What Exactly is virtual private servers hosting?

To satisfy the need for moderately priced, but reliable hosting services, companies presented a midway web hosting environment - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that behaves just like a : dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting solution. At the same time, as lots of accounts are set up on the same physical web server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers plan is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A low-end virtual private servers plan is slightly more expensive than the most feature-rich shared website hosting account, but its resources surpass decidedly those of the shared website hosting package.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be restarted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where clients can have a look at all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side software applications, take a look at the used up and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few examples of software programs utilized for setting up and handling VPS hosting plans. They have various requirements regarding the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can operate on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete VPS hosting servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Solutions

The virtualization panel gives the user the freedom to manage the virtual private servers autonomously from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their customer support staff to restart a given service or recover a backup. If the user is not an expert, however, we have an optional upgrade that contains Operating System and software installation and update procedures, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a couple of private virtual web server server farm locations to choose from: the US, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Private Servers

The domains and the web content on the Virtual Private Server are handled via a web hosting CP tool, similar to a typical shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with web hosting packages, clients receive one particular web hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers package, providers commonly offer a couple of web hosting CPs to select from, and the more competent clients can install and avail of the website hosting CP they like. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the user. Unluckily, most website hosting CPs are not free of cost. Some of them demand a monthly tax (cPanel requests $13/month, have a glance at BuycPanel.com), while others require a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss web hosting Control Panel-supplied virtual private servers, it's good to mention that, by default, all virtual private servers packages distributed by us incorporate the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is offered at no extra licence cost, thus the monthly price of the VPS hosting plan picked by the user does not alter. Last, but not least, Hepsia probably has the best Domain Manager on the website hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based Virtual Private Servers Accounts

The website hosting CP GUI allows clients to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mailbox accounts, to see traffic and load logs and to have a glimpse at exhaustive statistics about the used up and the free system resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the website hosting Control Panels are constructed to function under a certain Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most popular CPs, operates exclusively under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is designed by the very same corporation, operates solely under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia support several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain website hosting CPs over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of specifications governing the levels underneath, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting packages to other people. As customers will view what amount of the system resources is consumed, but will not be able to view the real numbers, even a small-size private virtual web server account will be enough to establish a small shared website hosting web hosting enterprise and obtain cash.

The Virtual Private Servers: an Independent, Affordably Priced Solution

A virtual private servers is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a very famous web store or a big company web page. As its management is simple, it is the favored pick of both inexperienced users and qualified clients.
