Virtual Private Servers Hosting Definition

Up until several years ago, the only means to get a feature-rich website hosting package was to buy a dedicated server. As a consequence of latter-day software developments, virtual servers have been brought in and they've quickly emerged as one of the most widely used web hosting solutions as they offer superb performance at a quite moderate price. Also famous as a virtual private servers or a virtual dedicated server, this web hosting server is a great solution for resource-swallowing sites.

Virtual Private Servers Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Web Server Hosting?

A small amount of virtual machines are created on a physical server, using its system resources. Each virtual private server behaves exactly like a dedicated hosting server and its resources are ensured, including the CPU usage, memory and data storage space allowances. These resources are much higher than those delivered by any shared hosting package, so a Virtual Server is the best option for heavy resource-demanding script-based web pages with multiple viewers, or if you desire to host a substantial number of domains in the same account.

Each virtual private server is handled via a CP user interface, regularly referenced as a virtualization dashboard. This tool enables you to restart the entire virtual web server or separate services such as HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to supervise and administer all running processes and to check the used up and the remaining system resources. As you will have root access, you can also activate server-side software apps that may be demanded for certain script-driven platforms to function, explore comprehensive web traffic statistics and history of all the tasks running on the virtual private servers. One of the best attributes of the virtualization interface is that you can utilize it to easily activate a hosting Control Panel on the virtual private web hosting server.

There are lots of separate web hosting CPs, but a couple of them are more famous than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you buy a virtual private servers, you can utilize the Control Panel that the hosting distributor is offering, or you can activate your own. This user interface will allow you to manage domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, email mailboxes and everything related to your web hosting account. Administering a Virtual Server account is not different from managing a shared web hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there won't be anything new for you if you get a virtual private servers. More accomplished customers can access the virtual private web server via a Secure Shell tunnel too.

You can even create reseller accounts and have other people carry out the whole task for you, so while you have a virtual web server for your sites, you can also earn decent revenue by selling the system resources that you do not utilize. The reseller and web hosting CP GUIs can be combined with billing and client support tools like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which permits you to set up different plans, to bill your clients directly and to provide a 24-7-365 technical support service.
