To meet the need for low-priced, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors started a midway website hosting platform - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a server that acts quite like a : dedicated server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting plan. At the same time, as multiple accounts are set up on the same physical web hosting server and each customer pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting plan is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting account is a little more high-priced than a hi-end shared hosting plan, but its system resources excel by far those of the shared website hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be rebooted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where clients can take a look at all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side software, watch the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of examples of virtualization panels used for creating and administering VPS server hosting plans. They have various requirements regarding the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual VPS web servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization platform gives the client the power to manage the VPS hosting independently from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support team to restart a particular service or restore a backup. If the customer is not an expert, though, we have an optional upgrade that contains OS and software application installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of Virtual Private Server data center locations to choose from: the USA, the UK and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the VPS hosting server are dealt with via a website hosting CP user interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with website hosting plans, clients receive one particular web hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting account, web hosting providers normally provide a couple of web hosting CPs to pick from, and the more competent customers can install and utilize the web hosting CP they wish. Certain virtualization panels support installing a hosting Control Panel through them to make things easier for the user. Unfortunately, most hosting Control Panels are not free. Some require a monthly fee (cPanel wants 13 USD/month, check, while others request a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's worth mentioning that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts distributed by us come with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia comes at no further license charge, so the monthly price of the virtual private web server account picked by the user does not fluctuate. In addition, Hepsia probably sports the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Hosting Packages

The web hosting Control Panel GUI permits users to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mailbox accounts, to observe traffic and load logs and to see exhaustive stats regarding the utilized and the left system resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are created to work under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most well known web hosting Control Panels, performs solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is developed by the same firm, works exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some web hosting CPs over others is that they involve several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of functionalities controlling the levels below, so it is simple to establish a reseller web hosting website and start making money by selling web hosting services to other people. As clients will know what amount of the resources is used up, but will not observe the real numbers, even a small-size VPS server hosting plan will suffice to start a small-size shared web hosting website hosting firm and earn cash.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Cut-Price Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web sites such as a highly visited online store or a big corporate portal. As its management is simple, it is the favored pick of both beginners and accomplished users.
