To meet the demand for cheap, but reliable hosting solutions, suppliers commenced a transitional website hosting environment - the VPS. This is a virtual emulation of a server that works just like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting plan. At the same time, as lots of accounts are hosted on the same physical hosting server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS solution is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS account is a little more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared website hosting plan, but its resources exceed decidedly those of the shared account.

VPS Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where customers can keep track of all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side software, take a glimpse at the utilized and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a couple of examples of software programs utilized for setting up and administering virtual server web hosting packages. They have different requirements with respect to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For example, KVM 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 allows both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete private virtual hosting servers.

Managed VPS Solutions

The virtualization console offers the client the power to administer the VPS autonomously from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their support team to restart a particular service or restore a backup. If the user is not skilled enough, however, we offer an optional upgrade that comprises OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have several virtual web hosting server data center facility locations to select from: the US, Great Britain and Australia.

CPs for VPS

The domain names and the content on the virtual private hosting server are handled via a hosting CP interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting plan's. The contrast is that with web hosting packages, clients get one concrete website hosting CP, while with a VPS account, providers commonly give a number of Control Panels to choose from, and the more expert customers can install and avail of the website hosting CP they want. Certain virtualization systems support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render it easier for the customer. Unluckily, the majority of the website hosting Control Panels are paid. Some of these demand a monthly fee (cPanel wants 13 USD/month, take a look at BuycPanel.com), while others request a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we address web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS, it's useful to point out that, by default, all VPS packages distributed by us contain the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is obtainable at no further licence charge, therefore the monthly cost of the VPS web server package chosen by the client does not fluctuate. In addition, Hepsia perhaps offers the best Domain Manager on the web hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Packages

The web hosting CP user interface allows clients to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email box accounts, to keep track of traffic and load logs and to view thorough stats about the utilized and the left resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are created to work under a certain OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widespread web hosting CPs, runs solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is conceived by the very same company, performs only under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some web hosting CPs over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of functions controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and start making money by offering web hosting services to other persons. As clients will observe what amount of the system resources is utilized, but will not know the real numbers, even a small virtual private web server hosting plan will suffice to launch a small shared website hosting web hosting enterprise and receive capital.

The VPS: an Independent, Inexpensively Priced Solution

A VPS is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web sites such as a busy online store or a big corporate site. As its management is simple, it is the favored choice of both rookies and competent customers.
