To meet the demand for inexpensive, but reliable hosting solutions, suppliers launched a transitional web hosting platform - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that operates precisely like a : dedicated server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting package. On the other hand, as numerous accounts are created on the same physical hosting server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers solution is markedly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale virtual private servers package is a bit more expensive than the most feature-rich shared web hosting package, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared web hosting account.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each specific account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be rebooted independently from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization console where users can take a glimpse at all running tasks and stop or restart them, update server-side applications, view the consumed and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several instances of virtualization systems utilized for setting up and handling virtual private web server hosting plans. They involve different requirements concerning the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete Virtual Private Servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Services

The virtualization system gives the user the power to administer the virtual private servers independently from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support staff to reboot a service or retrieve a backup. If the user is not proficient, though, we offer an optional upgrade that comprises OS and software installation and update operations, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of virtual server datacenter facility locations to pick from: North America, Britain and Australia.

Website hosting CPs for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the web content on the VPS web server are administered via a hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with website hosting plans, customers receive one specific web hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers account, providers usually offer a bunch of website hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more trained clients can install and use the hosting Control Panel they wish. Some virtualization platforms support installing a hosting CP through them to make it easier for the client. Sadly, most website hosting Control Panels are not free. Some of these demand a monthly tax (cPanel requests thirteen dollars/month, take a peek at, while others ask for a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting CP-supplied virtual private servers, it's worth pointing out that, by default, all virtual private servers plans furnished by us comprise the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no additional licence charge, thus the monthly price of the virtual private web server hosting plan picked by the client does not alter. Besides, Hepsia perhaps includes the greatest Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based Virtual Private Servers Plans

The web hosting Control Panel user interface enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and mail address accounts, to see web traffic and load logs and to have a look at comprehensive stats regarding the utilized and the available resources. Comparable with the virtualization panels, the website hosting Control Panels are created to function under a certain OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most popular website hosting CPs, works exclusively under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is invented by the very same firm, performs only under Windows. Other web hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain CPs over others is that they have different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a separate set of specs controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to launch a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by reselling web hosting services to other persons. As customers will know what percentage of the resources is utilized, but will not be aware of the real figures, even a small Virtual Private Server web hosting plan will be enough to open a small-size shared website hosting website hosting enterprise and collect money.

The Virtual Private Servers: an Independent, Inexpensive Solution
