A description of a vps (vps)

To fulfill the need for reasonably priced, but reliable hosting services, distributors introduced an intermediate webspace hosting environment - the virtual web server. This is a virtual simulation of a hosting server that functions quite like a : dedicated web server and is much more feature-rich than any shared webspace hosting package.

VPS Web Hosting Server Virtualization Systems: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each specific account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run its own OS and be restarted autonomously from the remaining ones. The virtual private hosting servers are managed through a virtualization console where clients can monitor all running tasks and terminate or restart them, update server-side applications, keep track of the used up and the available resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are only a couple of instances of virtualization consoles used for creating and handling VPS web server accounts. They involve different requirements about the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, and so on.

Web Page Hosting Control Panels for Virtual Private Servers

The domains and the web content on the private virtual server are tackled through a hosting Control Panel user interface, similar to a standard shared web hosting plan’s. The contrast is that with webspace hosting plans, customers receive one concrete Control Panel, while with a virtual private web server hosting account, web hosting providers normally give a number of hosting Control Panels to pick from, and the more skillful clients can install and use the website hosting CP they wish. Certain virtualization panels support installing a web site hosting Control Panel through them to make it easier for the client. Unluckily, the majority of the web hosting CPs are not cost-free.

For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used hosting Control Panels, performs exclusively under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is constructed by the same designer, operates solely under Windows. Other site hosting CPs like Plesk and Hepsia support several OSs. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The superiority of certain website hosting CPs over others is that they involve several levels of control - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a separate set of specs governing the levels underneath, so it is simple to set up a reseller web hosting website and begin making money by selling web hosting solutions to other people. As clients will know what percentage of the system resources is used up, but will not be able to view the real figures, even a small virtual private web hosting server account will suffice to launch a small shared web page hosting webspace hosting enterprise and gain money.
