To meet the need for budget, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors presented a midway web hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web server that works precisely like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting plan. At the same time, as multiple accounts are created on the very same physical web server and each user pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting solution is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting package is slightly more expensive than the most advanced shared web hosting plan, but its system resources excel by far those of the shared website hosting account.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization console where customers can see all running tasks and abort or restart them, update server-side software, take a look at the used up and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just several instances of software programs utilized for setting up and handling virtual private web hosting server accounts. They involve diverse requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be activated on the concrete VPS servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization system lends the client the power to administer the VPS hosting independently from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support team to reboot a specific service or retrieve a backup. If the customer is not competent enough, however, we include an optional upgrade that incorporates OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a couple of virtual private web server data center locations to pick from: the USA, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domains and the content on the VPS server are handled through a website hosting CP user interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with website hosting accounts, users get one specific website hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting account, providers commonly offer a couple of web hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more experienced users can install and utilize the website hosting CP they like. Some virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render it simpler for the client. Unfortunately, most web hosting CPs are not free of cost. Some of these demand a monthly tax (cPanel asks for 13 dollars/month, have a look at, while others demand a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we address web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's worthwhile to state that, by default, all VPS hosting plans offered by us ship with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is available at no additional license charge, therefore the monthly price of the virtual server hosting package picked by the user does not fluctuate. Furthermore, Hepsia perhaps includes the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting CP interface permits customers to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and email box accounts, to monitor bandwidth and load logs and to view thorough stats about the utilized and the remaining system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the hosting Control Panels are constructed to run under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the best known website hosting Control Panels, performs exclusively under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is fabricated by the same firm, operates solely under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of functions governing the levels below, so it is simple to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting plans to other individuals. As customers will see what percentage of the resources is utilized, but will not be aware of the real figures, even a small-size virtual server package will suffice to run a small-size shared web hosting website hosting enterprise and receive money.
