Definition of VPS Hosting Services

To answer the need for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting solutions, providers initiated a midway website hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a hosting server that operates just like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared website hosting account. On the other hand, 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 account is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS hosting plan is a little more expensive than a hi-end shared website hosting plan, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared website hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual account is insulated from all other accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be rebooted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization panel where clients can watch all running processes and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software applications, see the consumed and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few instances of virtualization consoles utilized for creating and administering VPS hosting server plans. They involve various requirements in relation to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be installed on the actual private virtual web servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization system gives the customer the freedom to administer the VPS hosting independently from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support staff to reboot a specific service or retrieve a backup. If the customer is not tech-savvy, though, we have a voluntary upgrade that incorporates OS and software installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a handful of VPS web server server farm facility locations to select from: the US, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domains and the content on the virtual server are managed through a CP user interface, similar to a classic shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with web hosting plans, clients get one concrete website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting plan, web hosting providers normally present a bunch of website hosting Control Panels to choose from, and the more practiced clients can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they wish. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render things simpler for the user. Unfortunately, most web hosting CPs are not free. Some ask for a monthly tax (cPanel charges $13/month, have a glance at, while others require a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS hosting, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting plans provided by us comprise the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no further license charge, therefore the monthly price of the VPS server plan chosen by the client does not alter. Moreover, Hepsia perhaps offers the finest Domain Manager on the hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel interface allows clients to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail accounts, to see traffic and load logs and to have a glimpse at comprehensive stats regarding the consumed and the remaining system resources. Comparable with the virtualization panels, the web hosting CPs are designed to function under a specific OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most popular website hosting Control Panels, runs only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same firm, operates only under Windows. Other website hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given web hosting Control Panels over others is that they have several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a separate set of functionalities controlling the levels below, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting accounts to other people. As clients will see what percentage of the resources is consumed, but will not be aware of the actual figures, even a low-end private virtual server web hosting account will suffice to set up a small shared web hosting web hosting company and receive cash.

The VPS Hosting: an Independent, Low-Cost Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support sites such as a very popular online store or a huge company web page. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred pick of both newcomers and competent customers.
