VPS Hosting Clarified

To meet the need for moderately priced, but reliable hosting solutions, companies initiated an intermediate web hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a hosting server that acts exactly like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared hosting package. At the same time, as lots of accounts are created on the very same physical web server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting package is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting plan is a little more high-priced than a hi-end shared website hosting package, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization panel where customers can keep track of all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side software applications, keep an eye on the consumed and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a couple of examples of virtualization systems used for creating and administering virtual private hosting server packages. They involve different requirements in relation to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can operate on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be activated on the actual VPS hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization console offers the user the freedom to administer the VPS hosting autonomously from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support team to restart a specific service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not proficient, though, we offer an optional upgrade that involves OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a number of private virtual hosting server server farm facility locations to select from: the United States of America, Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the virtual server are manipulated through a web hosting CP tool, similar to a regular shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with web hosting packages, users receive one particular website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting plan, hosting providers traditionally provide a bunch of web hosting Control Panels to pick from, and the more advanced customers can install and use the website hosting Control Panel they desire. Some virtualization panels support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to make it easier for the customer. Unluckily, most hosting CPs are not cost-free. Some demand a monthly tax (cPanel requests $13 USD/month, check, while others ask for a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other CPs that restrict the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting CP-equipped VPS hosting, it's good to state that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts supplied by us offer the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is obtainable at no additional license cost, therefore the monthly cost of the private virtual web server hosting account selected by the user does not alter. In addition, Hepsia probably has the best Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel GUI enables clients to handle domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail address accounts, to observe traffic and load logs and to take a look at elaborate statistics regarding the consumed and the available resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the CPs are conceived to operate under a given OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known website hosting CPs, runs only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is developed by the same corporation, performs exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain website hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a separate set of specs governing the levels underneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and start making money by selling web hosting plans to other persons. As customers will keep track of what amount of the resources is used up, but will not be aware of the real figures, even a small virtual web hosting server package will suffice to set up a small-size shared web hosting web hosting company and collect cash.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Affordable Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web portals such as a busy web store or a huge company portal. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred selection of both newcomers and practiced clients.
