To meet the demand for budget, but reliable hosting solutions, companies initiated a midway website hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual emulation of a server that functions quite like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting account. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are created on the same physical web server and each person pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting package is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting account is slightly more high-priced than the most advanced shared web hosting account, but its system resources exceed decidedly those of the shared web hosting plan.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be restarted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization console where clients can have a look at all running processes and terminate or restart them, update server-side software, keep track of the used up and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few examples of software programs used for setting up and managing private virtual server hosting packages. They have different requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, etc. For instance, KVM can operate 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 Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete VPS servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization console gives the user the freedom to administer the VPS hosting independently from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support staff to restart a particular service or restore a backup. If the customer is not competent enough, however, we offer a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software application installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of private virtual web hosting server server farm facility locations to choose from: the United States, the UK and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domains and the web content on the virtual server are handled via a Control Panel interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with web hosting packages, users obtain one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting package, web hosting providers traditionally provide a number of website hosting CPs to choose from, and the more proficient clients can install and avail of the web hosting Control Panel they wish. Certain virtualization platforms support installing a website hosting CP through them to render things simpler for the user. Unluckily, most website hosting CPs are not free of charge. Some require a monthly fee (cPanel demands 13 dollars/month, have a gaze at, while others require a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's useful to state that, by default, all VPS hosting plans delivered by us contain the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is obtainable at no additional licence charge, hence the monthly price of the VPS package chosen by the customer does not change. What's more, Hepsia perhaps includes the finest Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel tool allows users to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mail address accounts, to keep track of bandwidth and load logs and to have a look at detailed stats regarding the consumed and the available resources. Like the virtualization panels, the website hosting CPs are conceived to perform under a specific OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most popular website hosting Control Panels, works exclusively under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is made by the very same company, functions only under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given Control Panels over others is that they involve different levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of features controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting packages to other individuals. As clients will monitor what amount of the resources is consumed, but will not know the real figures, even a small private virtual hosting server account will be enough to launch a small-size shared website hosting web hosting enterprise and make cash.

The VPS Hosting: an Independent, Cut-Rate Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a busy web store or a big corporate website. As its administration is easy, it is the favored pick of both inexperienced clients and competent users.
