Explanation of VPS

To meet the demand for budget, but reliable hosting solutions, companies launched an intermediate web hosting platform - the VPS. This is a virtual emulation of a web hosting server that performs exactly like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared hosting solution. At the same time, as lots of accounts are set up on the same physical web hosting server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS plan is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end VPS account is a bit more expensive than the most powerful shared web hosting plan, but its resources exceed by far those of the shared web hosting plan.

Each single account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be restarted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization console where users can take a glimpse at all running processes and stop or restart them, update server-side software, take a glimpse at the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just several instances of software applications used for setting up and managing virtual server hosting plans. They have various requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can operate on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual servers.

Managed VPS Solutions

The virtualization panel offers the client the freedom to administer the VPS independently from the provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support team to reboot a specific service or restore a backup. If the user is not tech-savvy, however, we offer an optional upgrade that encompasses OS and software installation and update operations, VPS backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of virtual hosting server datacenter locations to select from: the United States, Britain and Australia.

Hosting CPs for VPS

The domains and the web content on the virtual hosting server are managed through a web hosting CP tool, similar to a normal shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with web hosting accounts, clients receive one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS account, web hosting providers normally present a couple of Control Panels to select from, and the more competent customers can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they wish. Certain virtualization consoles support installing a web hosting CP through them to make it simpler for the user. Unluckily, most website hosting CPs are not free of charge. Some of those require a monthly tax (cPanel charges $13 USD/month, take a gaze at BuycPanel.com), while others request a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting CP-supplied VPS, it's worthwhile to state that, by default, all VPS plans distributed by us come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is offered at no extra license charge, thus the monthly price of the private virtual server web hosting plan picked by the client does not change. Besides, Hepsia perhaps sports the best Domain Manager on the web hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Plans

The hosting Control Panel tool allows clients to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and email accounts, to view web traffic and load logs and to keep track of elaborate stats about the utilized and the remaining resources. Like the virtualization panels, the Control Panels are devised to function under a given Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widespread website hosting CPs, functions only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is fabricated by the very same corporation, performs only under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of specifications governing the levels below, so it is easy to set up a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by offering web hosting accounts to other individuals. As clients will be informed about what amount of the resources is used up, but will not know the actual figures, even a small-size VPS web hosting account will suffice to set up a small-sized shared web hosting web hosting corporation and make cash.

The VPS: an Independent, Inexpensive Solution

A VPS is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a very popular web store or a big corporate portal. As its management is simple, it is the preferred pick of both rookies and advanced users.
