To fulfill the need for low cost, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors introduced a midway web hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a hosting server that functions exactly like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting plan. On the other hand, as plenty of accounts are created on the same physical web hosting server and each person pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting package is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS hosting package is a bit more expensive than the most powerful shared web hosting plan, but its system resources excel by far those of the shared web hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where clients can keep track of all running processes and terminate or restart them, update server-side applications, take a look at the consumed and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few instances of software applications used for setting up and administering virtual hosting server packages. They involve diverse requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual private web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization system offers the customer the freedom to manage the VPS hosting independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to restart a given service or restore a backup. If the customer is not tech-savvy, however, we offer a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a bunch of virtual web server datacenter facility locations to pick from: America, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the content on the virtual hosting server are administered via a CP interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with web hosting packages, users get one particular web hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting package, providers typically provide a number of CPs to pick from, and the more skillful users can install and make use of the website hosting Control Panel they wish. Some virtualization panels support installing a website hosting CP through them to render it easier for the customer. Unluckily, the majority of the website hosting Control Panels are not free of cost. Some of these ask for a monthly tax (cPanel wants $13/month, have a glance at, while others require a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting CP-supplied VPS hosting, it's worth mentioning that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts delivered by us incorporate the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is obtainable at no extra licence charge, hence the monthly cost of the private virtual server hosting package chosen by the customer does not change. Moreover, Hepsia perhaps includes the best Domain Manager on the web hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Hosting Accounts

The web hosting CP GUI allows customers to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mail accounts, to see bandwidth and load logs and to have a look at detailed stats about the consumed and the left system resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the CPs are built to function under a given OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the best known website hosting Control Panels, performs only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is invented by the same firm, performs exclusively under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given web hosting CPs over others is that they involve several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of functions controlling the levels below, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and start making money by offering web hosting services to other persons. As clients will view what amount of the resources is consumed, but will not be aware of the actual figures, even a low-end private virtual hosting server account will be enough to establish a small-size shared website hosting web hosting firm and receive money.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support sites such as a busy web store or a big corporate website. As its management is easy, it is the favored selection of both beginners and advanced clients.
