To meet the need for affordably priced, but reliable hosting solutions, companies presented a transitional website hosting environment - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual emulation of a web hosting server that operates precisely like a : dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting account. On the other hand, as multiple accounts are set up on the same physical machine and each person pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers package is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A low-end virtual private servers package is a little more expensive than the most advanced shared website hosting package, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared website hosting plan.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is insulated from all other accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where customers can take a look at all running processes and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software applications, have a look at the consumed and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of instances of software applications utilized for setting up and administering private virtual server hosting packages. They have various requirements about the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For example, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete VPS web hosting servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Services

The virtualization system gives the user the freedom to administer the virtual private servers autonomously from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their technical support staff to reboot a given service or recover a backup. If the customer is not competent enough, though, we have an optional upgrade that comprises OS and software application installation and update operations, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a handful of private virtual web hosting server server farm locations to choose from: America, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for Virtual Private Servers

The domains and the content on the VPS web hosting server are administered via a web hosting CP tool, similar to a normal shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with website hosting packages, clients receive one specific web hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers account, providers typically provide a handful of web hosting CPs to pick from, and the more proficient users can install and avail of the Control Panel they desire. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting CP through them to make things simpler for the client. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not free. Some demand a monthly tax (cPanel wants 13 dollars/month, check out BuycPanel.com), while others demand a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss web hosting CP-equipped virtual private servers, it's useful to state that, by default, all virtual private servers accounts supplied by us offer the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is obtainable at no extra licence cost, therefore the monthly price of the VPS web hosting server account selected by the user does not alter. Moreover, Hepsia probably sports the best Domain Manager on the web hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven Virtual Private Servers Accounts

The website hosting CP tool allows customers to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email mailbox accounts, to observe web traffic and load logs and to keep track of comprehensive statistics concerning the utilized and the free system resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the website hosting CPs are designed to run under a given Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known Control Panels, runs solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is developed by the very same corporation, functions only under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some web hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of features controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by reselling web hosting plans to other people. As customers will monitor what amount of the system resources is utilized, but will not know the real numbers, even a low-end virtual web server hosting account will be enough to open a small-sized shared website hosting website hosting enterprise and receive money.

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

A virtual private servers is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a very famous web store or a huge company portal. As its management is simple, it is the preferred pick of both novices and skilled clients.
