VPS Web Hosting Unmasked

To fulfill the demand for low cost, but reliable hosting solutions, providers started a transitional website hosting solution - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a web hosting server that operates quite like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared website hosting account. At the same time, as a number of accounts are set up on the same physical web server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS web hosting solution is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS web hosting account is slightly more expensive than a hi-end shared web hosting package, but its resources exceed decidedly those of the shared web hosting package.

Each individual account is isolated from all other accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where clients can see all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side software, watch the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of instances of virtualization panels used for creating and managing virtual private web hosting server packages. They have diverse requirements regarding the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete virtual hosting servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization console lends the customer the freedom to administer the VPS web hosting independently from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to reboot a service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not experienced, however, we provide an optional upgrade that involves Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a handful of virtual private web server datacenter locations to select from: America, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the VPS server are tackled through a hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a common shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with hosting plans, customers receive one specific website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS web hosting plan, providers typically give a handful of web hosting CPs to select from, and the more skillful users can install and make use of the website hosting Control Panel they wish. Some virtualization consoles support installing a website hosting CP through them to render it simpler for the client. Sadly, the majority of the website hosting Control Panels are paid. Some of them require a monthly fee (cPanel charges $13 USD/month, have a look at BuycPanel.com), while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we address web hosting CP-equipped VPS web hosting, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS web hosting plans delivered by us offer the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is offered at no extra licence charge, hence the monthly cost of the private virtual web server account chosen by the client does not fluctuate. Besides, Hepsia probably includes the best Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Web Hosting Accounts

The web hosting CP GUI permits users to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and email box accounts, to keep track of traffic and load logs and to see elaborate statistics about the used up and the available resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are developed to run under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most popular website hosting CPs, functions only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is devised by the very same designer, functions solely under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain web hosting Control Panels over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of specifications controlling the levels underneath, so it is simple to build a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting services to other people. As customers will be informed about what amount of the system resources is consumed, but will not know the actual figures, even a small Virtual Private Server web hosting account will suffice to set up a small-sized shared website hosting hosting firm and obtain cash.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS web hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web pages such as a very popular online store or a big company web page. As its management is simple, it is the favored pick of both rookies and trained users.
