Up till a couple of years ago, the sole way to get a powerful hosting package was to buy a dedicated server. As a consequence of latter-day software app improvements, virtual servers have been brought in and they've swiftly become one of the most famous web hosting solutions as they offer topflight performance at a quite reasonable rate. Also known as a VPS or a virtual dedicated server, this hosting server is a perfect platform for resource-swallowing web pages.

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

A small number of virtual machines are set up on a physical machine, using its resources. Each VPS performs precisely like a dedicated server and its system resources are ensured, including the central processing unit usage, RAM memory and disk storage quotas. These resources are much higher than those supplied by any shared hosting package, so a Virtual Server is the most excellent option for high resource-consuming script-powered websites with a lot of visitors, or if you desire to host a large amount of domains in the same account.

The Virtualization Interface of a Virtual Private Server

Each VPS is handled via a Control Panel user interface, often referenced as a virtualization dashboard. This tool enables you to restart the whole VPS or individual services like HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to supervise and administer all active processes and to inspect the used up and the free resources. As you will get complete server root access, you can also activate server-side applications that may be required for given script-powered platforms to perform, examine exhaustive web traffic stats and history of all the tasks running on the VPS. One of the best attributes of the virtualization dashboard is that you can utilize it to effortlessly activate a hosting CP on the private virtual web server.

The Web Hosting Control Panel of a VPS

There are plenty of diverse Control Panels, but a few of them are more famous than the rest - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you purchase a VPS, you can use the Control Panel that the web hosting provider is providing, or you can install your own. This GUI will permit you to handle domain names, files, databases, FTP accounts, mail aliases and everything related to your web hosting user account. Managing a Virtual Server account is not different from administering a shared web hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there will be nothing new for you if you get a VPS. More skillful users can access the virtual web hosting server through an SSH session as well.

Make Profit With Your VPS Web Server

One of the upsides of handling a VPS Web Server is that particular web hosting Control Panel tools include a reseller administrator level, so you can set up 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 virtual server for your websites, you can also generate decent cash by offering the resources that you do not utilize. The reseller and hosting Control Panel interfaces can be combined with billing and support software platforms such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which allows you to set up separate packages, to charge your clients directly and to provide a 24/7 support service. As you are provided with full root-level access to the VPS hosting server, you will be able to install any server-side software or libraries that your clients may need for their sites, so you will have supremacy over hosting suppliers that deliver shared hosting services and cannot activate such applications.
