To satisfy the demand for modestly priced, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors launched a transitional website hosting platform - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual imitation of a server that acts precisely like a : dedicated web server and is much more advanced than any shared website hosting solution. On the other hand, as plenty of accounts are created on the very same physical machine and each user pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers account is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic virtual private servers package is slightly more high-priced than a hi-end shared web hosting account, but its system resources excel by far those of the shared web hosting package.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be rebooted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization console where users can take a look at all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side software, take a glimpse at the consumed and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of instances of virtualization systems used for setting up and handling Virtual Private Server hosting packages. They have various requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For instance, KVM can operate on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete VPS servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Services

The virtualization platform offers the user the power to manage the virtual private servers independently from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their support team to restart a specific service or retrieve a backup. If the user is not proficient, however, we have an optional upgrade that involves OS and software application installation and update operations, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a couple of private virtual web server data center locations to select from: the USA, Great Britain and Australia.

Website Hosting CPs for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the web content on the Virtual Private Server are managed through a hosting Control Panel tool, similar to a standard shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with web hosting packages, clients get one specific website hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers package, providers normally provide a couple of website hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more advanced users can install and utilize the Control Panel they wish. Some virtualization systems support installing a hosting Control Panel through them to make it easier for the user. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting CPs are not charge-free. Some of those require a monthly fee (cPanel demands $13 USD/month, take a glance at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web hosting Control Panel-supplied virtual private servers, it's worth mentioning that, by default, all virtual private servers plans offered by us are provided with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It includes unmetered hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is attainable at no further license charge, thus the monthly cost of the virtual private web hosting server plan selected by the user does not change. Furthermore, Hepsia perhaps has the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven Virtual Private Servers Packages

The web hosting Control Panel interface enables users to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email mailbox accounts, to view web traffic and load logs and to watch elaborate stats concerning the consumed and the available resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the hosting CPs are devised to work under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web hosting Control Panels, functions only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is fabricated by the same corporation, works exclusively under Windows. Other web hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain Control Panels over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of specs controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to set up a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by selling web hosting solutions to other individuals. As clients will be informed about what amount of the resources is used up, but will not be able to view the real numbers, even a small-size VPS web hosting server account will suffice to establish a small shared website hosting web hosting enterprise and earn money.

The Virtual Private Servers: an Independent, Low-Cost Solution

A virtual private servers is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a very popular online store or a huge corporate web page. As its management is easy, it is the preferred choice of both rookies and advanced customers.
