To satisfy the demand for economical, but reliable hosting services, vendors presented an intermediate web hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that functions precisely like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting solution. On the other hand, as a number of accounts are hosted on the same physical server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting solution is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting account is a little more expensive than the most feature-rich shared website hosting package, but its resources excel decidedly those of the shared website hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is isolated from all other accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be restarted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization panel where users can watch all running tasks and abort or restart them, update server-side software, take a glimpse at the utilized and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several examples of virtualization systems used for setting up and handling VPS server web hosting packages. They involve various requirements concerning the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For example, KVM can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual private virtual web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization panel offers the customer the power 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 reboot a particular service or restore a backup. If the client is not an expert, however, we have a voluntary upgrade that incorporates OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a bunch of virtual web server data center locations to select from: North America, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the content on the private virtual server are administered via a web hosting Control Panel tool, similar to a normal shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with website hosting accounts, customers get one specific web hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting plan, hosting providers traditionally offer a handful of web hosting CPs to pick from, and the more practiced customers can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they want. Some virtualization consoles support installing a Control Panel through them to make things simpler for the user. Unfortunately, most web hosting CPs are not free. Some of those demand a monthly tax (cPanel asks for thirteen dollars/month, go to, while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of CP-equipped VPS hosting, it's good to state that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts offered by us arrive with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is offered at no further licence cost, so the monthly cost of the Virtual Private Server hosting account picked by the client does not alter. Furthermore, Hepsia perhaps offers the finest Domain Manager on the web hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Hosting Plans

The website hosting Control Panel user interface permits customers to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mail accounts, to keep track of bandwidth and load logs and to monitor thorough statistics about the utilized and the free resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the web hosting Control Panels are conceived to operate under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web hosting CPs, runs solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is conceived by the very same firm, operates solely under Windows. Other hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given website hosting CPs over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of specifications controlling the levels beneath, so it is simple to set up a reseller web hosting website and start making money by offering web hosting accounts to other individuals. As clients will know what percentage of the resources is consumed, but will not be able to view the real numbers, even a small Virtual Private Server web hosting account will suffice to start a small-sized shared website hosting website hosting enterprise and gain cash.

The VPS Hosting: an Independent, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web sites such as a very famous web store or a large company website. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred selection of both novices and skillful customers.
