Description of VPSs

To answer the demand for affordable, but reliable hosting services, distributors presented a midway web hosting environment - the VPS. This is a virtual emulation of a web server that acts quite like a : dedicated server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting plan. At the same time, as numerous accounts are set up on the same physical hosting server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a VPS solution is markedly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS plan is slightly more expensive than the most advanced shared website hosting plan, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared package.

VPS Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each single account is isolated from all other accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where users can have a glimpse at all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, watch the consumed and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few instances of virtualization panels utilized for creating and administering virtual private web server hosting plans. They have various requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For example, Virtuozzo can work on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual web servers.

Managed VPS Services

The virtualization panel gives the customer the power to administer the VPS independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to restart a given service or restore a backup. If the client is not experienced, though, we offer a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a number of virtual private web hosting server server farm facility locations to select from: the United States of America, the UK and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS

The domains and the web content on the VPS web hosting server are manipulated through a website hosting CP user interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with website hosting plans, users get one particular hosting CP, while with a VPS account, web hosting providers traditionally offer a couple of web hosting CPs to pick from, and the more competent clients can install and use the web hosting Control Panel they like. Some virtualization consoles support installing a website hosting CP through them to render things easier for the customer. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not free of cost. Some require a monthly fee (cPanel requires $13/month, take a glimpse at, while others request a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss website hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS, it's worth pointing out that, by default, all VPS packages supplied by us are furnished with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is available at no additional license cost, so the monthly cost of the private virtual web server package picked by the client does not alter. What's more, Hepsia probably offers the best Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Accounts

The web hosting CP GUI enables users to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email mailbox accounts, to view traffic and load logs and to see exhaustive statistics regarding the used up and the free resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are constructed to function under a particular OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most popular hosting Control Panels, runs solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is designed by the same corporation, operates exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain web hosting Control Panels over others is that they include different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of specs governing the levels below, so it is simple to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting solutions to other people. As clients will see what amount of the system resources is utilized, but will not observe the actual figures, even a small-size private virtual server plan will be enough to run a small-sized shared website hosting website hosting firm and receive capital.

The VPS: an Independent, Cut-Rate Solution

A VPS is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support sites such as a very popular web store or a big corporate portal. As its administration is easy, it is the favored choice of both inexperienced customers and experienced customers.
