Virtual Private Servers Definition
To fulfill the demand for economical, but reliable hosting solutions, vendors started an intermediate hosting platform - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual emulation of a server that behaves quite like a : dedicated server and is much more powerful than any shared web hosting solution. At the same time, as many accounts are set up on the same physical server and each individual pays for their account, the price for a virtual private servers solution is much lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale virtual private servers account is a little more high-priced than a hi-end shared website hosting plan, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared account.
Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and KVM
Each individual account is insulated from all other accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the rest. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization panel where users can keep track of all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software, see the consumed and the remaining resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are only a few examples of virtualization consoles used for creating and handling VPS server hosting accounts. They have different requirements with regard to the central processing unit architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For instance, KVM can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual servers.
Managed Virtual Private Servers Solutions
The virtualization platform lends the user the power to administer the virtual private servers autonomously from the provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to restart a particular service or recover a backup. If the user is not experienced, however, we offer an optional upgrade that encompasses Operating System and software application installation and update procedures, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a handful of virtual private web server data center facility locations to select from: the USA, Great Britain and Australia.
Website Hosting CPs for Virtual Private Servers
The domain names and the web content on the virtual server are manipulated via a web hosting CP interface, similar to a regular shared web hosting plan's. The distinction is that with web hosting packages, customers obtain one concrete web hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers package, hosting providers normally present several hosting CPs to select from, and the more competent customers can install and use the website hosting CP they like. Some virtualization platforms support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to make things easier for the customer. Sadly, the majority of the website hosting Control Panels are paid. Some of these require a monthly tax (cPanel requests $13/month, have a look at BuycPanel.com), while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other CPs that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss website hosting CP-equipped virtual private servers, it's useful to point out that, by default, all virtual private servers accounts supplied by us offer the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is offered at no extra licence charge, thus the monthly cost of the Virtual Private Server hosting package chosen by the user does not change. In addition, Hepsia perhaps includes the greatest Domain Manager on the website hosting Control Panel marketplace.
CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based Virtual Private Servers Packages
The website hosting Control Panel interface permits customers to handle domain name, files, databases, FTP and email address accounts, to keep track of web traffic and load logs and to have a glimpse at detailed statistics about the utilized and the left system resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the web hosting CPs are intended to function under a particular Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous website hosting CPs, operates only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is built by the same firm, functions only under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain web hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a different set of features controlling the levels beneath, so it is simple to build a reseller web hosting website and commence making money by selling web hosting services to other individuals. As customers will know what amount of the system resources is utilized, but will not be able to view the actual figures, even a small-size virtual web server hosting plan will suffice to open a small-size shared hosting web hosting enterprise and collect cash.
