A definition of a virtual private hosting server (vps)

To meet the demand for economical, but reliable hosting services, vendors commenced an intermediate website hosting environment - the private virtual server. This is a virtual simulation of a server that performs precisely like a : dedicated web server and is much more feature-rich than any shared website hosting account. At the same time, as a number of accounts are created on the very same physical server and each customer pays for their account, the price for a virtual private hosting server solution is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A low-end VPS hosting server account is slightly more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared hosting account, but its resources surpass decidedly those of the shared hosting package.

VPS Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each separate account is insulated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be restarted autonomously from the rest. The virtual private web servers are managed through a virtualization panel where customers can have a glimpse at all running tasks and abort or restart them, update server-side software, keep track of the used up and the free system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of instances of virtualization panels utilized for creating and handling private virtual server web hosting accounts. They involve various requirements about the CPU architecture, the Operating Systems they are compatible with, etc. For instance, Virtuozzo can operate on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual virtual servers.

Managed VPS Web Server Services

The virtualization platform lends the client the power to administer the VPS server autonomously from the provider, sparing you the time you’d have waited for their technical support team to reboot a given service or retrieve a backup. If the user is not competent enough, however, various top hosting companies such as CyberNexus General Industries have a voluntary upgrade that comprises OS and software installation and update procedures, private virtual server backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. The remarkable circumstance with 'CyberNexus General Industries' is that there are a couple of virtual server data center facility locations to select from: the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Web Page Hosting Control Panels for Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers

The domains and the content on the private virtual hosting server are managed through a web hosting CP GUI, similar to a regular shared web hosting account’s. The difference is that with website hosting packages, customers get one concrete hosting Control Panel, while with a virtual web hosting server plan, web hosting providers commonly present a handful of web site hosting CPs to pick from, and the more skillful customers can install and use the hosting CP they wish. Certain virtualization systems support installing a website hosting Control Panel through them to render things easier for the client. Unfortunately, most web hosting Control Panels are not charge-free. Some of these ask for a monthly fee (cPanel asks for $13 USD/month, go to, while others demand a license tax (DirectAdmin). There are other website hosting Control Panels that limit the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we speak of site hosting CP-supplied VPS servers, it's useful to state that, by default, all private virtual web server hosting plans supplied by 'CyberNexus General Industries' arrive with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unmetered hosted domain allowance. Hepsia comes at no further licence charge, hence the monthly price of the virtual private web server hosting plan chosen by the customer does not alter. Last, but not least, Hepsia probably sports the finest Domain Manager on the hosting CP marketplace.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered Virtual Private Server Hosting Packages

The web hosting CP tool enables users to administer domain name, files, databases, FTP and e-mail address accounts, to observe web traffic and load logs and to see exhaustive stats concerning the consumed and the available resources. Similar to the virtualization consoles, the site hosting Control Panels are constructed to work under a certain OS. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most well known web hosting Control Panels, performs only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is made by the same designer, works exclusively under Windows. Other hosting Control Panels such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain website hosting CPs over others is that they include different control levels - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of specs governing the levels beneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by selling web hosting services to other people. As clients will keep track of what percentage of the resources is used up, but will not be aware of the real figures, even a small-size virtual private hosting server account will be enough to run a small shared web hosting website hosting firm and earn capital.

The Private Virtual Server: an Autonomous, Cut-Price Solution

A private virtual web server is a relatively cheap hosting service, but it is advanced enough to support web portals such as a very famous web store or a huge corporate website. As its management is easy, it is the favored selection of both inexperienced users and qualified customers.
