A definition of a private virtual web hosting server (vps)

To satisfy the need for budget, but reliable hosting services, suppliers commenced a transitional site hosting platform - the VPS. This is a virtual imitation of a web server that works precisely like a : dedicated server and is much more advanced than any shared hosting account. On the other hand, as multiple accounts are set up on the very same physical web hosting server and each client pays for their account, the price for a private virtual web server hosting account is markedly lower than the price for a dedicated server. A small-scale virtual private web server account is slightly more expensive than the most feature-rich shared web hosting plan, but its system resources surpass decidedly those of the shared webspace hosting package.

VPS Web Hosting Server Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each particular account is insulated from all other accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a different OS and be rebooted autonomously from the other ones. The VPS web hosting servers are administered through a virtualization console where customers can observe all running processes and abort or reboot them, update server-side applications, keep an eye on the consumed and the free resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of instances of software systems utilized for creating and handling virtual web hosting server plans. They involve diverse requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, Virtuozzo can operate on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual web hosting servers.

Managed VPS Web Hosting Services

The virtualization system lends the customer the power to manage the virtual web hosting server independently from the provider, saving you the time you’d have waited for their support staff to restart a specific service or restore a backup. If the user is not skilled enough, though, many top hosting distributors such as GrandGraphics provide an optional upgrade that comprises Operating System and software application installation and update procedures, VPS server backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. The impressive fact with 'GrandGraphics' is that there are several VPS web server data center facility locations to choose from: the United States, Britain and Australia.

Website Hosting CPs for Private Virtual Hosting Servers

The domain names and the content on the private virtual hosting server are tackled through a web site hosting CP user interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting plan’s. The difference is that with web site hosting plans, customers get one concrete hosting Control Panel, while with a Virtual Private Server web hosting package, providers commonly offer several web page hosting CPs to choose from, and the more proficient users can install and use the hosting Control Panel they want. Some virtualization platforms support installing a web page hosting CP through them to render things easier for the user. Unluckily, most Control Panels are not free of charge. Some of them require a monthly fee (cPanel asks for $13/month, have a glimpse at, while others demand a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web site hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss CP-supplied virtual private web hosting servers, it's worthwhile to mention that, by default, all Virtual Private Server web hosting plans furnished by 'GrandGraphics' come with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is available at no further licence cost, so the monthly price of the Virtual Private Server package selected by the user does not alter. Last, but not least, Hepsia perhaps includes the greatest Domain Manager on the webspace hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Web Server Hosting Plans

The Control Panel user interface allows customers to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and email mailbox accounts, to observe bandwidth and load logs and to take a look at detailed stats concerning the used up and the left resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the hosting CPs are developed to function under a given Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the best known web hosting CPs, works solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same corporation, works exclusively under Windows. Other website hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several Operating Systems. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of given Control Panels over others is that they involve different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of functionalities controlling the levels beneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and start making money by reselling web hosting solutions to other people. As clients will know what amount of the system resources is used up, but will not be able to see the real figures, even a small virtual private web hosting server account will suffice to set up a small-size shared web hosting web site hosting company and earn capital.

The Private Virtual Hosting Server: an Autonomous, Low-Cost Solution

A virtual server is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support online portals such as a highly visited web store or a big company web site. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred choice of both inexperienced clients and skilled clients.
