What Actually is VPS web hosting?

To answer the demand for low cost, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors presented a midway website hosting platform - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that acts exactly like a : dedicated server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting package. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are created on the very same physical web server and each client pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting account is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic VPS web hosting package is a bit more expensive than a hi-end shared web hosting account, but its resources excel decidedly those of the shared website hosting account.

Each individual account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization panel where customers can keep track of all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software, monitor the used up and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few examples of virtualization platforms used for setting up and managing private virtual server accounts. They have diverse requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, etc. For instance, KVM can run on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these OSs to be activated on the concrete virtual private web servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization system lends the user the freedom to manage the VPS web hosting independently from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support team to reboot a service or recover a backup. If the client is not skilled enough, though, we provide a voluntary upgrade that involves Operating System and software application installation and update procedures, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a couple of VPS web hosting server data center facility locations to pick from: America, England and Australia.

CPs for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual web server are tackled through a web hosting CP user interface, similar to a common shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with web hosting plans, users obtain one concrete website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS web hosting account, providers traditionally present a bunch of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more advanced users can install and avail of the web hosting Control Panel they like. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting CP through them to render things easier for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting CPs are not free of charge. Some of these ask for a monthly fee (cPanel asks for 13 USD/month, have a glimpse at, while others request a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS web hosting, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS web hosting packages offered by us are stocked with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is obtainable at no additional license cost, thus the monthly price of the VPS hosting plan chosen by the customer does not alter. Besides, Hepsia probably offers the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Web Hosting Packages

The hosting CP user interface permits customers to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail accounts, to see bandwidth and load logs and to observe elaborate stats concerning the used up and the free system resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are devised to work under a particular OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the best known web hosting Control Panels, functions only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is invented by the same designer, operates only under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some Control Panels over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a separate set of specifications governing the levels beneath, so it is simple to set up a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by selling web hosting accounts to other persons. As customers will be informed about what percentage of the system resources is used up, but will not be able to view the real figures, even a small VPS web server hosting account will suffice to establish a small-size shared web hosting web hosting enterprise and obtain cash.

The VPS Web Hosting: an Independent, Cut-Price Solution

A VPS web hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support online portals such as a busy web store or a big company site. As its management is simple, it is the preferred pick of both novices and skilled clients.
