VPS Web Hosting Explanation

To meet the demand for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting services, vendors commenced an intermediate website hosting environment - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web server that functions quite like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting solution. At the same time, as lots of accounts are created on the same physical web server and each client pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting solution is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic VPS web hosting package is a bit more expensive than the most advanced shared web hosting plan, but its resources surpass decidedly those of the shared web hosting plan.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each specific account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where users can see all running processes and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software applications, have a look at the consumed and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few examples of virtualization systems utilized for creating and administering virtual server web hosting packages. They involve diverse requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, etc. For example, Virtuozzo can operate on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual VPS hosting servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization panel lends the client the freedom to administer the VPS web hosting independently from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their customer support staff to reboot a specific service or recover a backup. If the customer is not competent enough, however, we offer a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several private virtual web hosting server data center facility locations to pick from: America, the UK and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the content on the virtual web server are manipulated through a hosting CP GUI, similar to a traditional shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with web hosting packages, clients get one concrete hosting CP, while with a VPS web hosting account, providers normally give several Control Panels to pick from, and the more proficient users can install and utilize the web hosting CP they wish. Certain virtualization panels support installing a website hosting CP through them to render it easier for the client. Unfortunately, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not free of cost. Some of them require a monthly fee (cPanel asks for $13/month, have a look at, while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting, it's worthwhile to point out that, by default, all VPS web hosting accounts provided by us are equipped with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is available at no additional licence cost, thus the monthly cost of the Virtual Private Server account picked by the user does not fluctuate. What's more, Hepsia perhaps offers the finest Domain Manager on the CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Web Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel user interface enables customers to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and mail accounts, to monitor traffic and load logs and to watch thorough stats concerning the utilized and the remaining system resources. Like the virtualization panels, the Control Panels are intended to operate under a certain Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known website hosting CPs, works solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is constructed by the very same company, performs solely under Windows. Other website hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some website hosting CPs over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of specifications controlling the levels beneath, so it is simple to establish a reseller web hosting website and start making money by selling web hosting packages to other persons. As clients will see what amount of the resources is used up, but will not observe the actual numbers, even a low-end Virtual Private Server web hosting account will be enough to establish a small shared website hosting web hosting company and receive money.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Autonomous, Economical Solution

A VPS web hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a very popular web store or a big company website. As its management is simple, it is the preferred choice of both newcomers and trained clients.
