Up until a few years ago, the only way to get an advanced web hosting plan was to purchase a dedicated server. As a consequence of recent software developments, virtual servers have been brought in and they've quickly turned into one of the most popular web hosting platforms as they offer hi-end performance at a very reasonable rate. Also popular as a VPS hosting or a virtual dedicated web server, this web hosting server is an excellent solution for heavy resource-swallowing web pages.

VPS Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Hosting?

A small number of virtual machines are created on a physical server, utilizing its resources. Each virtual private server works precisely like a dedicated server and its system resources are ensured, incl. the CPU load, memory and server storage space allowances. These system resources are much higher than those offered by any shared hosting package, so a Virtual Server is the wisest option for resource-devouring script-based online portals with plenty of visitors, or if you would like to host a substantial amount of domains in the same account.

The Virtualization Dashboard of a VPS Server

Each virtual private server is handled via a Control Panel GUI, regularly referred to as a virtualization panel. This interface permits you to restart the whole virtual web hosting server or various services like HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to check and administer all running programs and to examine the used up and the available system resources. As you will get full server root privileges, you can also install server-side software applications that may be demanded for specific script-powered platforms to function, explore exhaustive monthly bandwidth statistics and history of all the tasks running on the VPS hosting. One of the best qualities of the virtualization panel is that you can utilize it to effortlessly install a web hosting CP on the VPS server.

The Web Hosting CP of a VPS Hosting

There are a lot of separate web hosting Control Panels, but a few of them are more famous than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you order a VPS hosting, you can use the web hosting Control Panel that the web hosting firm is offering, or you can activate your own. This tool will enable you to manage domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, electronic mail aliases and everything that has to do with your web hosting user account. Administering a Virtual Server account is not different from administering a shared web hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there won't be anything unfamiliar to you if you purchase a VPS hosting. More proficient users can access the VPS through a Secure Shell connection as well.

Make Cash With Your Private Virtual Web Server

One of the advantages of having a Private Virtual Web Server is that given hosting Control Panel tools include a reseller level of administration, so you can set up and sell hosting plans. You can even create reseller accounts and have other individuals do the whole job for you, so while you have a private virtual server for your websites, you can also generate good profit by offering the resources that you do not utilize. The reseller and web hosting Control Panel user interfaces can be combined with invoicing and customer support tools like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which permits you to create different packages, to bill your customers directly and to provide a 24x7x365 support service. As you gain complete root-level access to the virtual server, you will be able to activate any server-side software apps or libraries that your customers may need for their sites, so you will have an advantage over service providers that distribute shared hosting services and cannot activate such applications.
