To answer the need for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting services, vendors introduced a midway website hosting platform - the VPS web hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web server that operates exactly like a : dedicated web server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting plan. On the other hand, as a lot of accounts are created on the same physical server and each user pays for their account, the price for a VPS web hosting account is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server.

Each specific account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the hosting 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 via a virtualization panel where clients can watch all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software applications, view the utilized and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few instances of virtualization systems utilized for creating and handling private virtual server hosting accounts. They involve diverse requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be activated on the actual VPS hosting servers.

The virtualization panel gives the user the freedom to administer the VPS web hosting autonomously from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to reboot a given service or recover a backup. If the customer is not tech-savvy, however, we include a voluntary upgrade that involves OS and software application installation and update operations, VPS web hosting backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a bunch of Virtual Private Server server farm facility locations to choose from: North America, Britain and Australia.

CPs for VPS Web Hosting

The domains and the web content on the virtual web hosting server are manipulated through a website hosting Control Panel GUI, similar to a conventional shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with web hosting accounts, users obtain one specific hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS web hosting package, hosting providers commonly provide a bunch of web hosting CPs to select from, and the more practiced clients can install and avail of the Control Panel they desire. Some virtualization platforms support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to make things simpler for the customer. Unluckily, the majority of the hosting Control Panels are not free. Some of those demand a monthly tax (cPanel requests $13 USD/month, take a peek at, while others demand a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS web hosting, it's good to mention that, by default, all VPS web hosting packages offered by us are stocked with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no extra licence charge, so the monthly price of the virtual web server account selected by the customer does not alter. Moreover, Hepsia probably has the best Domain Manager on the hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Web Hosting Plans

The web hosting CP interface permits customers to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email address accounts, to monitor bandwidth and load logs and to take a glimpse at comprehensive stats concerning the consumed and the free resources. Like the virtualization panels, the website hosting Control Panels are developed to function under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous web hosting Control Panels, works only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same firm, functions solely under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given web hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve several control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of functionalities controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to launch a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by offering web hosting packages to other persons. As clients will know what percentage of the resources is utilized, but will not know the actual numbers, even a low-end VPS server hosting plan will be enough to set up a small-size shared website hosting web hosting enterprise and earn cash.
