An explanation of a virtual private hosting server (vps)

To meet the demand for moderately priced, but reliable hosting solutions, companies launched a transitional website hosting platform - the private virtual hosting server. This is a virtual simulation of a server that functions just like a : dedicated hosting server and is much more advanced than any shared hosting plan. At the same time, as multiple accounts are hosted on the very same physical hosting server and each person pays for their account, the price for a virtual private hosting server package is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated server. A basic private virtual web hosting server plan is slightly more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared web hosting plan, but its resources exceed by far those of the shared hosting package.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Server Virtualization Platforms: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each separate account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the web server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be restarted independently from the other ones. The VPS web servers are managed via a virtualization console where clients can monitor all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side applications, see the consumed and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a couple of instances of virtualization consoles used for creating and handling VPS hosting server plans. They involve various requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For example, Virtuozzo can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the concrete private virtual servers.

Managed Private Virtual Server Hosting Solutions

The virtualization system gives the user the power to administer the VPS independently from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you’d have waited for their technical support team to reboot a specific service or restore a backup. If the client is not skilled enough, though, several top hosting companies such as Lonex provide a voluntary upgrade that comprises OS and software application installation and update procedures, VPS server backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. The remarkable thing with 'Lonex' is that there are a handful of virtual web hosting server data center locations to choose from: America, Great Britain and Australia.

Hosting Control Panels for VPSs

The domain names and the web content on the virtual hosting server are administered via a web page hosting Control Panel tool, similar to a normal shared web hosting account’s. The contrast is that with web hosting packages, clients obtain one particular web hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual server plan, providers traditionally offer a number of hosting CPs to select from, and the more knowledgeable customers can install and utilize the webspace hosting CP they want. Certain virtualization systems support installing a Control Panel through them to render it simpler for the customer. Unluckily, the majority of the web space hosting Control Panels are not free. Some of them demand a monthly fee (cPanel charges $13/month, take a glimpse at, while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of web space hosting CP-supplied virtual web servers, it's useful to point out that, by default, all private virtual web server hosting plans furnished by 'Lonex' are stocked with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is attainable at no extra licence charge, hence the monthly cost of the VPS server web hosting account picked by the customer does not fluctuate. Besides, Hepsia perhaps includes the best Domain Manager on the website hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Server Hosting Accounts

The web hosting CP GUI allows customers to manage domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail accounts, to view traffic and load logs and to observe detailed statistics concerning the used up and the available system resources. Like the virtualization consoles, the hosting CPs are constructed to perform under a given Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most famous web site hosting Control Panels, works only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is devised by the same company, operates exclusively under Windows. Other web space hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain hosting CPs over others is that they involve different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a separate set of functionalities governing the levels below, so it is easy to launch a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting plans to other individuals. As customers will be aware of what percentage of the resources is consumed, but will not observe the actual figures, even a low-end virtual private web server account will be enough to launch a small shared web space hosting web hosting enterprise and gain money.

The Virtual Web Server: an Autonomous, Moderately Priced Solution

A Virtual Private Server is a comparatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support sites such as a highly visited web store or a big corporate web site. As its management is easy, it is the preferred pick of both novices and practiced clients.
