What is VPS hosting?

Up until several years ago, the only means to get a functionality-rich web hosting package was to buy a dedicated server. As a result of recent software application improvements, virtual web hosting servers have been introduced and they've quickly come to be one of the most commonly used web hosting solutions as they offer top performance at a quite reasonable rate. Also popular as a VPS or a virtual dedicated server, this web hosting server is a great solution for resource-requiring websites.

A couple of virtual machines are set up on a physical machine, utilizing its resources. Each VPS works precisely like a dedicated web server and its system resources are ensured, including the CPU usage, RAM memory and hard disk storage space quotas. These system resources are much higher than those supplied by any shared hosting package, so a Virtual Server is the finest option for resource-demanding script-driven websites with many viewers, or if you desire to host a huge amount of domains in one and the same account.

The Virtualization Backend of a VPS Web Server

Each VPS is managed via a CP interface, regularly referred to as a virtualization interface. This GUI allows you to reboot the entire virtual private web hosting server or various services such as HTTP, MySQL, etc., to monitor and administer all active programs and to keep an eye on the used up and the available resources. As you will obtain full root access, you can also activate server-side applications that may be needed for particular script-based platforms to operate, review detailed traffic stats and history of all the tasks running on the VPS. One of the greatest strengths of the virtualization tool is that you can utilize it to easily activate a hosting Control Panel on the VPS hosting server.

The Control Panel of a VPS

There are many separate hosting Control Panels, but a few 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 CP that the provider is offering, or you can install your own. This tool will enable you to handle domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, e-mails and everything related to your web hosting user account. Managing 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 purchase a VPS. More skilled users can access the virtual private hosting server via an SSH connection as well.

Make Revenue With Your VPS

One of the positive aspects of running a VPS is that certain web hosting Control Panel user interfaces include a reseller level of administration, so you can create and sell hosting plans. You can even create reseller accounts and have other persons carry out the entire job for you, so while you have a Virtual Private Server for your web sites, you can also generate decent profit by selling the system resources that you do not use. The reseller and hosting CP GUIs can be integrated with billing and client support software platforms like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which permits you to set up different plans, to charge your customers directly and to provide a 24-7 customer support service. As you are given root access to the VPS web server, you will be able to activate any server-side software applications or libraries that your customers may need for their websites, so you will have supremacy over hosting providers that offer shared hosting services and cannot install such applications.
