Virtual Private Servers Hosting Definition

To satisfy the demand for moderately priced, but reliable hosting services, suppliers started a midway website hosting platform - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual emulation of a web server that behaves just like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared hosting plan. At the same time, as multiple accounts are set up on the very same physical hosting server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers package is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic virtual private servers package is slightly more high-priced than a hi-end shared website hosting account, but its system resources exceed decidedly those of the shared plan.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be restarted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are administered through a virtualization panel where customers can see all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software, take a glimpse at the consumed and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of examples of virtualization platforms used for creating and handling VPS web server plans. They involve various requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For example, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the actual virtual hosting servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Solutions

The virtualization console lends the user the power to administer the virtual private servers independently from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their technical support staff to reboot a specific service or restore a backup. If the customer is not proficient, however, we offer a voluntary upgrade that encompasses Operating System and software application installation and update procedures, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a handful of virtual web server datacenter facility locations to pick from: America, England and Australia.

Web Hosting CPs for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual web server are manipulated via a web hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting plan's. The difference is that with website hosting packages, clients get one concrete web hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers account, providers commonly offer a number of web hosting CPs to choose from, and the more experienced users can install and utilize the hosting CP they like. Certain virtualization systems support installing a hosting Control Panel through them to render it easier for the customer. Unluckily, most web hosting Control Panels are not charge-free. Some demand a monthly fee (cPanel asks for thirteen dollars/month, take a look at, while others require a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss web hosting CP-supplied virtual private servers, it's worth stating that, by default, all virtual private servers plans offered by us are furnished with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no additional license cost, so the monthly price of the virtual web server hosting plan selected by the user does not fluctuate. Furthermore, Hepsia perhaps sports the finest Domain Manager on the hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based Virtual Private Servers Accounts

The web hosting Control Panel interface permits clients to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and email accounts, to keep track of traffic and load logs and to take a look at comprehensive statistics regarding the consumed and the remaining system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the website hosting CPs are built to run under a particular OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most popular CPs, performs solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is created by the same designer, works exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given hosting Control Panels over others is that they have several control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of specs governing the levels beneath, so it is easy to launch a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting solutions to other persons. As clients will see what amount of the system resources is utilized, but will not be aware of the actual figures, even a low-end virtual private web server plan will be enough to run a small-size shared web hosting website hosting corporation and make capital.

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

A virtual private servers is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support sites such as a very famous online store or a big corporate web site. As its management is simple, it is the preferred selection of both inexperienced customers and skilled clients.
