virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the customer. Sadly, most Control Panels are paid. Some of them demand a monthly fee (cPanel requires 13 USD/month, take a glance at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of website hosting CP-equipped VPS web hosting, it's worthwhile to point out that, by default, all VPS web hosting accounts offered by us are fitted out with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is offered at no additional licence cost, thus the monthly price of the virtual server package chosen by the user does not fluctuate. Furthermore, Hepsia perhaps has the best Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Web Hosting Plans

The hosting Control Panel tool enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and email box accounts, to observe bandwidth and load logs and to take a glimpse at thorough statistics concerning the consumed and the available resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are devised to operate under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most popular web hosting Control Panels, operates solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is manufactured by the very same firm, runs exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting CPs over others is that they involve several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of features governing the levels beneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting solutions to other persons. As clients will be informed about what amount of the resources is consumed, but will not observe the real figures, even a low-end private virtual server account will be enough to run a small-size shared web hosting web hosting enterprise and earn money.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Modestly Priced Solution

A VPS web hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a very famous online store or a huge corporate web page. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred choice of both inexperienced customers and trained users.
