To meet the need for inexpensive, but reliable hosting solutions, providers initiated an intermediate web hosting platform - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a server that functions quite like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared hosting solution. At the same time, as multiple accounts are set up on the same physical hosting server and each individual 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 a hi-end shared web hosting plan, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared hosting plan.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where customers can keep track of all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, see the consumed and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several instances of virtualization platforms utilized for setting up and managing virtual private web hosting server packages. They have diverse requirements regarding the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can perform on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete private virtual servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization console 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 client support staff to restart a specific service or retrieve a backup. If the user is not skilled enough, though, we include an optional upgrade that includes OS and software application installation and update operations, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a handful of virtual server datacenter locations to choose from: America, the UK and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS Web Hosting

The domains and the web content on the private virtual web hosting server are tackled through a hosting CP user interface, similar to a classic shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with website hosting plans, clients receive one particular website hosting CP, while with a VPS web hosting package, hosting providers normally present several web hosting Control Panels to choose from, and the more expert customers can install and utilize the web hosting Control Panel they like. Some virtualization systems support installing a website hosting CP through them to render it easier for the user. Unfortunately, the majority of the website hosting CPs are not charge-free. Some of these require a monthly tax (cPanel requests 13 dollars/month, have a peek at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other hosting Control Panels that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss hosting CP-equipped VPS web hosting, it's good to state that, by default, all VPS web hosting plans provided by us are supplied with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no additional license charge, therefore the monthly cost of the virtual private hosting server package chosen by the user does not fluctuate. In addition, Hepsia probably has the best Domain Manager on the CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Web Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel user interface enables customers to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mail accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to have a look at detailed statistics concerning the utilized and the remaining system resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the web hosting Control Panels are built to run under a certain Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most popular web hosting CPs, operates solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is devised by the very same company, performs solely under Windows. Other web hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain web hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of functionalities governing the levels underneath, so it is simple to create a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting accounts to other people. As clients will know what percentage of the resources is utilized, but will not see the actual numbers, even a low-end VPS web server hosting account will suffice to establish a small-size shared web hosting website hosting company and collect money.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Cut-Price Solution

A VPS web hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web portals such as a highly visited online store or a big company web page. As its administration is easy, it is the favored pick of both inexperienced clients and expert users.
