Definition of VPS Hosting Services

To satisfy the demand for affordably priced, but reliable hosting solutions, providers initiated an intermediate web hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a server that acts exactly like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting account. At the same time, as numerous accounts are set up on the same physical machine and each customer pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting solution is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS hosting package is a bit more expensive than the most advanced shared web hosting account, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared website hosting account.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be restarted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization panel where customers can have a glimpse at all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, watch the utilized and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of instances of software applications used for creating and managing VPS web hosting plans. They have different requirements with respect to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can work on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete virtual web servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization console gives the client the freedom to administer the VPS hosting independently from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support team to restart a particular service or recover a backup. If the user is not proficient, however, we have a voluntary upgrade that contains OS and software application installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a number of virtual hosting server server farm locations to pick from: the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the virtual hosting server are dealt with via a web hosting Control Panel GUI, similar to a common shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with web hosting packages, customers obtain one concrete website hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting plan, providers usually provide a bunch of website hosting CPs to select from, and the more knowledgeable clients can install and avail of the web hosting CP they like. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a Control Panel through them to render things simpler for the client. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not charge-free. Some of these demand a monthly tax (cPanel demands $13 USD/month, have a peek at 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 discuss web hosting CP-supplied VPS hosting, it's worth mentioning that, by default, all VPS hosting plans distributed by us are fitted out with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is obtainable at no extra license cost, thus the monthly cost of the VPS web server plan chosen by the user does not alter. Last, but not least, Hepsia perhaps has the best Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting CP GUI enables customers to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail address accounts, to monitor bandwidth and load logs and to see exhaustive statistics concerning the utilized and the available resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the web hosting CPs are created to work under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the best known web hosting Control Panels, functions solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is conceived by the same company, runs only under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given website hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of specifications controlling the levels below, so it is easy to set up a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by reselling web hosting services to other people. As customers will keep track of what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not know the real figures, even a small-size private virtual web server package will suffice to set up a small shared website hosting web hosting enterprise and gain money.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Cut-Price Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support sites such as a busy online store or a big company web site. As its management is easy, it is the preferred choice of both newcomers and competent users.
