VPS Server

To answer the demand for economical, but reliable hosting solutions, companies presented an intermediate website hosting platform - the VPS server. This is a virtual emulation of a web hosting server that performs precisely like a dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared webspace hosting package. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are set up on the same physical web hosting server and each person pays for their account, the price for a virtual hosting server plan is much lower than the price for a dedicated hosting server. A small-scale Virtual Private Server plan is a little more expensive than a hi-end shared hosting account, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared web hosting account.

Private Virtual Server Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each given account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the hosting server, so each VPS server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the other ones. The VPS web servers are managed through a virtualization console where clients can keep track of all running processes and stop or restart them, update server-side applications, take a glimpse at the used up and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of examples of virtualization platforms used for setting up and managing virtual server web hosting accounts. They have different requirements with regard to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For example, Virtuozzo can run on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be activated on the actual private virtual web hosting servers.

Managed Virtual Hosting Server Solutions

The virtualization platform lends the user the power to administer the VPS hosting server independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you’d have waited for their customer support team to reboot a service or retrieve a backup. If the customer is not competent enough, though, a couple of top hosting providers such as 'ResellersPanel.com' have an optional upgrade that includes OS and software installation and update procedures, private virtual web hosting server backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. The astonishing feature with 'ResellersPanel.com' is that there are a couple of VPS hosting server data center facility locations to select from: North America, the United Kingdom and Australia.

CPs for Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

The domain name and the web content on the private virtual web hosting server are managed via a site hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a standard shared web page hosting account’s. The contrast is that with shared hosting accounts, customers receive one specific web page hosting Control Panel, while with a private virtual web server plan, hosting providers normally provide a number of webspace hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more proficient customers can install and utilize the web page hosting CP they want. Certain virtualization systems support installing a website hosting CP through them to render it easier for the customer. Unfortunately, most CPs are not free of cost. Some demand a monthly tax (cPanel wants $13 USD/month, have a look at BuycPanel.com), while others require a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other CPs that restrict the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about web page hosting Control Panel-supplied private virtual servers, it's worth stating that, by default, all VPS web hosting server packages provided by 'ResellersPanel.com' ship with the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is available at no extra licence cost, therefore the monthly price of the VPS hosting server package chosen by the customer does not fluctuate. What’s more, Hepsia perhaps sports the greatest Domain Manager on the web page hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Web Server Hosting Accounts

The web page hosting CP interface allows users to manage domains, files, databases, FTP and email accounts, to observe traffic and load logs and to view comprehensive statistics regarding the used up and the free resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the web space hosting CPs are constructed to operate under a specific Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widespread hosting Control Panels, runs only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same corporation, works only under Windows. Other web page hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are multi-platform. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given web hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of functionalities governing the levels below, so it is easy to create a hosting reseller website and start making money by selling webite hosting services to other individuals. As clients will watch what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not be aware of the real numbers, even a small-size virtual hosting server package will suffice to set up a small-sized site hosting firm and obtain money.

The Private Virtual Server: an Independent, Cut-Price Solution

A VPS web hosting server is a comparatively cheap web hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a very famous online store or a large company site. As its management is easy, it is the favored choice of both newcomers and advanced users.
