A description of a virtual server (vps)

To answer the demand for cheap, but reliable hosting solutions, providers started a midway website hosting environment - the Virtual Private Server. This is a virtual imitation of a web server that behaves quite like a : dedicated server and is much more advanced than any shared hosting solution. On the other hand, as a number of accounts are created on the very same physical web server and each person pays for their account, the cost of a private virtual server web hosting package is considerably lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A low-end VPS server package is a little more high-priced than a hi-end shared web hosting plan, but its system resources exceed decidedly those of the shared web page hosting plan.

Private Virtual Web Hosting Server Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each separate account is insulated from all other accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own Operating System and be restarted autonomously from the rest. The VPS hosting servers are administered via a virtualization panel where customers can have a look at all running processes and abort or reboot them, update server-side software applications, have a glimpse at the consumed and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of instances of virtualization platforms utilized for creating and administering virtual private web hosting server packages. They involve diverse requirements with regard to the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they support, and so on. For instance, 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 permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the actual VPS servers.

Managed Virtual Private Web Hosting Server Services

The virtualization console offers the client the freedom to manage the VPS server autonomously from the provider, sparing you the time you’d have waited for their customer support staff to reboot a service or retrieve a backup. If the customer is not skilled enough, though, many top hosting companies such as OzeVision Web Hosting offer an optional upgrade that involves Operating System and software installation and update procedures, virtual server backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. The remarkable circumstance with 'OzeVision Web Hosting' is that there are several private virtual web hosting server datacenter facility locations to select from: the USA, the UK and Australia.

Site Hosting CPs for Private Virtual Hosting Servers

The domains and the web content on the private virtual web hosting server are administered through a site hosting CP GUI, similar to a traditional shared web hosting plan’s. The contrast is that with web hosting packages, users obtain one particular site hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS web server account, hosting providers normally provide a handful of Control Panels to pick from, and the more expert customers can install and utilize the webspace hosting Control Panel they desire. Some virtualization platforms support installing a hosting CP through them to render things easier for the client. Unfortunately, most CPs are paid. Some of these demand a monthly tax (cPanel asks for 13 dollars/month, have a peek at, while others require a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other webspace hosting Control Panels that restrict the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we address site hosting Control Panel-equipped private virtual web servers, it's worth stating that, by default, all virtual server hosting packages supplied by 'OzeVision Web Hosting' offer the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It includes unlimited hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is obtainable at no additional licence cost, hence the monthly cost of the private virtual server account picked by the user does not fluctuate. Moreover, Hepsia probably has the best Domain Manager on the web space hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Based Virtual Server Web Hosting Packages

The web space hosting CP interface enables customers to manage domain name, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol and e-mailbox accounts, to view web traffic and load logs and to observe elaborate statistics concerning the utilized and the remaining resources. Comparable with the virtualization consoles, the web site hosting CPs are created to function under a certain Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most famous web site hosting Control Panels, runs only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is manufactured by the same designer, functions exclusively under Windows. Other webspace hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain web site hosting CPs over others is that they include different levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level can access a separate set of features governing the levels beneath, so it is easy to build a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by reselling web hosting solutions to other persons. As clients will know what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not be able to see the actual numbers, even a small VPS package will suffice to start a small-size shared hosting web hosting firm and collect money.
