To answer the need for budget, but reliable hosting services, distributors commenced a midway website hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a hosting server that works exactly like a : dedicated web server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting plan. At the same time, as a number of accounts are set up on the same physical server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting solution is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting account is a bit more expensive than the most advanced shared website hosting package, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared web hosting plan.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is isolated from all other accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where users can observe all running tasks and abort or reboot them, update server-side software applications, see the utilized and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of examples of software programs utilized for setting up and managing virtual private web server accounts. They have diverse requirements with respect to the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual virtual web servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization platform gives the user the power to manage the VPS hosting autonomously from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support staff to reboot a specific service or restore a backup. If the user is not proficient, though, we provide an optional upgrade that incorporates OS and software installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a number of Virtual Private Server server farm facility locations to choose from: North America, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the Virtual Private Server are handled through a web hosting CP tool, similar to a conventional shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with website hosting plans, users obtain one concrete web hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting plan, web hosting providers traditionally provide a bunch of website hosting CPs to pick from, and the more knowledgeable users can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they want. Certain virtualization systems support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render things simpler for the user. Unfortunately, most website hosting CPs are paid. Some ask for a monthly fee (cPanel charges $13/month, take a peek at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we address web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting packages supplied by us comprise the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is offered at no extra licence charge, thus the monthly price of the Virtual Private Server web hosting plan picked by the user does not fluctuate. Moreover, Hepsia perhaps has the best Domain Manager on the web hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel interface enables customers to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and email box accounts, to monitor traffic and load logs and to have a glimpse at thorough statistics about the used up and the remaining resources. Like the virtualization panels, the web hosting Control Panels are developed to work under a specific Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most popular hosting CPs, functions solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is fabricated by the same corporation, functions exclusively under Windows. Other CPs like Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some web hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of functionalities controlling the levels beneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by offering web hosting plans to other individuals. As customers will know what percentage of the system resources is utilized, but will not be able to see the real numbers, even a low-end VPS web server hosting plan will suffice to open a small-size shared website hosting website hosting firm and collect cash.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Low-Cost Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web pages such as a very famous online store or a huge corporate portal. As its management is easy, it is the preferred selection of both newcomers and expert clients.
