VPS Server

To satisfy the demand for low cost, but reliable hosting solutions, companies launched a transitional webspace hosting environment - the virtual server. This is a virtual imitation of a server that operates precisely like a dedicated servers and is much more powerful than any shared hosting account. At the same time, as numerous accounts are created on the very same physical web server and each person pays for their account, the price for a private virtual server plan is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A basic Virtual Private Server account is a bit more high-priced than a hi-end shared web site hosting plan, but its resources exceed decidedly those of the shared hosting account.

Private Virtual Server Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each given account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the web hosting server, so each VPS can run its own Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the remaining ones. The VPS web hosting servers are managed via a virtualization console where customers can see all running processes and terminate or restart them, update server-side software applications, keep track of the used up and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few examples of virtualization systems utilized for creating and administering private virtual web server hosting accounts. They have different requirements in relation to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For example, Virtuozzo can operate on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these OSs to be installed on the actual VPS web servers.

Managed VPS Server Web Hosting Solutions

The virtualization panel gives the client the freedom to manage the VPS hosting server independently from the web hosting provider, saving you the time you’d have waited for their technical support team to reboot a particular service or restore a backup. If the customer is not skilled enough, though, a bunch of top hosting distributors such as 'Lonex Web Hosting' have a voluntary upgrade that includes Operating System and software installation and update operations, private virtual hosting server backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. The impressive fact with 'Lonex Web Hosting' is that there are a couple of VPS server data center locations to pick from: the US, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Website Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Hosting Servers

The domain and the content on the Virtual Private Server are tackled through a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a traditional shared website hosting plan’s. The contrast is that with shared website hosting accounts, clients obtain one particular web hosting Control Panel, while with a Virtual Private Server hosting account, hosting providers usually give a number of CPs to choose from, and the more tech-savvy users can install and use the website hosting Control Panel they want. Some virtualization panels support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to render it simpler for the user. Sadly, the majority of the webspace hosting CPs are not charge-free. Some demand a monthly tax (cPanel asks for thirteen dollars/month, have a peek at, while others demand a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting Control Panels that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss web page hosting Control Panel-supplied virtual hosting servers, it's worth pointing out that, by default, all virtual private web server hosting plans furnished by 'LONEX.COM' ship with the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel. It offers unlimited hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia comes at no extra license cost, hence the monthly price of the virtual private web server hosting package selected by the customer does not alter. What’s more, Hepsia probably sports the best Domain Manager on the web page hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered Private Virtual Web Server Hosting Plans

The Control Panel GUI permits clients to handle domains, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and email address accounts, to monitor bandwidth and load logs and to watch exhaustive statistics about the used up and the free system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the site hosting CPs are intended to work under a particular OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the best known web page hosting CPs, performs solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is developed by the same corporation, functions solely under Windows. Other website hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some hosting Control Panels over others is that they include several control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a different set of functionalities governing the levels below, so it is easy to create a reseller hosting website and begin making money by reselling hosting packages to other individuals. As customers will be informed about what amount of the system resources is consumed, but will not be aware of the real figures, even a small virtual web server account will be enough to launch a small-size hosting firm and gain money.

The VPS: an Independent, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS is a comparatively cheap web hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support online portals such as a busy online store or a huge corporate web page. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred selection of both newcomers and experienced customers.
