Up until a couple of years ago, the sole way to obtain an advanced hosting package was to order a dedicated server. As a consequence of recent software application improvements, virtual servers have been brought in and they've swiftly turned into one of the most famous web hosting solutions as they offer astonishing performance at a quite affordable price. Also famous as a VPS hosting or a virtual dedicated server, this web hosting server is an excellent solution for heavy resource-absorbing web sites.

VPS Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Web Server Hosting?

A small number of virtual servers are set up on a physical server, sharing its system resources. Each virtual private server behaves exactly like a dedicated web server and its resources are guaranteed, incl. the CPU load, memory and disk space quotas. These resources are much higher than those provided by any shared hosting plan, so a Virtual Server is the most excellent option for heavy resource-absorbing script-based web sites with many visitors, or if you want to host a large number of domains in the very same user account.

The Virtualization Console of a Private Virtual Hosting Server

Each virtual private server is administered through a CP interface, often referred to as a virtualization interface. This dashboard allows you to restart the whole private virtual web server or various services such as HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to keep track of and administer all running processes and to check the consumed and the unused resources. As you will have full root access, you can also activate server-side software applications that may be needed for given script-based platforms to run, explore comprehensive traffic statistics and history of all the processes running on the VPS hosting. One of the best qualities of the virtualization interface is that you can utilize it to quickly install a CP on the private virtual hosting server.

The Hosting Control Panel of a VPS Hosting

There are a lot of diverse web hosting Control Panels, but a couple of them are more famous than the rest - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you order a VPS hosting, you can avail of the web hosting Control Panel that the web hosting plans provider is providing, or you can activate your own. This interface will allow you to administer domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, e-mail box accounts and everything related to your web hosting user account. Administering a Virtual Server account is not different from managing a shared website hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there will be nothing new for you if you obtain a VPS hosting. More proficient users can access the private virtual web hosting server through a Secure Shell connection too.

Earn Profit With Your Virtual Hosting Server

One of the positive aspects of ordering a Virtual Hosting Server is that given Control Panel tools offer a reseller level of administration, so you can create and sell hosting plans. You can even set up reseller accounts and have other persons do all the work on your behalf, so while you have a server for your websites, you can also earn good money by selling the resources that you do not utilize. The reseller and web hosting Control Panel interfaces can be combined with billing and customer support software tools like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which permits you to create separate plans, to charge your customers directly and to provide a round-the-clock customer support service. As you are provided with complete root-level access to the virtual web server, you will be able to install any server-side applications or libraries that your customers may demand for their web sites, so you will have an edge over providers that offer shared hosting services and cannot activate such software.
