To satisfy the need for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors initiated an intermediate web hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web hosting server that performs just like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting package. On the other hand, as many accounts are created on the same physical web hosting server and each client pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting plan is markedly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting plan is a little more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared website hosting package, but its resources surpass decidedly those of the shared plan.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is insulated from all other accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where users can take a glimpse at all running processes and terminate or restart them, update server-side software, watch the consumed and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several instances of software systems used for creating and handling Virtual Private Server packages. They involve various requirements with regard to the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can operate on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete VPSs.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization console gives the customer the power to administer the VPS hosting independently from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support team to restart a specific service or recover a backup. If the customer is not skilled enough, however, we have an optional upgrade that incorporates Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of virtual web hosting server datacenter facility locations to select from: the USA, Britain and Australia.

Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the VPS web hosting server are managed via a website hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with web hosting accounts, users get one specific hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting package, hosting providers typically provide a number of website hosting CPs to choose from, and the more competent users can install and utilize the web hosting CP they like. Some virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render it easier for the user. Unluckily, most website hosting CPs are not cost-free. Some of these demand a monthly fee (cPanel wants $13 USD/month, check BuycPanel.com), while others require a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about website hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts furnished by us are stocked with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is offered at no additional license charge, hence the monthly price of the virtual web server package selected by the customer does not fluctuate. Furthermore, Hepsia perhaps has the best Domain Manager on the hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Packages

The CP GUI enables users to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and mail address accounts, to see traffic and load logs and to watch thorough stats concerning the utilized and the free resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are designed to operate under a particular Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the best known web hosting Control Panels, works only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is developed by the same company, operates solely under Windows. Other website hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some web hosting Control Panels over others is that they include different levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of specs governing the levels below, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by offering web hosting plans to other persons. As clients will know what percentage of the system resources is utilized, but will not observe the real numbers, even a small-size VPS web hosting account will be enough to open a small-size shared web hosting web hosting corporation and gain money.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Cut-Rate Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a busy online store or a huge corporate website. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred pick of both rookies and accomplished users.
