Description of VPS

To fulfill the demand for moderately priced, but reliable hosting services, providers introduced a midway website hosting environment - the VPS. This is a virtual emulation of a web server that functions precisely like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting package. At the same time, as a number of accounts are created on the same physical hosting server and each person pays for their account, the cost of a VPS solution is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS account is a bit more expensive than the most feature-rich shared web hosting package, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared website hosting package.

Each particular account is insulated from all other accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be rebooted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where users can observe all running processes and stop or restart them, update server-side software, observe the used up and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a few instances of virtualization platforms used for creating and managing private virtual web server hosting packages. They have diverse requirements in relation to the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can work on physical 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 Virtual Private Servers.

Managed VPS Services

The virtualization panel offers the user the freedom to manage the VPS autonomously from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to restart a given service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not an expert, however, we include a voluntary upgrade that involves Operating System and software installation and update procedures, VPS backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a handful of virtual hosting server server farm locations to pick from: the United States, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS

The domains and the web content on the virtual web hosting server are managed via a hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting plan's. The contrast is that with web hosting plans, users receive one particular website hosting CP, while with a VPS account, providers normally provide a handful of website hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more skillful customers can install and avail of the website hosting CP they want. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a hosting Control Panel through them to make things simpler for the client. Unluckily, most Control Panels are not cost-free. Some of these demand a monthly fee (cPanel demands $13/month, take a glimpse at BuycPanel.com), while others request a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about website hosting CP-supplied VPS, it's worthwhile to point out that, by default, all VPS plans furnished by us are fitted out with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no additional license cost, thus the monthly price of the virtual private web server hosting package selected by the customer does not fluctuate. Moreover, Hepsia perhaps has the finest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Packages

The hosting Control Panel interface permits customers to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail box accounts, to monitor traffic and load logs and to take a glimpse at elaborate statistics concerning the consumed and the available system resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the hosting Control Panels are built to run under a given Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most popular website hosting CPs, operates only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is tailored by the same designer, functions solely under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several OSs. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given website hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of specifications governing the levels below, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting services to other persons. As clients will monitor what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not know the actual numbers, even a small-size virtual server plan will be enough to launch a small-size shared web hosting web hosting firm and obtain capital.

The VPS: an Autonomous, Cut-Rate Solution

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