What Does VPS Hosting Denote?

To satisfy the demand for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting solutions, providers presented an intermediate website hosting environment - the VPS. This is a virtual simulation of a web hosting server that performs exactly like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting account. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are set up on the very same physical web server and each individual pays for their account, the price for a VPS package is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic VPS plan is a bit more expensive than a hi-end shared website hosting plan, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared hosting plan.

VPS Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization panel where users can see all running processes and terminate or restart them, update server-side software, view the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few examples of virtualization platforms used for setting up and managing VPS web hosting server accounts. They have diverse requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, etc. For example, KVM can perform on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be installed on the actual VPS hosting servers.

Managed VPS Solutions

The virtualization platform gives the customer the freedom to administer the VPS autonomously from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their customer support staff to restart a given service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not experienced, though, we provide an optional upgrade that comprises Operating System and software installation and update procedures, VPS backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of private virtual web server datacenter facility locations to select from: the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Website Hosting CPs for VPS

The domains and the content on the virtual web hosting server are managed via a web hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with hosting packages, customers get one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS account, hosting providers usually provide a couple of web hosting CPs to select from, and the more proficient users can install and avail of the hosting CP they wish. Certain virtualization panels support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render things easier for the user. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some of these demand a monthly tax (cPanel wants 13 dollars/month, have a glimpse at BuycPanel.com), while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we address Control Panel-supplied VPS, it's worthwhile to point out that, by default, all VPS accounts supplied by us are supplied with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is available at no further license charge, therefore the monthly cost of the virtual server web hosting package selected by the user does not fluctuate. Moreover, Hepsia probably offers the finest Domain Manager on the hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Accounts

The website hosting CP GUI permits clients to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and mail address accounts, to monitor traffic and load logs and to see exhaustive stats regarding the used up and the left system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are built to operate under a given Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the best known hosting Control Panels, performs only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is constructed by the very same designer, operates exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain web hosting CPs over others is that they have several levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a separate set of functionalities governing the levels below, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting services to other individuals. As customers will watch what percentage of the resources is consumed, but will not be aware of the actual figures, even a small VPS web server hosting plan will be enough to open a small shared web hosting hosting firm and collect capital.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Affordably Priced Solution

A VPS is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support websites such as a highly visited online store or a huge company website. As its management is easy, it is the favored selection of both inexperienced customers and experienced clients.
