What Does VPS Hosting Mean?

Up until a couple of years ago, the only way to get an advanced web hosting package was to buy a dedicated server. As a consequence of recent software developments, virtual web servers have been brought in and they've swiftly become one of the most commonly used web hosting solutions as they offer top-class performance at a quite moderate price. Also known as a VPS hosting or a virtual dedicated web server, this hosting server is the optimal platform for resource-demanding websites.

A couple of virtual machines are set up on a physical server, sharing its system resources. Each virtual private server works exactly like a dedicated web hosting server and its resources are ensured, including the central processing unit load, RAM and web storage quotas. These system resources are much higher than those delivered by any shared hosting plan, so a Virtual Server is the most perfect choice for high resource-absorbing script-powered portals with lots of visitors, or if you desire to host a huge quantity of domains in one and the very same user account.

The Virtualization Backend of a Virtual Private Server

Each virtual private server is administered via a CP tool, often referred to as a virtualization interface. This interface allows you to restart the whole virtual private web hosting server or separate services such as HTTP, MySQL, etc., to keep an eye on and manage all running processes and to monitor the consumed and the remaining system resources. As you will get complete root access, you can also activate server-side apps that may be required for given script-driven platforms to perform, explore comprehensive traffic statistics and history of all the tasks running on the VPS hosting. One of the best strengths of the virtualization tool is that you can utilize it to quickly activate a Control Panel on the private virtual server.

The Control Panel of a VPS Hosting

There are many separate web hosting Control Panels, but a few of them are more famous than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you purchase a VPS hosting, you can utilize the hosting CP that the hosting supplier is providing, or you can activate your own. This interface will allow you to handle domain names, files, databases, FTP accounts, e-mailbox accounts and everything related to your web hosting account. Managing a Virtual Server account is not different from administering a shared account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there will be nothing unfamiliar to you if you order a VPS hosting. More proficient clients can access the VPS web hosting server through a Secure Shell console too.

Earn Profit With Your Virtual Web Server

One of the upsides of keeping a Virtual Web Server is that some web hosting CP user interfaces include a reseller administration level, so you can create and sell hosting plans. You can even set up reseller accounts and have other persons carry out all the work on your behalf, so while you have a virtual private web hosting server for your sites, you can also earn decent profit by offering the system resources that you do not utilize. The reseller and web hosting Control Panel user interfaces can be integrated with invoicing and client support software platforms such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which allows you to create separate plans, to bill your customers directly and to provide a 24/7 ticket support service. As you receive complete server root access to the VPS hosting server, you will be able to install any server-side software apps or libraries that your clients may demand for their websites, so you will have superiority over service providers that distribute shared hosting services and cannot install such apps.
