To satisfy the need for low cost, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors launched an intermediate web hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a hosting server that acts just like a : dedicated server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting account. On the other hand, as a number of accounts are created on the very same physical hosting server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting package is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting account is a bit more expensive than the most feature-rich shared website hosting account, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be rebooted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where customers can watch all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software applications, have a look at the consumed and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a few instances of virtualization platforms used for creating and managing private virtual web server hosting packages. They have diverse requirements about the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, etc. For instance, KVM can perform on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual private virtual hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization platform gives the user the freedom to administer the VPS hosting autonomously from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support team to reboot a service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not competent enough, though, we have an optional upgrade that comprises Operating System and software installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a number of virtual private web server datacenter facility locations to choose from: America, England and Australia.

Website hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the virtual private web server are tackled through a hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a normal shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with web hosting accounts, clients receive one concrete website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting package, web hosting providers traditionally offer a couple of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more proficient clients can install and make use of the website hosting CP they like. Certain virtualization panels support installing a hosting CP through them to make things easier for the customer. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting CPs are paid. Some require a monthly tax (cPanel demands $13/month, have a look at BuycPanel.com), while others request a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we talk about Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's worth stating that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts supplied by us ship with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no additional license charge, thus the monthly price of the virtual hosting server package picked by the customer does not alter. Last, but not least, Hepsia probably sports the best Domain Manager on the web hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Plans

The website hosting CP user interface allows users to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail address accounts, to monitor traffic and load logs and to observe comprehensive stats concerning the used up and the remaining resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are devised to function under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web hosting CPs, works only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is made by the same firm, operates exclusively under Windows. Other website hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some website hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of functionalities controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting services to other individuals. As clients will see what amount of the resources is used up, but will not be able to view the actual numbers, even a low-end virtual private web hosting server plan will suffice to establish a small-size shared web hosting web hosting firm and collect capital.

The VPS Hosting: an Independent, Cut-Rate Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web portals such as a highly visited online store or a large company portal. As its management is easy, it is the favored pick of both rookies and skillful clients.
