Up till a few years ago, the only means to obtain a powerful website hosting plan was to buy a dedicated server. As a result of latter-day software application developments, virtual servers have been brought in and they've quickly turned into one of the most commonly used web hosting platforms as they offer fantastic performance at a very moderate price. Also popular as a VPS hosting or a virtual dedicated server, this web hosting server is the optimal platform for resource-absorbing web portals.

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

Several virtual machines are set up on a physical machine, utilizing its resources. Each virtual private server behaves precisely like a dedicated server and its system resources are guaranteed, incl. the CPU usage, RAM memory and hard disk storage quotas. These system resources are much higher than those delivered by any shared hosting plan, so a Virtual Server is the most appropriate choice for high resource-consuming script-powered online portals with lots of viewers, or if you want to host an immense quantity of domains in one and the very same account.

The Virtualization Panel of a Private Virtual Web Server

Each virtual private server is handled through a Control Panel tool, frequently referenced as a virtualization dashboard. This user interface allows you to reboot the entire virtual server or separate services like HTTP, MySQL, etc., to supervise and manage all active programs and to keep an eye on the used up and the unused resources. As you will get root privileges, you can also activate server-side software applications that may be demanded for given script-powered platforms to perform, examine comprehensive bandwidth stats and history of all the processes running on the VPS hosting. One of the best qualities of the virtualization dashboard is that you can use it to easily install a Control Panel on the virtual private web server.

The Hosting Control Panel of a VPS Hosting

There are plenty of separate web hosting CPs, but several of them are more famous than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you order a VPS hosting, you can use the hosting Control Panel that the hosting corporation is offering, or you can activate your own. This interface will allow you to manage domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, electronic mail accounts and everything that has to do with your web hosting account. Administering a Virtual Server account is not different from managing a shared account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there won't be anything unfamiliar to you if you buy a VPS hosting. More proficient users can access the virtual hosting server via an SSH client as well.

Gain Revenue With Your Virtual Private Hosting Server

One of the positive aspects of administering a Virtual Private Hosting Server is that specific web hosting CP interfaces include a reseller admin level, so you can create and sell hosting plans. You can even create reseller accounts and have other people do the whole task on your behalf, so while you have a virtual web server for your sites, you can also generate good profit by offering the system resources that you do not use. The reseller and hosting CP user interfaces can be combined with invoicing and customer support tools such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which enables you to set up different packages, to bill your customers directly and to provide a 24/7/365 client support service. As you gain root-level access to the virtual private web server, you will be able to activate any server-side software or libraries that your customers may require for their web sites, so you will have supremacy over hosting distributors that offer shared hosting services and cannot install such software.
