Description of VPSs


To satisfy the demand for modestly priced, but reliable hosting solutions, providers launched an intermediate web hosting environment - the VPS. This is a virtual imitation of a hosting server that acts quite like a : dedicated web server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting package. At the same time, as a lot of accounts are set up on the very same physical server and each user pays for their account, the cost of a VPS solution is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS package is a little more expensive than the most powerful shared website hosting plan, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared website hosting account.

Each specific account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where customers can view all running tasks and abort or restart them, update server-side software applications, have a glimpse at the consumed and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few instances of software platforms utilized for creating and handling virtual server web hosting accounts. They involve diverse requirements in relation to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, Virtuozzo can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual VPS web servers.

Managed VPS Solutions

The virtualization platform lends the customer the freedom to administer the VPS autonomously from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to restart a particular service or restore a backup. If the client is not tech-savvy, however, we offer a voluntary upgrade that comprises OS and software installation and update procedures, VPS backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have several VPS datacenter facility locations to pick from: the USA, the UK and Australia.

CPs for VPS

The domain names and the content on the VPS web server are manipulated via a web hosting CP GUI, similar to a regular shared web hosting account's. The distinction is that with web hosting plans, customers receive one concrete hosting CP, while with a VPS plan, hosting providers traditionally present a couple of web hosting Control Panels to select from, and the more expert clients can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they want. Certain virtualization panels support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to make it simpler for the client. Unfortunately, the majority of the web hosting CPs are paid. Some of those demand a monthly fee (cPanel wants $13 USD/month, have a glance at BuycPanel.com), while others require a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss CP-supplied VPS, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all VPS packages supplied by us are stocked with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain quotas. Hepsia comes at no additional licence cost, thus the monthly price of the Virtual Private Server package selected by the customer does not fluctuate. What's more, Hepsia probably includes the finest Domain Manager on the hosting CP market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Accounts

The web hosting Control Panel tool permits clients to handle domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail accounts, to monitor web traffic and load logs and to have a look at comprehensive stats about the utilized and the left resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the hosting CPs are constructed to work under a specific Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous website hosting CPs, works solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same corporation, functions solely under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some website hosting Control Panels over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of functions governing the levels beneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting plans to other persons. As clients will see what amount of the resources is consumed, but will not see the actual figures, even a small-size VPS hosting account will suffice to run a small-sized shared website hosting web hosting firm and gain cash.

The VPS: an Independent, Low-Priced Solution

A VPS is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support websites such as a highly visited web store or a large company portal. As its administration is simple, it is the favored choice of both inexperienced customers and knowledgeable customers.
