To meet the demand for affordable, but reliable hosting services, distributors started a transitional website hosting platform - the VPS hosting. This is a virtual imitation of a web server that performs exactly like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared hosting plan. At the same time, as plenty of accounts are hosted on the same physical web server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a VPS hosting account is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic VPS hosting package is a little more expensive than the most feature-rich shared hosting account, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared web hosting plan.

VPS Hosting Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and KVM

Each individual account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the web hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different Operating System and be restarted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where customers can take a glimpse at all running processes and terminate or reboot them, update server-side software, keep an eye on the utilized and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely several instances of virtualization systems used for creating and administering virtual hosting server packages. They involve diverse requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, KVM can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete virtual private hosting servers.

Managed VPS Hosting Services

The virtualization system offers the customer the power to manage the VPS hosting autonomously from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support staff to restart a specific service or restore a backup. If the user is not competent enough, though, we have an optional upgrade that involves Operating System and software installation and update procedures, VPS hosting backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a handful of virtual private hosting server datacenter locations to pick from: America, England and Australia.

Hosting Control Panels for VPS Hosting

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual hosting server are dealt with through a CP tool, similar to a traditional shared web hosting account's. The difference is that with website hosting plans, users obtain one concrete web hosting CP, while with a VPS hosting package, providers traditionally offer a couple of CPs to select from, and the more knowledgeable users can install and use the hosting CP they wish. Some virtualization consoles support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to render it simpler for the client. Unfortunately, most website hosting Control Panels are not free. Some of those ask for a monthly tax (cPanel charges thirteen dollars/month, go to, while others demand a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we address web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS hosting, it's useful to mention that, by default, all VPS hosting accounts provided by us ship with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia comes at no extra licence cost, hence the monthly price of the private virtual server hosting account picked by the customer does not alter. Furthermore, Hepsia perhaps includes the greatest Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Hosting Packages

The website hosting Control Panel user interface enables clients to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mail address accounts, to see bandwidth and load logs and to see comprehensive statistics concerning the utilized and the left resources. Akin with the virtualization panels, the hosting Control Panels are conceived to operate under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most famous CPs, operates solely under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is devised by the very same firm, works exclusively under Windows. Other hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of certain hosting CPs over others is that they include different levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of specifications governing the levels below, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and start making money by selling web hosting services to other individuals. As clients will be aware of what percentage of the system resources is used up, but will not observe the real figures, even a low-end private virtual hosting server package will be enough to set up a small shared web hosting website hosting company and collect capital.

The VPS Hosting: an Independent, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS hosting is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support online portals such as a very famous online store or a huge corporate website. As its administration is easy, it is the favored selection of both newcomers and experienced users.
