To satisfy the need for low cost, but reliable hosting solutions, suppliers introduced a transitional web hosting solution - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual imitation of a web server that acts quite like a : dedicated web server and is much more powerful than any shared hosting plan. On the other hand, as many accounts are hosted on the same physical web server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers account is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A low-end virtual private servers plan is a bit more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared web hosting account, but its resources excel decidedly those of the shared website hosting plan.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each single account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization panel where clients can keep track of all running tasks and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, take a glimpse at the utilized and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few examples of virtualization systems used for creating and handling virtual server packages. They have different requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For example, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete private virtual servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Solutions

The virtualization system lends the customer the freedom to administer the virtual private servers autonomously from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to reboot a given service or restore a backup. If the client is not proficient, though, we offer an optional upgrade that encompasses Operating System and software installation and update operations, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a number of virtual web server datacenter facility locations to pick from: North America, the United Kingdom and Australia.

CPs for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the content on the VPS server are manipulated through a website hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a common shared web hosting plan's. The contrast is that with website hosting plans, customers receive one particular website hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers plan, hosting providers usually offer several website hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more competent clients can install and avail of the website hosting CP they like. Certain virtualization platforms support installing a website hosting CP through them to make it easier for the user. Unfortunately, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some of these require a monthly fee (cPanel requires 13 USD/month, take a glance at BuycPanel.com), while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about website hosting Control Panel-supplied virtual private servers, it's good to state that, by default, all virtual private servers plans delivered by us comprise the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is available at no extra license charge, hence the monthly cost of the private virtual hosting server package chosen by the user does not fluctuate. Last, but not least, Hepsia perhaps includes the finest Domain Manager on the Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered Virtual Private Servers Plans

The hosting CP tool enables customers to handle domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mailbox accounts, to observe traffic and load logs and to keep track of exhaustive stats concerning the utilized and the left system resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the website hosting Control Panels are created to run under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used website hosting Control Panels, works solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is created by the very same company, works exclusively under Windows. Other website hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some CPs over others is that they include different levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of functions governing the levels underneath, so it is easy to create a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting solutions to other individuals. As customers will observe what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not know the actual figures, even a small virtual web server account will suffice to open a small shared web hosting website hosting company and obtain money.

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

A virtual private servers is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web portals such as a highly visited web store or a huge company web page. As its management is simple, it is the favored pick of both newcomers and practiced users.
