What Indeed is VPS web hosting?

To satisfy the demand for cheap, but reliable hosting solutions, distributors launched an intermediate web hosting platform - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that behaves quite like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting plan. On the other hand, as numerous accounts are hosted on the very same physical web hosting server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS web hosting package is markedly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS web hosting plan is a bit more expensive than the most powerful shared web hosting package, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared web hosting plan.

Each given account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where users can view all running tasks and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software applications, take a look at the utilized and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several examples of software systems used for creating and handling virtual web server hosting packages. They involve various requirements about the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they support, etc. For example, KVM can perform on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual Virtual Private Servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Services

The virtualization console lends the customer the freedom to manage the VPS web hosting autonomously from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their support team to restart a given service or restore a backup. If the user is not an expert, though, we include a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of VPS web server server farm locations to choose from: the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Website hosting Control Panels for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the content on the virtual web hosting server are tackled through a web hosting CP tool, similar to a conventional shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with web hosting accounts, customers get one specific web hosting CP, while with a VPS web hosting package, hosting providers usually provide a bunch of web hosting Control Panels to choose from, and the more skilled users can install and utilize the website hosting Control Panel they want. Certain virtualization systems support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render things simpler for the user. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are paid. Some of them require a monthly fee (cPanel asks for $13/month, go to, while others request a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web hosting, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all VPS web hosting plans furnished by us are supplied with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no additional licence charge, therefore the monthly cost of the Virtual Private Server web hosting account selected by the user does not change. What's more, Hepsia probably includes the best Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Web Hosting Packages

The web hosting CP user interface enables customers to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail address accounts, to monitor web traffic and load logs and to take a glimpse at detailed stats concerning the consumed and the available resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the web hosting CPs are constructed to run under a given OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most popular web hosting CPs, performs exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same company, works exclusively under Windows. Other website hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given web hosting CPs over others is that they have different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of functions controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting solutions to other persons. As clients will view what percentage of the system resources is used up, but will not observe the actual numbers, even a low-end virtual private web hosting server package will suffice to set up a small-size shared web hosting web hosting enterprise and obtain money.
