Semi-Dedicated Server

Virtual Private Servers

To satisfy the demand for low cost, but reliable hosting solutions, providers launched a midway web site hosting environment - the virtual private hosting server. This is a virtual simulation of a hosting server that acts precisely like a dedicated server and is much more powerful than any shared web page hosting package. On the other hand, as lots of accounts are hosted on the very same physical server and each user pays for their account, the price for a private virtual hosting server solution is much lower than the cost of a dedicated server. A small-scale VPS plan is a little more expensive than a hi-end shared web site hosting plan, but its resources surpass by far those of the shared package.

VPS Web Hosting Server Virtualization Panels: OpenVZ and Virtuozzo

Each specific account is isolated from the rest of the accounts on the server, so each Virtual Private Server can run a separate OS and be rebooted autonomously from the other ones. The virtual web servers are managed through a virtualization panel where users can take a look at all running processes and abort or restart them, update server-side software, keep an eye on the used up and the available system resources, and much more. OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are just a couple of examples of software systems used for creating and handling virtual private servers packages. They have diverse requirements in regard to the CPU architecture, the OSs they support, and so on. For instance, Virtuozzo can operate on machines with x86 or AMD64 microprocessors, can be installed on a hosting server running both Windows and Linux Operating Systems, and allows both of these Operating Systems to be activated on the actual VPS hosting servers.

Managed Private Virtual Web Hosting Server Services

The virtualization panel offers the user the power to manage the virtual private web hosting server independently from the hosting provider, sparing you the time you'd have waited for their technical support team to restart a particular service or recover a backup. If the user is not an expert, however, several unlimited web hosting corporations like 'Lonex' have an optional upgrade that encompasses Operating System and software installation and update procedures, VPS server backups, as well as dedicated administrator support and troubleshooting operations. The astonishing thing with 'Lonex.com' is that there are a handful of virtual private web server datacenter locations to choose from: the United States, Great Britain and Australia.

Webspace Hosting CPs for Virtual Private Web Hosting Servers

The domains and the web content on the virtual hosting server are managed through a website hosting CP tool, similar to a regular shared web page hosting plan's. The difference is that with shared hosting packages, users obtain one concrete web hosting Control Panel, while with a Virtual Private Server hosting account, providers normally provide a bunch of hosting CPs to pick from, and the more competent customers can install and use the hosting CP they like. Some virtualization panels support installing a web site hosting Control Panel through them to render things simpler for the client. Unluckily, most web space hosting CPs are not free. Some demand a monthly fee (cPanel demands $13 USD/month, have a glimpse at BuycPanel.com), while others ask for a license fee (DirectAdmin). There are other web site hosting CPs that limit the amount of the hosted domains (Plesk). While we discuss web hosting Control Panel-supplied VPSs, it's good to state that, by default, all virtual private web server plans provided by 'Lonex.com' ship with the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel. The latter includes unlimited hosted domain name quotas. Hepsia is obtainable at no further licence cost, thus the monthly cost of the private virtual server package chosen by the user does not fluctuate. What's more, Hepsia perhaps offers the best Domain Name Manager on the webspace hosting Control Panel market.

CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Powered VPS Web Server Hosting Accounts

The website hosting Control Panel user interface enables users to handle domain names, files, databases, FTP and e-mail address accounts, to keep track of web traffic and load logs and to keep track of comprehensive stats concerning the utilized and the free resources. Akin with the virtualization consoles, the hosting Control Panels are intended to work under a particular Operating System. For instance, cPanel, which is one of the most widespread web page hosting CPs, operates only under Linux CentOS, whereas Enkompass, which is invented by the very same designer, runs only under Windows. Other web page hosting Control Panels like Plesk and Hepsia are compatible with several platforms. Hepsia supports the CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu Linux distributions. The advantage of given website hosting Control Panels over others is that they include different control levels - administrator, reseller and customer. Each level has access to a separate set of specs controlling the levels underneath, so it is easy to establish a reseller website and commence making money by offering website hosting accounts to other people. As customers will observe what percentage of the system resources is utilized, but will not be able to view the actual figures, even a small-size virtual private web server hosting package will suffice to set up a small-size web site hosting corporation and gain cash.

The Private Virtual Web Hosting Server: an Autonomous, Moderately Priced Solution

A private virtual server is a relatively cheap web hosting solution, but it is powerful enough to support web pages such as a very popular web store or a big company web page. As its administration is easy, it is the preferred selection of both beginners and advanced users.
