VPS Hosting Unmasked

To satisfy the need for moderately priced, but reliable hosting services, providers commenced an intermediate web hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a server that behaves exactly like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting package. At the same time, as many accounts are hosted on the very same physical web hosting server and each person pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting package is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting package is a bit more expensive than the most powerful shared hosting account, but its system resources exceed by far those of the shared plan.

Each separate account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where clients can monitor all running tasks and terminate or restart them, update server-side applications, keep track of the used up and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several examples of software applications used for creating and handling private virtual web hosting server packages. They involve different requirements about the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these OSs to be activated on the actual virtual private web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization platform offers the user the power to manage the VPS hosting independently from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to reboot a service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not skilled enough, however, we offer an optional upgrade that contains OS and software installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several private virtual hosting server datacenter locations to pick from: North America, Britain and Australia.

Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the content on the virtual private web hosting server are handled through a website hosting CP user interface, similar to a normal shared web hosting plan's. The contrast is that with web hosting packages, customers receive one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting account, web hosting providers usually give a handful of CPs to pick from, and the more proficient clients can install and utilize the web hosting Control Panel they want. Some virtualization panels support installing a website hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the customer. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not charge-free. Some of them ask for a monthly fee (cPanel asks for thirteen dollars/month, have a peek at, while others require a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss website hosting CP-supplied VPS hosting, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting packages offered by us are stocked with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is available at no extra licence charge, thus the monthly price of the virtual private web server plan selected by the customer does not fluctuate. Furthermore, Hepsia perhaps includes the finest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel interface enables users to handle domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mailbox accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to take a look at thorough statistics about the used up and the left system resources. Like the virtualization panels, the website hosting Control Panels are developed to function under a given OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used website hosting CPs, functions only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is fabricated by the very same company, operates solely under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of functionalities controlling the levels underneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by reselling web hosting services to other people. As customers will know what amount of the system resources is utilized, but will not be able to see the real figures, even a small-size VPS server package will suffice to set up a small shared web hosting web hosting enterprise and gain cash.
