A description of a virtual private server (vps)

To satisfy the need for affordably priced, but reliable hosting services, companies launched a midway webspace hosting platform - the private virtual server. This is a virtual simulation of a server that works precisely like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared web site hosting package. At the same time, as lots of accounts are created on the same physical hosting server and each client pays for their account, the cost of a private virtual server hosting solution is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A low-end private virtual hosting server package is a bit more high-priced than a hi-end shared web space hosting package, but its resources excel decidedly those of the shared hosting package.

Private Virtual Web Server Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each particular account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be restarted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Private Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where customers can view all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side applications, take a glimpse at the utilized and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several instances of virtualization consoles used for creating and managing virtual server web hosting accounts. They involve various requirements concerning the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, etc. For instance, Virtuozzo can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete VPS web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Server Hosting Solutions

The virtualization platform lends the client the freedom to manage the virtual private server independently from the provider, sparing you the time you’d have waited for their technical support team to reboot a given service or restore a backup. If the client is not competent enough, however, a bunch of top hosting vendors like WebHost-ing.com offer a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update procedures, private virtual server backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. The astonishing issue with 'WebHost-ing.com' is that there are a number of virtual private hosting server server farm locations to select from: America, Great Britain and Australia.

Web Page Hosting CPs for Virtual Servers

The domain names and the content on the virtual hosting server are managed through a hosting Control Panel interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting account’s. The contrast is that with web page hosting accounts, users get one specific web site hosting CP, while with a private virtual web server plan, providers commonly present a bunch of web space hosting CPs to select from, and the more competent users can install and use the webspace hosting CP they wish. Certain virtualization panels support installing a web hosting Control Panel through them to render things easier for the user. Sadly, most hosting CPs are not free of charge. Some of those demand a monthly fee (cPanel asks for thirteen dollars/month, go to BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS web servers, it's worthwhile to state that, by default, all private virtual server accounts offered by 'WebHost-ing.com' offer the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is attainable at no extra license charge, therefore the monthly cost of the virtual server web hosting package selected by the client does not alter. Besides, Hepsia probably sports the finest Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based VPS Hosting Plans

The web page hosting CP GUI allows clients to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and email box accounts, to observe web traffic and load logs and to watch comprehensive statistics regarding the used up and the left resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the webspace hosting Control Panels are devised to operate under a specific Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most well known site hosting Control Panels, operates only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is conceived by the very same company, performs only under Windows. Other hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some site hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a separate set of functionalities governing the levels below, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting accounts to other persons. As clients will view what amount of the system resources is used up, but will not be able to see the real numbers, even a low-end private virtual web hosting server package will be enough to start a small-size shared web site hosting web page hosting company and earn capital.

The Virtual Private Server: an Independent, Inexpensively Priced Solution

A virtual server is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support web sites such as a busy web store or a big corporate website. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred choice of both tenderfeet and trained users.
