Virtual Private Server

To satisfy the demand for cut-price, but reliable hosting services, suppliers commenced a transitional website hosting solution - the VPS hosting server. This is a virtual simulation of a server that works exactly like a dedicated server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting package. At the same time, as multiple accounts are created on the same physical server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a virtual server hosting account is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated hosting server. A basic Virtual Private Server account is a bit more expensive than the most feature-rich shared hosting plan, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared web site hosting package.

Virtual Hosting Server Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each separate account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the web server, so each virtual web hosting server can run a separate OS and be rebooted autonomously from the remaining ones. The private virtual servers are administered through a virtualization panel where users can observe all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software applications, observe the utilized and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few instances of virtualization platforms used for setting up and administering VPS server accounts. They involve various requirements with respect to the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, Virtuozzo 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 Operating Systems to be installed on the actual VPSs.

Managed VPS Server Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization panel offers the user the power to administer the virtual web server independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you’d have waited for their client support team to restart a given service or recover a backup. If the user is not experienced, though, a couple of top hosting distributors such as 'ResellersPanel.com' offer an optional upgrade that incorporates Operating System and software installation and update procedures, virtual web hosting server backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. The impressive feature with 'ResellersPanel' is that there are a handful of VPS server data center facility locations to choose from: the United States, Britain and Australia.

Web Page Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the content on the Virtual Private Server are administered via a web hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a traditional shared web site hosting account’s. The contrast is that with shared hosting plans, customers receive one particular hosting CP, while with a virtual private hosting server account, providers traditionally offer a couple of web space hosting CPs to choose from, and the more advanced users can install and make use of the web hosting CP they like. Some virtualization panels support installing a hosting Control Panel through them to make it easier for the client. Sadly, most Control Panels are not free of charge. Some require a monthly fee (cPanel asks for 13 USD/month, take a gaze at BuycPanel.com), while others require a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web page hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss web page hosting Control Panel-supplied Virtual Private Servers, it's useful to point out that, by default, all virtual private web hosting server plans delivered by 'ResellersPanel.com' come with the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no additional license charge, hence the monthly cost of the virtual private web server account chosen by the client does not fluctuate. Moreover, Hepsia probably includes the greatest Domain Manager on the CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Server Web Hosting Accounts

The web page hosting CP interface permits customers to manage domain names, files, databases, FTP and e-mail box accounts, to monitor bandwidth and load logs and to take a glimpse at comprehensive statistics concerning the consumed and the free system resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the web page hosting CPs are designed to work under a specific OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known webspace hosting CPs, runs only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is made by the same firm, runs only under Windows. Other web site hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of specs controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to set up a reseller hosting website and start making money by offering hosting solutions to other people. As clients will keep track of what amount of the system resources is utilized, but will not know the real numbers, even a small-size VPS hosting account will be enough to set up a small-size web site hosting firm and gain cash.

The Private Virtual Server: an Independent, Inexpensively Priced Solution

A VPS is a relatively cheap web hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web pages such as a highly visited web store or a big company web page. As its management is simple, it is the preferred choice of both beginners and skilled users.
