VPS Hosting Server
To meet the need for inexpensive, but reliable hosting services, suppliers commenced a transitional website hosting solution - the private virtual web hosting server. This is a virtual imitation of a hosting server that performs exactly like a dedicated server and is much more feature-rich than any shared web hosting package. On the other hand, as a number of accounts are created on the same physical hosting server and each person pays for their account, the price for a virtual server hosting solution is markedly lower than the cost of a dedicated hosting server. A low-end VPS account is a little more expensive than a hi-end shared web space hosting plan, but its resources exceed by far those of the shared web hosting plan.

Dedicated Memory (RAM): 1024 MB
CPU Share: 0.8 GHz

Hosted Domains: Unlimited
Operating System (OS): CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian
Service Uninterruptedness: 99.9% Uptime
Private Virtual Web Server Virtualization Consoles: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo
Each specific account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the hosting server, so each virtual hosting server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted autonomously from the other ones. The virtual hosting servers are administered via a virtualization panel where clients can monitor all running tasks and stop or restart them, update server-side applications, see the utilized and the remaining system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are only several instances of software systems used for creating and handling VPS web hosting plans. They involve diverse requirements with regard to the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, etc. For example, Virtuozzo can work on physical machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the concrete virtual web hosting servers.
Managed Virtual Private Server Services
The virtualization system offers the customer the power to administer the VPS web hosting server independently from the hosting provider, saving you the time you'd have waited for their client support staff to reboot a particular service or recover a backup. If the customer is not skilled enough, though, a handful of Virtual Private Server distributors such as 'Lonex' offer an optional upgrade that comprises Operating System and software installation and update operations, VPS server backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting procedures. The impressive circumstance with 'Lonex.com' is that there are a number of virtual hosting server datacenter locations to choose from: the United States of America, Great Britain and Australia.
Control Panels for Virtual Hosting Servers
The domain names and the web content on the private virtual server are managed via a website hosting CP user interface, similar to a typical shared web site hosting plan's. The contrast is that with shared hosting plans, users receive one specific website hosting CP, while with a VPS plan, hosting providers normally provide a bunch of webspace hosting Control Panels to choose from, and the more experienced clients can install and avail of the web hosting CP they desire. Certain virtualization panels support installing a Control Panel through them to make things simpler for the customer. Sadly, most web page hosting Control Panels are not cost-free. Some of them require a monthly tax (cPanel requires $13/month, visit BuycPanel.com), while others require a licence tax (DirectAdmin). There are other web hosting CPs that limit the number of the hosted domain names (Plesk). While we discuss web site hosting Control Panel-supplied VPS hosting servers, it's good to point out that, by default, all virtual private web hosting server accounts distributed by 'Lonex.com' are fitted out with the Hepsia webspace hosting CP. It includes unlimited hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is attainable at no further license cost, hence the monthly cost of the private virtual server hosting package picked by the client does not alter. In addition, Hepsia probably includes the greatest Domain Manager on the site hosting Control Panel market.
CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered Virtual Private Web Server Hosting Accounts
The web page hosting CP tool permits clients to manage domains, files, databases, FTP and email accounts, to monitor bandwidth and load logs and to take a look at elaborate statistics regarding the utilized and the remaining system resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the web space hosting CPs are created to function under a specific OS. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widely used web space hosting CPs, works only under Linux CentOS, while Enkompass, which is fabricated by the same firm, runs only under Windows. Other web space hosting CPs such as Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several OSs. Hepsia is compatible with the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of some webspace hosting CPs over others is that they have different levels of control - administrator, reseller and client. Each level can access a separate set of functionalities controlling the levels beneath, so it is easy to create a reseller website and commence making money by offering web hosting plans to other persons. As clients will watch what amount of the resources is consumed, but will not be able to view the actual numbers, even a small private virtual web server hosting plan will be enough to establish a small-size webspace hosting company and obtain capital.
The Private Virtual Server: an Independent, Reasonably Priced Solution
A virtual private web hosting server is a relatively cheap website hosting solution, but it is advanced enough to support web portals such as a highly visited online store or a huge company website. As its management is easy, it is the favored selection of both inexperienced users and practiced clients.
