Virtual Private Servers Hosting Definition

To satisfy the demand for inexpensive, but reliable hosting services, suppliers started a midway website hosting environment - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual emulation of a web hosting server that acts quite like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting package. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are set up on the very same physical machine and each user pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers plan is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale virtual private servers plan is a little more high-priced than the most powerful shared hosting package, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared website hosting account.

Each single account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be rebooted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where customers can take a look at all running tasks and terminate or reboot them, update server-side applications, see the used up and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of examples of software applications used for setting up and handling VPS hosting server packages. They involve diverse requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For example, KVM can operate on 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 installed on the concrete private virtual web servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Solutions

The virtualization console gives the user the freedom to administer the virtual private servers autonomously from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support team to reboot a particular service or restore a backup. If the client is not tech-savvy, though, we include a voluntary upgrade that comprises Operating System and software installation and update procedures, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a number of private virtual web hosting server server farm locations to pick from: the United States, the UK and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual web server are administered through a web hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a normal shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with website hosting packages, users obtain one concrete hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers package, providers usually present a number of website hosting CPs to select from, and the more experienced users can install and avail of the CP they want. Some virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the customer. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not free of cost. Some of them require a monthly fee (cPanel demands $13/month, have a glimpse at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of website hosting CP-supplied virtual private servers, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all virtual private servers plans offered by us come with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is attainable at no extra license charge, therefore the monthly cost of the VPS server web hosting account chosen by the user does not alter. Besides, Hepsia probably offers the best Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based Virtual Private Servers Plans

The web hosting Control Panel interface enables users to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail accounts, to keep track of web traffic and load logs and to take a glimpse at exhaustive statistics about the utilized and the remaining resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the Control Panels are constructed to function under a particular Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous web hosting CPs, operates only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is constructed by the same corporation, operates exclusively under Windows. Other CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain website hosting CPs over others is that they have several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a separate set of functionalities governing the levels below, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting services to other persons. As customers will observe what amount of the system resources is utilized, but will not be able to see the real numbers, even a small VPS hosting server plan will be enough to run a small shared website hosting website hosting firm and gain money.
