What Does VPS Hosting Represent?

To satisfy the demand for low-priced, but reliable hosting services, vendors launched an intermediate website hosting solution - the VPS. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that behaves just like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting solution. At the same time, as numerous accounts are hosted on the same physical web server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a VPS plan is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS package is a bit more high-priced than the most advanced shared hosting package, but its resources excel by far those of the shared website hosting plan.

VPS Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be restarted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization panel where users can see all running tasks and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software applications, observe the utilized and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several instances of software programs utilized for setting up and managing private virtual web server hosting accounts. They involve diverse requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these OSs to be activated on the actual private virtual servers.

Managed VPS Services

The virtualization console lends the user the freedom to administer the VPS autonomously from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to reboot a service or recover a backup. If the client is not proficient, however, we have a voluntary upgrade that comprises OS and software installation and update operations, VPS backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a bunch of private virtual server server farm locations to select from: the USA, Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS

The domains and the web content on the virtual web hosting server are managed via a web hosting CP interface, similar to a traditional shared web hosting plan's. The contrast is that with website hosting accounts, clients receive one particular website hosting CP, while with a VPS plan, hosting providers normally provide a bunch of Control Panels to select from, and the more tech-savvy clients can install and utilize the website hosting CP they wish. Some virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render it easier for the user. Unluckily, most website hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some of those require a monthly fee (cPanel requests $13 USD/month, go to, while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss web hosting CP-supplied VPS, it's good to state that, by default, all VPS plans provided by us are provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is offered at no extra license charge, so the monthly cost of the virtual private hosting server plan selected by the client does not alter. Besides, Hepsia probably sports the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Packages

The website hosting CP interface enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email box accounts, to view bandwidth and load logs and to monitor detailed stats concerning the consumed and the available resources. Like the virtualization panels, the hosting CPs are created to function under a certain Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web hosting Control Panels, functions only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same corporation, operates solely under Windows. Other website hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain website hosting CPs over others is that they include different levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of features controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting solutions to other persons. As clients will keep track of what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not know the actual figures, even a small virtual web server hosting account will be enough to open a small-size shared web hosting website hosting enterprise and earn capital.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Low-Priced Solution

A VPS is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web sites such as a very famous online store or a large corporate portal. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred selection of both inexperienced users and experienced customers.
