To answer the demand for cut-price, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors initiated a midway hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web server that behaves quite like a : dedicated server and is much more advanced than any shared hosting plan. At the same time, as lots of accounts are created on the very same physical machine and each client pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting package is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting account is slightly more high-priced than the most advanced shared website hosting plan, but its system resources exceed by far those of the shared web hosting package.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where users can take a glimpse at all running tasks and stop or restart them, update server-side applications, keep an eye on the used up and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a couple of examples of software systems utilized for setting up and administering VPS plans. They involve different requirements regarding the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be installed on the actual VPS web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization panel lends the client the freedom to manage the VPS hosting independently from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to reboot a given service or restore a backup. If the client is not competent enough, though, we provide a voluntary upgrade that involves OS and software installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have several virtual hosting server datacenter facility locations to choose from: the United States of America, the UK and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual server are managed through a web hosting CP tool, similar to a common shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with hosting plans, clients obtain one specific CP, while with a VPS hosting package, providers traditionally give a number of website hosting CPs to pick from, and the more skilled clients can install and avail of the web hosting Control Panel they want. Some virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render things easier for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the website hosting Control Panels are not free of cost. Some of those ask for a monthly tax (cPanel asks for $13 USD/month, take a glimpse at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we address web hosting CP-equipped VPS hosting, it's good to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts furnished by us are equipped with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain quotas. Hepsia comes at no additional license cost, so the monthly cost of the VPS server web hosting account chosen by the customer does not fluctuate. Moreover, Hepsia perhaps sports the finest Domain Manager on the Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Packages

The web hosting CP interface allows customers to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail box accounts, to see bandwidth and load logs and to observe elaborate statistics about the used up and the left resources. Comparable with the virtualization panels, the website hosting CPs are built to run under a specific OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web hosting CPs, works solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is fabricated by the very same designer, functions exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain website hosting CPs over others is that they include different levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of functionalities controlling the levels below, so it is easy to establish a reseller web hosting website and start making money by selling web hosting solutions to other persons. As clients will watch what percentage of the resources is consumed, but will not observe the real figures, even a small-size virtual private web server package will be enough to launch a small shared web hosting hosting corporation and gain capital.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Low-Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support websites such as a busy web store or a huge company site. As its management is easy, it is the favored pick of both novices and accomplished clients.
