Definition of VPS Hosting Services

Up until a couple of years ago, the only way to get a functionality-rich website hosting plan was to buy a dedicated server. As a consequence of recent software application improvements, virtual hosting servers have been brought in and they've quickly become one of the most commonly used web hosting platforms as they offer topflight performance at a quite affordable rate. Also popular as a VPS hosting or a virtual dedicated web server, this web hosting server is the optimal solution for heavy resource-absorbing web sites.

VPS Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Server Hosting?

A couple of virtual servers are created on a physical server, using its system resources. Each virtual private server behaves exactly like a dedicated hosting server and its system resources are ensured, incl. the CPU usage, memory and server space quotas. These system resources are much higher than those delivered by any shared hosting plan, so a Virtual Server is the most appropriate option for heavy resource-requiring script-driven web sites with numerous viewers, or if you desire to host a huge amount of domains in one and the same account.

The Virtualization Console of a Virtual Web Hosting Server

Each virtual private server is managed via a Control Panel tool, frequently referred to as a virtualization interface. This interface allows you to restart the whole VPS web hosting server or various services like HTTP, MySQL, etc., to monitor and manage all active tasks and to check the used up and the unused system resources. As you will obtain full root access, you can also activate server-side software applications that may be demanded for some script-driven platforms to run, explore elaborate bandwidth stats and history of all the services running on the VPS hosting. One of the best attributes of the virtualization tool is that you can utilize it to effortlessly activate a hosting CP on the private virtual web hosting server.

The Web Hosting CP of a VPS Hosting

There are many different Control Panels, but some of them are more widely used than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you purchase a VPS hosting, you can utilize the hosting Control Panel that the hosting provider is offering, or you can activate your own. This interface will allow you to administer domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, e-mails and everything that has to do with your web hosting account. Administering a Virtual Server account is not different from administering a shared website hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there won't be anything unfamiliar to you if you obtain a VPS hosting. More competent users can access the virtual hosting server via a Secure Shell tunnel as well.

Gain Money With Your Virtual Private Web Hosting Server

One of the benefits of handling a Virtual Private Web Hosting Server is that certain CP interfaces include a reseller level of administration, so you can create and sell hosting plans. You can even create reseller accounts and have other individuals carry out all the work on your behalf, so while you have a VPS server for your sites, you can also make decent revenue by selling the resources that you do not use. The reseller and web hosting Control Panel interfaces can be combined with billing and support software platforms such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which enables you to set up different plans, to charge your customers directly and to offer a 24-7-365 ticket support service. As you get complete server root access to the VPS web server, you will be able to activate any server-side software applications or libraries that your customers may demand for their sites, so you will have supremacy over hosts that deliver shared hosting services and cannot activate such software.
