To fulfill the demand for budget, but reliable hosting services, suppliers introduced a midway website hosting platform - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual imitation of a hosting server that performs just like a : dedicated web server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting plan. At the same time, as plenty of accounts are hosted on the very same physical web hosting server and each customer pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers plan is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic virtual private servers account is a little more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared website hosting account, but its resources excel decidedly those of the shared hosting plan.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM

Each separate account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be rebooted independently from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where users can keep track of all running processes and stop or restart them, update server-side software applications, watch the utilized and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are just a few examples of software systems utilized for setting up and handling private virtual web hosting server plans. They involve different requirements in regard to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they support, etc. For instance, KVM can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the actual virtual web servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Solutions

The virtualization system offers the user the freedom to manage the virtual private servers independently from the web hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their customer support team to reboot a given service or recover a backup. If the user is not competent enough, however, we have an optional upgrade that incorporates Operating System and software installation and update procedures, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. We also have a handful of virtual private hosting server datacenter locations to select from: the USA, Great Britain and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the web content on the Virtual Private Server are administered through a Control Panel tool, similar to a conventional shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with website hosting accounts, users get one particular hosting CP, while with a virtual private servers account, providers typically offer several website hosting CPs to choose from, and the more expert clients can install and make use of the web hosting Control Panel they wish. Certain virtualization systems support installing a website hosting CP through them to make it simpler for the customer. Unfortunately, most website hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some of them ask for a monthly fee (cPanel requires thirteen dollars/month, have a look at, while others require a licence fee (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that limit the amount of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we talk about website hosting Control Panel-equipped virtual private servers, it's worth stating that, by default, all virtual private servers plans offered by us incorporate the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain quotas. Hepsia is offered at no extra licence charge, thus the monthly cost of the VPS plan picked by the user does not alter. Moreover, Hepsia probably sports the best Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered Virtual Private Servers Accounts

The website hosting CP GUI permits users to administer domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and mail address accounts, to observe traffic and load logs and to view thorough statistics concerning the used up and the available resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the web hosting Control Panels are built to run under a certain OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most famous web hosting CPs, performs exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is conceived by the same corporation, works only under Windows. Other web hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given web hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a different set of features governing the levels underneath, so it is easy to set up a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by reselling web hosting packages to other persons. As clients will view what percentage of the system resources is used up, but will not be able to view the real numbers, even a small-size VPS web hosting account will be enough to establish a small-sized shared website hosting website hosting enterprise and make capital.
