What Indeed is VPS web hosting?

To satisfy the demand for inexpensive, but reliable hosting solutions, distributors introduced a transitional hosting solution - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that operates quite like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared website hosting package. At the same time, as numerous accounts are set up on the same physical web server and each client pays for their account, the cost of a VPS web hosting account is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A low-end VPS web hosting package is a little more expensive than a hi-end shared website hosting plan, but its system resources surpass by far those of the shared website hosting account.

VPS Web Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization console where users can observe all running tasks and terminate or restart them, update server-side software applications, have a glimpse at the utilized and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of examples of software platforms utilized for creating and administering virtual private web server hosting packages. They have various requirements with regard to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can perform on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual virtual web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Services

The virtualization panel offers the customer the freedom to administer the VPS web hosting independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to restart a given service or restore a backup. If the user is not competent enough, though, we have an optional upgrade that includes OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a bunch of private virtual web hosting server server farm locations to choose from: the United States of America, Britain and Australia.

CPs for VPS Web Hosting

The domains and the content on the virtual private web hosting server are tackled through a website hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a common shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with web hosting plans, users obtain one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS web hosting plan, web hosting providers normally provide a bunch of website hosting Control Panels to pick from, and the more practiced users can install and use the web hosting CP they want. Some virtualization consoles support installing a Control Panel through them to render it simpler for the client. Sadly, most CPs are not free of cost. Some of these ask for a monthly tax (cPanel requests 13 dollars/month, have a glance at, while others ask for a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS web hosting, it's good to mention that, by default, all VPS web hosting packages offered by us incorporate the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It includes unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no further license charge, therefore the monthly price of the VPS web server hosting package chosen by the client does not fluctuate. What's more, Hepsia perhaps offers the best Domain Manager on the CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Web Hosting Packages

The web hosting Control Panel interface enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail box accounts, to monitor web traffic and load logs and to see elaborate statistics concerning the consumed and the left resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the Control Panels are designed to perform under a specific OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most well known web hosting Control Panels, works exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is constructed by the same firm, works only under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some website hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of functions controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and start making money by offering web hosting solutions to other people. As customers will watch what amount of the resources is used up, but will not be aware of the real figures, even a low-end private virtual web server hosting account will suffice to start a small-size shared web hosting web hosting enterprise and receive cash.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Affordably Priced Solution

A VPS web hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a highly visited online store or a big company site. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred choice of both inexperienced customers and capable users.
