Private Virtual Web Hosting Server

A commentary by 'Virtual Dedicated Hosting'.


To fulfill the need for cheap, but reliable hosting solutions, companies started an intermediate webspace hosting solution - the virtual web server. This is a virtual emulation of a web server that works exactly like a dedicated servers and is much more powerful than any shared web space hosting package. On the other hand, as lots of accounts are hosted on the same physical hosting server and each individual pays for their account, the cost of a virtual server web hosting account is significantly lower than the cost of a dedicated web hosting server. A small-scale Virtual Private Server package is a little more expensive than a hi-end shared hosting package, but its resources surpass decidedly those of the shared web hosting account.


Private Virtual Server Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each particular account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the web server, so each virtual private hosting server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the remaining ones. The Virtual Private Servers are administered via a virtualization panel where clients can take a glimpse at all running processes and stop or reboot them, update server-side software applications, take a look at the consumed and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are just several instances of virtualization consoles utilized for creating and administering virtual server accounts. They have various requirements about the CPU architecture, the OSs they are compatible with, and so on. For instance, Virtuozzo can run on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be activated on a web server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Operating Systems to be installed on the concrete virtual private web servers.


Managed VPS Hosting Server Services

The virtualization console gives the customer the power to administer the virtual private web hosting server autonomously from the provider, saving you the time you’d have waited for their client support staff to reboot a service or restore a backup. If the customer is not experienced, though, a handful of top hosting distributors such as 'NTChosting.com' include an optional upgrade that encompasses Operating System and software application installation and update operations, VPS server backups, as well as dedicated admin support and troubleshooting procedures. The astonishing thing with 'NTChosting' is that there are several private virtual hosting server datacenter facility locations to select from: the USA, Britain and Australia.


Web Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Web Servers

The domain and the content on the virtual private web server are manipulated through a web space hosting CP GUI, similar to a conventional shared web space hosting account’s. The difference is that with shared website hosting accounts, customers get one concrete site hosting Control Panel, while with a VPS server hosting plan, hosting providers typically provide a handful of website hosting Control Panels to choose from, and the more advanced customers can install and make use of the site hosting CP they desire. Certain virtualization platforms support installing a hosting CP through them to render it simpler for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting CPs are not free. Some of them require a monthly fee (cPanel asks for $13 USD/month, take a gaze at BuycPanel.com), while others demand a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other CPs that restrict the number of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we address webspace hosting Control Panel-equipped VPS servers, it's useful to mention that, by default, all Virtual Private Server web hosting packages provided by 'NTChosting.com' arrive with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The latter offers unmetered hosted domain name allowance. Hepsia is available at no additional license charge, thus the monthly cost of the virtual web server hosting plan selected by the user does not alter. What’s more, Hepsia perhaps includes the best Domain Manager on the web hosting Control Panel market.


CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Driven VPS Hosting Plans

The Control Panel user interface allows clients to handle domain names, files, databases, FTP and electronic mail accounts, to see traffic and load logs and to monitor exhaustive stats about the utilized and the free system resources. Comparable with the virtualization panels, the web hosting CPs are devised to perform under a specific Operating System. For example, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used webspace hosting CPs, runs exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is tailored by the very same designer, functions exclusively under Windows. Other web site 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 site hosting Control Panels over others is that they involve different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level has access to a different set of specs governing the levels underneath, so it is simple to launch a reseller hosting website and start making money by selling web hosting solutions to other people. As clients will be informed about what amount of the system resources is used up, but will not see the actual figures, even a small virtual private web hosting server plan will be enough to open a small-size website hosting firm and earn cash.


The Virtual Server: an Autonomous, Inexpensive Solution

A VPS web server is a relatively cheap web hosting service, but it is powerful enough to support websites such as a highly visited online store or a large corporate portal. As its administration is simple, it is the preferred pick of both green hands and experienced customers.
