To meet the need for low-priced, but reliable hosting solutions, suppliers introduced an intermediate web hosting platform - the VPS. This is a virtual emulation of a web server that acts exactly like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting account. At the same time, as multiple accounts are created on the same physical hosting server and each person pays for their account, the price for a VPS account is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS plan is slightly more high-priced than a hi-end shared web hosting account, but its system resources exceed by far those of the shared web hosting account.

VPS Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be restarted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization console where users can take a glimpse at all running tasks and abort or reboot them, update server-side software, keep track of the utilized and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several examples of software applications used for setting up and handling VPS server hosting accounts. They have various requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these OSs to be installed on the actual Virtual Private Servers.

Managed VPS Solutions

The virtualization system offers the client the power to manage the VPS autonomously from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their technical support staff to restart a particular service or restore a backup. If the client is not competent enough, though, we include a voluntary upgrade that comprises Operating System and software application installation and update operations, VPS backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of VPS web server data center facility locations to pick from: the US, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for VPS

The domain names and the web content on the virtual server are manipulated via a web hosting CP user interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with website hosting accounts, customers get one specific Control Panel, while with a VPS plan, providers commonly present a couple of CPs to select from, and the more practiced customers can install and avail of the website hosting CP they desire. Certain virtualization panels support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render things simpler for the client. Unfortunately, the majority of the Control Panels are not charge-free. Some of those require a monthly fee (cPanel demands $13/month, have a gaze at BuycPanel.com), while others require a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss web hosting CP-supplied VPS, it's worthwhile to point out that, by default, all VPS accounts offered by us incorporate the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is offered at no extra licence cost, hence the monthly cost of the virtual web server package chosen by the customer does not alter. Moreover, Hepsia probably offers the best Domain Manager on the web hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Accounts

The Control Panel user interface enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mailbox accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to see elaborate statistics about the utilized and the left resources. Like the virtualization panels, the website hosting CPs are developed to function under a certain OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous website hosting CPs, operates solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is developed by the very same company, performs exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given website hosting CPs over others is that they have several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of functions governing the levels below, so it is simple to set up a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting accounts to other individuals. As clients will keep track of what amount of the system resources is consumed, but will not be aware of the real numbers, even a small-size VPS web server plan will be enough to set up a small-sized shared web hosting website hosting enterprise and earn capital.

The VPS: an Independent, Inexpensively Priced Solution

A VPS is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web portals such as a very famous web store or a huge company site. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred selection of both rookies and expert clients.
