VPS Web Hosting Description

To fulfill the need for low-priced, but reliable hosting services, distributors commenced a midway website hosting environment - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web server that behaves exactly like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared hosting plan. At the same time, as lots of accounts are set up on the same physical web server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a VPS web hosting solution is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS web hosting account is a little more expensive than a hi-end shared web hosting account, but its system resources exceed by far those of the shared web hosting plan.

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 independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where customers can take a look at all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, have a look at the used up and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a couple of instances of software platforms utilized for setting up and handling virtual hosting server packages. They have diverse requirements with respect to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can operate on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual private virtual hosting servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization system lends the client the power to administer the VPS web hosting independently from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their client support team to restart a given service or recover a backup. If the client is not tech-savvy, however, we include an optional upgrade that incorporates Operating System and software installation and update procedures, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a handful of VPS web hosting server data center facility locations to select from: America, Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the virtual hosting server are handled via a web hosting Control Panel GUI, similar to a traditional shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with web hosting plans, users obtain one specific web hosting CP, while with a VPS web hosting package, providers usually present several web hosting Control Panels to pick from, and the more advanced customers can install and make use of the website hosting CP they want. Certain virtualization panels support installing a website hosting CP through them to make things easier for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting CPs are not free of cost. Some of these ask for a monthly fee (cPanel wants $13 USD/month, take a look at BuycPanel.com), while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS web hosting, it's useful to point out that, by default, all VPS web hosting plans furnished by us arrive with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no additional licence cost, hence the monthly cost of the VPS web server plan picked by the user does not alter. What's more, Hepsia probably offers the greatest Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Web Hosting Plans

The website hosting Control Panel interface permits users to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email box accounts, to monitor web traffic and load logs and to monitor exhaustive stats about the used up and the available system resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are conceived to perform under a certain OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous website hosting CPs, runs only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is conceived by the same designer, functions solely under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting Control Panels over others is that they have several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a separate set of specifications controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting packages to other persons. As customers will observe what amount of the system resources is consumed, but will not be aware of the real numbers, even a small-size virtual hosting server package will suffice to establish a small-sized shared website hosting web hosting enterprise and receive money.

A VPS web hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support websites such as a very famous online store or a big corporate web page. As its management is simple, it is the preferred choice of both rookies and advanced customers.
