To satisfy the need for moderately priced, but reliable hosting services, companies launched a transitional website hosting platform - the VPS. This is a virtual imitation of a server that performs exactly like a : dedicated web server and is much more powerful than any shared hosting solution. At the same time, as a number of accounts are hosted on the same physical web server and each client pays for their account, the price for a VPS solution is markedly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS package is a little more high-priced than the most powerful shared web hosting package, but its resources exceed decidedly those of the shared website hosting package.

VPS Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is insulated from all other accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization panel where customers can watch all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, have a glimpse at the utilized and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several instances of virtualization panels used for setting up and administering virtual web server accounts. They involve diverse requirements regarding the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can work on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete VPSs.

Managed VPS Services

The virtualization console lends the customer the power to manage the VPS independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to restart a given service or retrieve a backup. If the customer is not experienced, however, we provide an optional upgrade that incorporates Operating System and software application installation and update operations, VPS backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have several virtual web server datacenter facility locations to select from: the United States of America, the UK and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual web hosting server are tackled via a web hosting CP tool, similar to a typical shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with website hosting plans, customers obtain one particular web hosting CP, while with a VPS package, providers normally offer a bunch of hosting CPs to pick from, and the more competent clients can install and avail of the website hosting Control Panel they want. Some virtualization consoles support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to render things simpler for the customer. Unfortunately, the majority of the website hosting CPs are paid. Some ask for a monthly fee (cPanel requires 13 dollars/month, check out BuycPanel.com), while others request a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all VPS accounts delivered by us include the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is obtainable at no further license charge, so the monthly cost of the virtual private hosting server account chosen by the user does not alter. In addition, Hepsia perhaps offers the best Domain Manager on the website hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Accounts

The hosting Control Panel interface enables customers to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and mailbox accounts, to observe bandwidth and load logs and to monitor detailed stats regarding the consumed and the free system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the CPs are created to function under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web hosting Control Panels, operates solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same designer, runs exclusively under Windows. Other CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting Control Panels over others is that they include different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of specs governing the levels beneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting plans to other persons. As customers will watch what amount of the system resources is consumed, but will not be able to view the actual figures, even a small-size virtual web server plan will be enough to start a small-sized shared web hosting website hosting enterprise and receive cash.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Cut-Rate Solution

A VPS is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support sites such as a highly visited online store or a huge corporate web site. As its management is simple, it is the preferred pick of both inexperienced users and qualified users.
