VPS Hosting Definition

Up till a few years ago, the sole means to obtain a functionality-rich website hosting plan was to order a dedicated server. As a consequence of recent software app improvements, virtual hosting servers have been introduced and they've quickly emerged as one of the most famous 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 web sites.

VPS Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Server Web Hosting?

A small number of virtual machines are created on a physical server, sharing its system resources. Each VPS behaves precisely like a dedicated web hosting server and its resources are guaranteed, incl. the central processing unit load, memory and server storage space quotas. These resources are much higher than those delivered by any shared hosting plan, so a Virtual Server is the smartest option for high resource-demanding script-driven sites with plenty of visitors, or if you would like to host a huge quantity of domains in one and the same account.

The Virtualization Dashboard of a VPS Web Hosting Server

Each VPS is handled through a Control Panel GUI, regularly referenced as a virtualization interface. This panel allows you to reboot the whole private virtual server or individual services like HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to supervise and administer all running programs and to keep an eye on the used up and the available system resources. As you will have root-level access, you can also activate server-side applications that may be needed for given script-based platforms to perform, observe detailed bandwidth statistics and history of all the services running on the VPS. One of the best benefits of the virtualization tool is that you can use it to effortlessly install a Control Panel on the VPS.

The Control Panel of a VPS

There are plenty of different web hosting CPs, but some of them are more commonly used than the rest - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you purchase a VPS, you can make use of the web hosting Control Panel that the web hosting supplier is offering, or you can install your own. This user interface will permit you to administer domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, email accounts and everything related to your web hosting user account. Administering a Virtual Server account is not different from administering a shared website hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there will be nothing new for you if you obtain a VPS. More practiced clients can access the virtual hosting server via a Secure Shell connection too.

Earn Revenue With Your Virtual Private Web Server

One of the positive aspects of getting a Virtual Private Web Server is that given hosting Control Panel tools include a reseller level of administration, so you can create and sell hosting plans. You can even create reseller accounts and have other people do the entire job for you, so while you have a private virtual hosting server for your web sites, you can also gain good money by offering the resources that you do not use. The reseller and hosting Control Panel GUIs can be combined with invoicing and client support platforms like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which permits you to create different plans, to bill your customers directly and to provide a 24/7/365 customer support service. As you are given complete root access to the virtual private web hosting server, you will be able to install any server-side apps or libraries that your clients may demand for their web sites, so you will have supremacy over web hosts that provide shared hosting services and cannot activate such software apps.
