VPS Hosting Unveiled

To answer the need for economical, but reliable hosting services, providers introduced an intermediate hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a web hosting server that acts quite like a : dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared hosting account. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are created on the very same physical hosting server and each user pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting plan is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting package is a little more high-priced than the most powerful shared web hosting account, but its resources exceed by far those of the shared web hosting plan.

Each single account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be restarted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization console where clients can take a look at all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software, keep an eye on the used up and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of examples of virtualization panels used for creating and handling VPS hosting server accounts. They involve diverse requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, etc. For instance, KVM can perform on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual private hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization platform gives the client the power to administer the VPS hosting independently from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support staff to restart a specific service or recover a backup. If the client is not skilled enough, though, we offer an optional upgrade that encompasses Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a handful of VPS hosting server data center facility locations to pick from: the United States, the UK and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the VPS hosting server are handled via a website hosting CP user interface, similar to a typical shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with web hosting plans, customers receive one concrete web hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting plan, hosting providers commonly provide a bunch of web hosting CPs to pick from, and the more practiced customers can install and avail of the web hosting CP they like. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a hosting Control Panel through them to render things easier for the customer. Unluckily, most web hosting Control Panels are paid. Some of those ask for a monthly tax (cPanel wants 13 dollars/month, take a gaze at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss website hosting CP-equipped VPS hosting, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts supplied by us include the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is obtainable at no further license charge, so the monthly price of the virtual web hosting server package selected by the client does not alter. Last, but not least, Hepsia perhaps sports the best Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Hosting Plans

The website hosting CP user interface permits customers to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail box accounts, to observe web traffic and load logs and to take a glimpse at elaborate statistics concerning the consumed and the available system resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are devised to run under a given Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web hosting Control Panels, functions solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is conceived by the same designer, runs only under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given Control Panels over others is that they have different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of features governing the levels underneath, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting solutions to other individuals. As clients will keep track of what percentage of the system resources is consumed, but will not be able to view the actual numbers, even a small-size virtual web hosting server account will be enough to start a small shared hosting web hosting firm and collect cash.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Economical Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web sites such as a highly visited web store or a large company portal. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred choice of both inexperienced clients and expert users.
