What Exactly is virtual private servers hosting?

To fulfill the need for economical, but reliable hosting solutions, suppliers commenced an intermediate website hosting environment - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual emulation of a hosting server that works quite like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting account. On the other hand, as a number of accounts are set up on the same physical web server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers package is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end virtual private servers account is a little more expensive than the most advanced shared web hosting account, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared web hosting plan.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and KVM

Each given account is insulated from all other accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be restarted autonomously from the other ones. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization console where users can take a glimpse at all running tasks and abort or restart them, update server-side software applications, have a look at the utilized and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a couple of examples of software systems used for setting up and administering virtual web server accounts. They involve different requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual virtual private web servers.

The virtualization platform gives the user the freedom to administer the virtual private servers independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to reboot a particular service or restore a backup.

We also have a bunch of virtual private web server datacenter facility locations to pick from: the USA, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Private Servers

The domains and the content on the virtual server are handled through a web hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a classic shared web hosting account's. The contrast is that with website hosting accounts, users get one particular web hosting CP, while with a virtual private servers plan, web hosting providers traditionally present a handful of website hosting Control Panels to pick from, and the more proficient customers can install and utilize the web hosting Control Panel they like. Certain virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to make it easier for the client. Unfortunately, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not free of cost. Some of these ask for a monthly fee (cPanel demands $13 USD/month, take a look at, while others request a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of website hosting Control Panel-supplied virtual private servers, it's useful to state that, by default, all virtual private servers packages provided by us contain the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is offered at no extra licence cost, therefore the monthly cost of the virtual private hosting server account chosen by the user does not change. Furthermore, Hepsia probably includes the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered Virtual Private Servers Packages

The web hosting Control Panel user interface allows customers to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and electronic mail accounts, to keep track of web traffic and load logs and to view exhaustive stats about the used up and the available resources. Comparable with the virtualization panels, the website hosting CPs are designed to work under a given OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most famous web hosting Control Panels, operates only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is devised by the same company, operates exclusively under Windows. Other hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given web hosting CPs over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of functions governing the levels beneath, so it is simple to set up a reseller web hosting website and start making money by selling web hosting services to other people. As clients will be informed about what amount of the resources is utilized, but will not know the real figures, even a small VPS server hosting account will be enough to launch a small-size shared web hosting website hosting enterprise and collect capital.
