VPS Hosting Description

To fulfill the demand for affordable, but reliable hosting solutions, companies commenced a transitional website hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web hosting server that behaves quite like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting account. On the other hand, as lots of accounts are set up on the same physical machine and each person pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting account is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS hosting package is a little more expensive than the most advanced shared website hosting package, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared account.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each particular account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be rebooted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization console where users can see all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side software applications, observe the used up and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a few instances of software platforms utilized for creating and handling VPS web server hosting packages. They involve diverse requirements concerning the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For example, KVM can perform on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete virtual web servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization console offers the customer the freedom to manage the VPS hosting independently from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support team to reboot a given service or restore a backup. If the customer is not competent enough, though, we offer an optional upgrade that includes Operating System and software application installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several private virtual hosting server datacenter locations to choose from: the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the content on the VPS server are manipulated through a web hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a common shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with web hosting packages, clients receive one particular web hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting plan, hosting providers commonly offer several website hosting CPs to select from, and the more skillful customers can install and avail of the CP they desire. Certain virtualization systems support installing a web hosting CP through them to render things simpler for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the website hosting CPs are not charge-free. Some require a monthly tax (cPanel demands $13 USD/month, check out BuycPanel.com), while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's worthwhile to point out that, by default, all VPS hosting plans distributed by us are furnished with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is available at no additional license charge, hence the monthly cost of the VPS server hosting plan chosen by the user does not alter. Furthermore, Hepsia probably has the greatest Domain Manager on the hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Accounts

The website hosting CP tool allows customers to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail accounts, to monitor traffic and load logs and to see elaborate statistics concerning the used up and the available system resources. Similar to the virtualization panels, the CPs are created to run under a certain Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known web hosting CPs, performs exclusively under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is made by the same corporation, performs exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as 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 separate set of features governing the levels underneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by offering web hosting solutions to other people. As clients will view what percentage of the system resources is utilized, but will not be able to see the real figures, even a small-size private virtual server package will suffice to set up a small-sized shared hosting web hosting company and receive capital.

The VPS Hosting: an Independent, Modestly Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support websites such as a very popular web store or a big company site. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred choice of both inexperienced clients and advanced customers.
