VPS Hosting Explanation

Up till a couple of years ago, the only means to get a feature-rich hosting plan was to purchase a dedicated server. As a consequence of recent software improvements, virtual web hosting servers have been introduced and they've quickly evolved into one of the most widely used web hosting solutions as they offer superb performance at a quite reasonable rate. Also famous as a VPS or a virtual dedicated web server, this web hosting server is the optimal solution for heavy resource-swallowing sites.

VPS Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Web Hosting?

A small number of virtual servers are created on a physical server, utilizing its resources. Each VPS works precisely like a dedicated web server and its resources are guaranteed, incl. the CPU load, RAM and disk storage allowances. These resources are much higher than those delivered by any shared hosting plan, so a Virtual Server is the most appropriate option for heavy resource-demanding script-based web sites with multiple viewers, or if you desire to host a large number of domains in one and the very same user account.

The Virtualization Panel of a VPS Web Server

Each VPS is managed via a CP tool, regularly referred to as a virtualization interface. This user interface enables you to restart the whole virtual private web hosting server or different services such as HTTP, MySQL, etc., to keep track of and administer all active processes and to check the consumed and the available resources. As you will obtain full root privileges, you can also install server-side applications that may be demanded for specific script-based platforms to operate, observe detailed monthly bandwidth statistics and history of all the tasks running on the VPS. One of the best upsides of the virtualization tool is that you can utilize it to effortlessly install a web hosting Control Panel on the Virtual Private Server.

The Web Hosting Control Panel of a VPS

There are a lot of separate hosting Control Panels, but some of them are more widely used than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you order a VPS, you can make use of the web hosting Control Panel that the hosting provider is offering, or you can activate your own. This interface will allow you to administer domain names, files, databases, FTP accounts, e-mail addresses and everything related to your web hosting user account. Administering a Virtual Server account is not different from managing a shared account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there will be nothing unfamiliar to you if you buy a VPS. More practiced customers can access the Virtual Private Server through an SSH terminal as well.

Gain Revenue With Your VPS Web Hosting Server

One of the positive sides of handling a VPS Web Hosting Server is that given web hosting Control Panel tools offer a reseller administration level, so you can set up and sell hosting plans. You can even create reseller accounts and have other individuals carry out the whole task for you, so while you have a private virtual web server for your web sites, you can also make decent profit by selling the resources that you do not utilize. The reseller and web hosting CP tools can be integrated with billing and customer support platforms like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which permits you to create separate plans, to charge your clients directly and to offer a 24x7x365 customer support service. As you gain complete root access to the virtual hosting server, you will be able to install any server-side software apps or libraries that your customers may need for their sites, so you will have superiority over web hosting distributors that provide shared hosting services and cannot activate such software.
