To fulfill the demand for low cost, but reliable hosting services, providers presented a transitional web hosting environment - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual simulation of a web server that performs just like a : dedicated web 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 web hosting server and each user pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting account is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS hosting plan is a little more high-priced than a hi-end shared website hosting account, but its system resources exceed decidedly those of the shared web hosting account.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is insulated from all other accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where users can watch all running processes and abort or reboot them, update server-side software applications, watch the consumed and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several examples of software applications used for creating and administering virtual web server plans. They involve diverse requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, etc. For example, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete virtual private hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization panel gives the user the freedom to administer the VPS hosting independently from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their support staff to restart a specific service or retrieve a backup. If the client is not tech-savvy, however, we have an optional upgrade that incorporates OS and software installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of VPS web hosting server datacenter facility locations to pick from: the United States of America, the UK and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domains and the content on the private virtual hosting server are dealt with via a CP GUI, similar to a standard shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with web hosting packages, customers get one particular hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting package, providers normally offer a handful of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more experienced users can install and utilize the hosting Control Panel they wish. Certain virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render things simpler for the user. Sadly, most web hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some of those demand a monthly fee (cPanel asks for $13 USD/month, go to, while others request a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting CP-equipped VPS hosting, it's good to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts provided by us include the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is available at no extra license cost, hence the monthly cost of the virtual server package picked by the user does not change. Besides, Hepsia perhaps sports the finest Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Accounts

The website hosting CP tool enables users to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email mailbox accounts, to monitor web traffic and load logs and to have a glimpse at comprehensive stats about the utilized and the free system resources. Like the virtualization panels, the hosting CPs are intended to work under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most famous CPs, works solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is created by the very same firm, works only under Windows. Other website hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some web hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of functions controlling the levels below, so it is simple to create a reseller web hosting website and start making money by offering web hosting plans to other persons. As clients will watch what amount of the resources is consumed, but will not be able to view the actual figures, even a small-size private virtual server hosting plan will suffice to launch a small shared web hosting web hosting corporation and collect money.

The VPS Hosting: an Independent, Reasonably Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a very popular online store or a big company web page. As its administration is easy, it is the favored selection of both rookies and qualified clients.
