To satisfy the demand for affordably priced, but reliable hosting services, distributors started a midway website hosting platform - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a hosting server that behaves precisely like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting account. At the same time, as numerous accounts are hosted on the same physical web server and each individual pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting plan is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting package is slightly more expensive than the most feature-rich shared website hosting account, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared web hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization console where users can observe all running tasks and abort or restart them, update server-side applications, view the utilized and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few instances of virtualization systems utilized for creating and handling VPS accounts. They involve various requirements about the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can run on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete Virtual Private Servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization console offers the client the freedom to administer the VPS hosting independently from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support staff to restart a given service or recover a backup. If the client is not competent enough, though, we have a voluntary upgrade that encompasses Operating System and software application installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a bunch of virtual hosting server data center locations to pick from: the United States, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the VPS server are administered via a web hosting Control Panel GUI, similar to a classic shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with website hosting accounts, clients get one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting package, web hosting providers typically provide a number of web hosting Control Panels to choose from, and the more trained users can install and make use of the Control Panel they like. Certain virtualization panels support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to make things simpler for the client. Unfortunately, most website hosting CPs are paid. Some of those require a monthly fee (cPanel requests 13 USD/month, have a glimpse at, while others request a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's worthwhile to point out that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts provided by us are equipped with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is available at no additional licence cost, thus the monthly price of the Virtual Private Server account chosen by the client does not fluctuate. What's more, Hepsia probably offers the best Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Accounts

The web hosting Control Panel GUI allows clients to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail accounts, to observe bandwidth and load logs and to view elaborate statistics about the consumed and the available resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the hosting CPs are built to perform under a given Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most popular Control Panels, operates exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same company, operates solely under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some website hosting Control Panels over others is that they include different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of features controlling the levels below, so it is simple to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting packages to other individuals. As customers will be informed about what amount of the resources is used up, but will not observe the real numbers, even a low-end virtual web server package will suffice to set up a small-size shared web hosting website hosting firm and earn money.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Low-Cost Solution

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