VPS Hosting Server

To fulfill the need for modestly priced, but reliable hosting solutions, companies initiated a transitional hosting solution - the virtual server. This is a virtual simulation of a hosting server that works quite like a dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting account. At the same time, as numerous accounts are set up on the very same physical web hosting server and each user pays for their account, the cost of a VPS package is considerably lower than the price for a dedicated hosting server. A small-scale VPS plan is a bit more high-priced than a hi-end shared web page hosting account, but its system resources excel decidedly those of the shared hosting package.

Virtual Private Web Hosting Server Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each particular account is insulated from the rest of the accounts on the web server, so each virtual hosting server can run its own OS and be rebooted autonomously from the rest. The VPS web servers are administered via a virtualization panel where users can take a look at all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side software, take a glimpse at the consumed and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of instances of software applications used for setting up and managing Virtual Private Server packages. They have different requirements with respect to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For example, Virtuozzo can run on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be activated on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual VPS servers.

Managed Virtual Private Hosting Server Solutions

The virtualization panel lends the user the power to administer the private virtual web hosting server independently from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their support staff to restart a specific service or restore a backup. If the client is not competent enough, though, a couple of virtual server hosting suppliers such as 'Lonex' include an optional upgrade that involves OS and software installation and update operations, virtual private hosting server backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting operations. The remarkable detail with 'Lonex.com' is that there are a handful of virtual private web hosting server server farm locations to choose from: America, Britain and Australia.

Site Hosting CPs for Virtual Hosting Servers

The domain names and the web content on the private virtual web hosting server are managed via a webspace hosting CP tool, similar to a classic shared webspace hosting account's. The contrast is that with shared website hosting accounts, clients get one specific webspace hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS hosting plan, providers usually provide a bunch of Control Panels to select from, and the more knowledgeable clients can install and make use of the Control Panel they like. Certain virtualization panels support installing a web space hosting Control Panel through them to make things simpler for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting CPs are not free of cost. Some of them demand a monthly tax (cPanel wants $13/month, take a glimpse at BuycPanel.com), while others require a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other site hosting CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we speak of hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS servers, it's worth pointing out that, by default, all Virtual Private Server web hosting plans furnished by 'Lonex' come with the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unlimited hosted domain allowance. Hepsia is available at no additional licence charge, hence the monthly price of the private virtual server hosting account chosen by the customer does not fluctuate. Besides, Hepsia perhaps offers the best Domain Manager on the web space hosting Control Panel marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven Virtual Web Server Hosting Accounts

The Control Panel GUI allows clients to manage domains, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mail address accounts, to monitor traffic and load logs and to observe thorough stats regarding the utilized and the remaining system resources. Similar to the virtualization panels, the web page hosting Control Panels are developed to perform under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web site hosting Control Panels, performs solely under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is tailored by the very same designer, runs exclusively under Windows. Other web space hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia support several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of some web page hosting Control Panels over others is that they have different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of functions controlling the levels beneath, so it is simple to build a reseller hosting website and start making money by offering website hosting plans to other individuals. As clients will keep track of what amount of the system resources is used up, but will not be able to see the real numbers, even a small-size virtual private web hosting server account will suffice to start a small web page hosting corporation and collect money.

The VPS Server: an Independent, Moderately Priced Solution

A VPS server is a relatively cheap web hosting solution, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a very popular online store or a big company web page. As its administration is easy, it is the favored choice of both beginners and skilled clients.
