VPS Hosting Description

To satisfy the demand for affordable, but reliable hosting services, providers launched a midway web hosting platform - the VPS. This is a virtual emulation of a server that works precisely like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared website hosting account. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are set up on the very same physical web server and each user pays for their account, the price for a VPS account is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS package is a little more high-priced than the most powerful shared hosting package, but its system resources surpass by far those of the shared website hosting plan.

Each separate account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be restarted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization console where users can keep track of all running processes and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software, have a look at the utilized and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few instances of software applications utilized for setting up and handling VPS web hosting server accounts. They have various requirements in regard to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For example, KVM can run on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual web servers.

Managed VPS Services

The virtualization platform offers the user the freedom to administer the VPS autonomously from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their technical support staff to reboot a specific service or restore a backup. If the client is not an expert, though, we offer a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software application installation and update operations, VPS backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a handful of private virtual hosting server datacenter facility locations to pick from: the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Website Hosting CPs for VPS

The domain names and the web content on the virtual private web server are administered through a website hosting Control Panel GUI, similar to a normal shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with website hosting packages, customers get one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS account, hosting providers usually present a handful of web hosting CPs to select from, and the more tech-savvy customers can install and use the web hosting Control Panel they want. Certain virtualization systems support installing a website hosting CP through them to render it easier for the user. Unfortunately, most web hosting Control Panels are not charge-free. Some of these demand a monthly fee (cPanel charges thirteen dollars/month, visit BuycPanel.com), while others request a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss website hosting CP-equipped VPS, it's good to state that, by default, all VPS packages distributed by us are supplied with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia comes at no extra licence charge, thus the monthly cost of the private virtual web server hosting package selected by the client does not fluctuate. Moreover, Hepsia perhaps sports the best Domain Manager on the Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Packages

The web hosting Control Panel tool permits customers to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mailbox accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to monitor elaborate stats about the consumed and the left resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are conceived to work under a particular OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the best known web hosting CPs, performs only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is created by the very same corporation, functions only under Windows. Other hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting CPs over others is that they include several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of features controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to set up a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting services to other people. As customers will keep track of what percentage of the system resources is consumed, but will not observe the actual figures, even a small VPS server web hosting package will suffice to run a small-sized shared website hosting website hosting enterprise and gain capital.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support sites such as a busy web store or a large corporate portal. As its management is easy, it is the favored pick of both rookies and capable customers.
