To answer the demand for economical, but reliable hosting solutions, providers commenced an intermediate web hosting environment - the virtual private servers. This is a virtual imitation of a web hosting server that works quite like a : dedicated web hosting server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting package. On the other hand, as plenty of accounts are hosted on the same physical machine and each user pays for their account, the cost of a virtual private servers account is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale virtual private servers package is a bit more expensive than a hi-end shared web hosting package, but its resources excel decidedly those of the shared web hosting account.

Virtual Private Servers Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and KVM

Each given account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be restarted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Servers are managed via a virtualization console where clients can monitor all running tasks and terminate or restart them, update server-side applications, watch the used up and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, KVM, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few instances of software systems used for creating and administering private virtual hosting server accounts. They have different requirements regarding the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For example, KVM can function on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these OSs to be activated on the actual private virtual web servers.

Managed Virtual Private Servers Services

The virtualization system gives the customer the power to administer the virtual private servers autonomously from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to reboot a service or recover a backup. If the user is not competent enough, however, we include a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update operations, virtual private servers backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. We also have a bunch of Virtual Private Server server farm locations to pick from: the US, England and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Private Servers

The domain names and the web content on the VPS server are tackled via a web hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a traditional shared web hosting plan's. The contrast is that with website hosting packages, users get one concrete website hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual private servers plan, web hosting providers commonly present a bunch of website hosting CPs to pick from, and the more practiced users can install and use the website hosting CP they wish. Certain virtualization platforms support installing a web hosting CP through them to render it simpler for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting CPs are not cost-free. Some of these demand a monthly tax (cPanel requires thirteen dollars/month, have a peek at, while others request a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we talk about website hosting CP-equipped virtual private servers, it's good to mention that, by default, all virtual private servers packages supplied by us comprise the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is obtainable at no further license cost, thus the monthly cost of the virtual server account chosen by the customer does not change. Besides, Hepsia probably has the best Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered Virtual Private Servers Accounts

The web hosting Control Panel interface enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and electronic mail accounts, to monitor traffic and load logs and to view thorough statistics regarding the utilized and the available resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the Control Panels are designed to run under a particular Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous Control Panels, operates only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is constructed by the very same corporation, operates exclusively under Windows. Other CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given website hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of specifications controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to launch a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting packages to other people. As clients will monitor what amount of the resources is used up, but will not see the actual numbers, even a small VPS server web hosting account will be enough to set up a small-sized shared web hosting website hosting enterprise and receive money.

The Virtual Private Servers: an Autonomous, Affordably Priced Solution

A virtual private servers is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web portals such as a very famous web store or a large corporate portal. As its management is simple, it is the favored selection of both inexperienced customers and practiced clients.
