To meet the demand for economical, but reliable hosting services, distributors presented a transitional website hosting environment - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual emulation of a server that behaves just like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more powerful than any shared website hosting account. On the other hand, as multiple accounts are set up on the same physical server and each customer pays for their account, the price for a virtual private servers plan is markedly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale virtual private servers package is slightly more high-priced than a hi-end shared website hosting plan, but its resources exceed by far those of the shared website hosting plan.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual account is isolated from all other accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted independently from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed through a virtualization panel where users can keep track of all running tasks and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software, have a look at the consumed and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just several instances of software platforms utilized for creating and handling VPS web hosting accounts. They involve diverse requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can work on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete VPS web servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Services

The virtualization system lends the user the freedom to administer the virtual private servers independently from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support staff to restart a given service or recover a backup. If the user is not skilled enough, though, we include an optional upgrade that encompasses OS and software application installation and update operations, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a couple of VPS server data center locations to select from: the United States, Britain and Australia.

Web Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the web content on the virtual private hosting server are dealt with through a web hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a classic shared web hosting plan's. The contrast is that with website hosting accounts, customers receive one specific CP, while with a virtual private servers account, providers commonly present a bunch of web hosting CPs to select from, and the more skillful users can install and utilize the website hosting Control Panel they wish. Some virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting CP through them to make things easier for the customer. Sadly, the majority of the web hosting Control Panels are not free of charge. Some of them ask for a monthly tax (cPanel requires $13/month, have a look at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-supplied virtual private servers, it's worth stating that, by default, all virtual private servers packages supplied by us include the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia comes at no extra licence charge, therefore the monthly cost of the virtual web hosting server package selected by the user does not fluctuate. What's more, Hepsia probably offers the finest Domain Manager on the website hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based Virtual Private Servers Accounts

The website hosting Control Panel user interface enables customers to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and mailbox accounts, to view web traffic and load logs and to monitor elaborate statistics concerning the used up and the remaining resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are built to function under a given OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most well known website hosting Control Panels, works only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is devised by the very same corporation, operates only 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 web hosting CPs over others is that they involve different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a separate set of features governing the levels beneath, so it is simple to establish a reseller web hosting website and start making money by offering web hosting services to other people. As customers will view what percentage of the system resources is used up, but will not be aware of the real figures, even a low-end VPS hosting package will suffice to set up a small-size shared website hosting website hosting corporation and obtain capital.

The Virtual Private Servers: an Autonomous, Moderately Priced Solution

A virtual private servers is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a highly visited online store or a big corporate web page. As its management is simple, it is the favored selection of both inexperienced clients and accomplished customers.
