Description of VPS Hosting Services

To fulfill the demand for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting services, vendors launched an intermediate website hosting solution - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that works precisely like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting plan. At the same time, as multiple accounts are set up on the very same physical server and each individual pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting package is much lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting account is slightly more high-priced than the most powerful shared website hosting package, but its resources exceed decidedly those of the shared website hosting account.

Each single account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where customers can keep track of all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, keep an eye on the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only several examples of software systems used for creating and handling private virtual server hosting packages. They have diverse requirements concerning the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the actual virtual web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization system lends the customer the freedom to manage the VPS hosting independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support staff to reboot a given service or recover a backup. If the user is not experienced, though, we include an optional upgrade that involves OS and software application installation and update operations, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have several virtual hosting server server farm facility locations to choose from: America, England and Australia.

Website Hosting CPs for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual web server are managed via a web hosting CP tool, similar to a traditional shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with web hosting packages, clients obtain one specific website hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting package, hosting providers normally present a number of website hosting Control Panels to choose from, and the more expert clients can install and avail of the web hosting Control Panel they like. Some virtualization panels support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to render things easier for the user. Unluckily, the majority of the Control Panels are not charge-free. Some of these demand a monthly tax (cPanel asks for $13 USD/month, go to BuycPanel.com), while others request a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting CP-supplied VPS hosting, it's worth stating that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts supplied by us come with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is offered at no additional license cost, therefore the monthly cost of the private virtual web server hosting plan picked by the customer does not fluctuate. Besides, Hepsia perhaps has the finest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting CP interface permits clients to handle domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mailbox accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to see thorough statistics concerning the utilized and the free system resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the web hosting Control Panels are designed to perform under a specific Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous CPs, performs only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is developed by the very same company, operates exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of features controlling the levels below, so it is simple to create a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting services to other persons. As clients will know what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not be able to view the real numbers, even a small VPS server hosting package will suffice to establish a small shared website hosting web hosting company and collect capital.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Cut-Rate Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support online portals such as a busy online store or a huge company portal. As its management is simple, it is the favored selection of both inexperienced users and skillful clients.
