Definition of VPS

To answer the need for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting services, suppliers commenced a transitional web hosting platform - the VPS. This is a virtual simulation of a web server that works exactly like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting solution. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are created on the very same physical machine and each user pays for their account, the price for a VPS package is much lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS plan is a little more expensive than a hi-end shared website hosting plan, but its resources exceed by far those of the shared website hosting plan.

VPS Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be rebooted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization console where clients can view all running tasks and stop or restart them, update server-side applications, take a look at the consumed and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a couple of instances of virtualization panels used for creating and handling virtual web hosting server packages. They involve diverse requirements in relation to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For example, KVM can perform on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these OSs to be activated on the actual VPSs.

Managed VPS Solutions

The virtualization console offers the user the power to manage the VPS autonomously from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their client support staff to reboot a particular service or retrieve a backup. If the user is not experienced, however, we have a voluntary upgrade that contains OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several virtual private hosting server datacenter locations to pick from: the USA, the UK and Australia.

Website Hosting CPs for VPS

The domain names and the web content on the virtual private hosting server are administered through a web hosting CP user interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with hosting packages, clients get one particular web hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS package, providers traditionally provide a handful of website hosting CPs to choose from, and the more expert users can install and avail of the website hosting CP they want. Certain virtualization panels support installing a CP through them to make it easier for the client. Unluckily, most web hosting CPs are not free. Some of those ask for a monthly tax (cPanel requires 13 dollars/month, visit, while others require a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss Control Panel-supplied VPS, it's worthwhile to point out that, by default, all VPS packages offered by us are stocked with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is available at no further license cost, hence the monthly cost of the Virtual Private Server account picked by the client does not alter. Moreover, Hepsia probably offers the best Domain Manager on the hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Accounts

The web hosting Control Panel interface enables customers to handle domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail box accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to have a glimpse at exhaustive statistics about the consumed and the left system resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the web hosting Control Panels are built to operate under a particular OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web hosting CPs, functions only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same firm, runs solely under Windows. Other Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting CPs over others is that they include different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of specs governing the levels beneath, so it is simple to build a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting solutions to other individuals. As clients will view what percentage of the system resources is consumed, but will not see the actual figures, even a low-end VPS hosting plan will suffice to open a small shared web hosting hosting enterprise and gain money.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Cut-Rate Solution

A VPS is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a very famous web store or a large company web page. As its management is simple, it is the favored selection of both beginners and practiced customers.
