What is a Virtual Private Server?

Up till a couple of years ago, the only means to get a powerful hosting package was to order a dedicated server. As a consequence of latter-day software application improvements, virtual web servers have been introduced and they've quickly emerged as one of the most popular web hosting solutions as they offer top-hole performance at a quite low rate. Also known as a VPS hosting server or a virtual dedicated server, this web hosting server is the optimal platform for resource-absorbing web pages.

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

A small quantity of virtual servers are set up on a physical machine, sharing its resources. Each private virtual web server works precisely like a dedicated web hosting server and its system resources are ensured, including the CPU usage, RAM and web space quotas. These system resources are much higher than those furnished by any shared hosting plan, so a virtual private web server hosting plan is the most prudent choice for busy script-driven web pages with a lot of viewers, or if you desire to host a large amount of domains in one and the very same account.

The Virtualization Backend of a VPS Hosting Server

Each VPS hosting server is administered via a Control Panel tool, frequently referred to as a virtualization dashboard. This interface enables you to restart the entire Virtual Private Server or separate services like HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to monitor and administer all active programs and to check the consumed and the remaining system resources. As you will obtain full server root privileges, you can also activate server-side software applications that may be necessary for given script-based platforms to perform, observe elaborate monthly bandwidth statistics and history of all the tasks running on the private virtual web hosting server. One of the greatest qualities of the virtualization dashboard is that you can utilize it to quickly install a Control Panel on the private virtual server.

The Web Hosting Control Panel of a Virtual Private Web Server

There are lots of different web hosting CPs, but a couple of them are more commonly used than the rest - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you buy a VPS, you can avail of the web hosting Control Panel that the hosting plans provider is providing, or you can activate your own. This interface will enable you to administer domain names, files, databases, FTP accounts, mail accounts and everything that has to do with your hosting user account. Administering a VPS web hosting account is not different from administering a shared web site 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 server. More tech-savvy customers can access the virtual private web hosting server via a Secure Shell connection too.

Gain Cash With Your Virtual Server

One of the positive aspects of having a private virtual hosting server is that particular web hosting CP GUIs include a reseller level of administration, so you can set up and sell hosting plans. You can even set up reseller accounts and have other people carry out the entire job for you, so while you have a virtual hosting server for your sites, you can also earn decent cash by offering the system resources that you do not use. The reseller and web hosting Control Panel GUIs can be combined with invoicing and customer support software tools 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 client support service. As you are granted complete server root access to the virtual web hosting server, you will be able to activate any server-side software or libraries that your customers may need for their websites, so you will have an edge over hosting distributors that deliver shared hosting services and cannot install such applications.
