Description of VPS Hosting Services

To fulfill the demand for budget, but reliable hosting solutions, providers started a midway web hosting platform - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that behaves exactly like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared web hosting plan. On the other hand, as lots of accounts are hosted on the same physical web hosting server and each customer pays for their account, the price for a VPS hosting package is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS hosting package is a little more expensive than the most feature-rich shared hosting plan, but its resources exceed decidedly those of the shared hosting package.

Each individual account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be rebooted autonomously from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where customers can take a glimpse at all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side software applications, have a glimpse at the consumed and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several instances of virtualization consoles used for creating and administering private virtual hosting server packages. They have various requirements about the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can perform on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be installed on the actual virtual hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Solutions

The virtualization platform gives the user the freedom to manage the VPS hosting independently from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support team to reboot a service or retrieve a backup. If the user is not competent enough, though, we offer a voluntary upgrade that incorporates OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a number of virtual web server data center locations to choose from: the US, Britain and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the content on the VPS web server are handled via a hosting Control Panel tool, similar to a classic shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with website hosting accounts, customers obtain one concrete hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting package, hosting providers typically provide a number of web hosting CPs to pick from, and the more skilled clients can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they desire. Certain virtualization panels support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to make things simpler for the user. Sadly, most website hosting CPs are not charge-free. Some of those demand a monthly tax (cPanel wants $13/month, have a look at BuycPanel.com), while others demand a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other CPs that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we address Control Panel-equipped VPS hosting, it's worth pointing out that, by default, all VPS hosting packages distributed by us arrive with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is offered at no further licence charge, so the monthly price of the virtual web hosting server plan chosen by the client does not change. In addition, Hepsia perhaps includes the finest Domain Manager on the CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Plans

The web hosting Control Panel GUI permits customers to handle domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail box accounts, to keep track of bandwidth and load logs and to take a look at exhaustive stats about the utilized and the left system resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are devised to perform under a certain OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the best known Control Panels, works only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is built by the same company, performs exclusively under Windows. Other CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some website hosting CPs over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a separate set of functions controlling the levels below, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting accounts to other individuals. As customers will see what amount of the resources is used up, but will not observe the real figures, even a small VPS web server package will be enough to set up a small shared web hosting website hosting corporation and earn money.

The VPS Hosting: an Autonomous, Affordable Solution

A VPS hosting is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web sites such as a highly visited online store or a huge corporate site. As its administration is easy, it is the favored selection of both inexperienced clients and trained customers.
