To satisfy the need for economical, but reliable hosting solutions, providers initiated an intermediate web hosting environment - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual emulation of a web hosting server that behaves exactly like a : dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting account. On the other hand, as lots of accounts are hosted on the same physical machine and each person pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers plan is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end virtual private servers plan is a little more expensive than the most powerful shared website hosting package, but its resources excel decidedly those of the shared web hosting plan.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each given account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization panel where users can keep track of all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side applications, take a glimpse at the used up and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of instances of software programs used for setting up and managing virtual server web hosting accounts. They involve various requirements about the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete virtual web servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Solutions

The virtualization system offers the customer the freedom to administer the virtual private servers autonomously from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support staff to reboot a service or restore a backup. If the user is not proficient, though, we include a voluntary upgrade that contains Operating System and software installation and update operations, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several virtual web server data center facility locations to select from: the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Hosting CPs for Virtual Private Servers

The domains and the content on the VPS web server are manipulated via a website hosting CP tool, similar to a traditional shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with website hosting plans, clients obtain one particular website hosting CP, while with a virtual private servers account, hosting providers normally provide a handful of web hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more tech-savvy customers can install and utilize the web hosting CP they want. Some virtualization platforms support installing a website hosting CP through them to make things easier for the user. Sadly, the majority of the hosting Control Panels are not free of charge. Some of them demand a monthly tax (cPanel demands thirteen dollars/month, check BuycPanel.com), while others request a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we address website hosting Control Panel-equipped virtual private servers, it's worth stating that, by default, all virtual private servers plans distributed by us comprise the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no further licence charge, therefore the monthly cost of the VPS hosting package chosen by the client does not alter. What's more, Hepsia probably has the greatest Domain Manager on the CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based Virtual Private Servers Accounts

The Control Panel GUI allows customers to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and mailbox accounts, to observe traffic and load logs and to view elaborate stats concerning the utilized and the free resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the hosting CPs are developed to function under a specific Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known website hosting Control Panels, functions exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is created by the same corporation, works solely under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of functions governing the levels underneath, so it is easy to launch a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by selling web hosting services to other people. As clients will know what percentage of the resources is consumed, but will not be able to see the real numbers, even a low-end virtual server web hosting plan will suffice to launch a small shared web hosting website hosting firm and receive cash.

The Virtual Private Servers: an Autonomous, Cut-Rate Solution

A virtual private servers is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a highly visited web store or a huge corporate site. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred selection of both inexperienced clients and skilled customers.
