What In Fact is VPS web hosting?

To fulfill the need for moderately priced, but reliable hosting solutions, providers initiated an intermediate website hosting environment - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web server that behaves precisely like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared hosting solution. At the same time, as a number of accounts are hosted on the same physical server and each user pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting plan is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A low-end VPS web hosting package is slightly more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared website hosting account, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared website hosting account.

Each given account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where clients can take a glimpse at all running processes and abort or reboot them, update server-side software, take a look at the utilized and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several examples of software programs utilized for setting up and administering Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts. They have diverse requirements with regard to the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For example, KVM can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete virtual servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Services

The virtualization platform gives the user the power to administer the VPS web hosting autonomously from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support staff to restart a specific service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not competent enough, however, we offer a voluntary upgrade that encompasses Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a couple of VPS web hosting server datacenter locations to select from: North America, England and Australia.

CPs for VPS Web Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual hosting server are handled via a website hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a typical shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with website hosting plans, users get one specific web hosting CP, while with a VPS web hosting account, web hosting providers commonly present a couple of website hosting CPs to choose from, and the more knowledgeable clients can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they like. Some virtualization systems support installing a website hosting CP through them to make things easier for the customer. Unfortunately, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not free. Some of them demand a monthly tax (cPanel charges $13 USD/month, visit, while others request a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS web hosting, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS web hosting packages furnished by us come with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no further license charge, therefore the monthly cost of the private virtual web server hosting account chosen by the client does not alter. In addition, Hepsia perhaps includes the finest Domain Manager on the website hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Web Hosting Packages

The website hosting CP interface enables customers to handle domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mail accounts, to observe traffic and load logs and to see comprehensive statistics regarding the used up and the free system resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the hosting CPs are developed to function under a particular Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used CPs, performs exclusively under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is constructed by the very same company, runs exclusively under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain Control Panels over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of specs controlling the levels beneath, so it is simple to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting services to other individuals. As clients will be informed about what amount of the resources is utilized, but will not know the actual numbers, even a small VPS web server package will suffice to set up a small-size shared hosting website hosting company and obtain money.
