Up till a few years ago, the sole means to get a feature-rich website hosting package was to buy a dedicated server. As a result of recent software improvements, virtual web servers have been introduced and they've quickly emerged as one of the most commonly used web hosting solutions as they offer terrific performance at a very affordable rate. Also popular as a VPS hosting or a virtual dedicated web server, this web hosting server is a perfect platform for heavy resource-swallowing sites.

VPS Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Hosting?

A couple of virtual machines are set up on a physical server, utilizing its resources. Each virtual private server behaves exactly like a dedicated hosting server and its resources are ensured, including the CPU load, 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 prudent choice for high resource-swallowing script-driven web sites with lots of visitors, or if you wish to host a big number of domains in one and the very same account.

The Virtualization Interface of a VPS

Each virtual private server is handled via a Control Panel user interface, regularly referenced as a virtualization panel. This interface allows you to reboot the whole virtual web server or individual services like HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to check and administer all active processes and to keep an eye on the consumed and the free system resources. As you will obtain root-level access, you can also install server-side apps that may be required for given script-based platforms to function, review elaborate bandwidth statistics and history of all the processes running on the VPS hosting. One of the best features of the virtualization dashboard is that you can use it to quickly install a hosting CP on the private virtual web server.

The Control Panel of a VPS Hosting

There are plenty of different web hosting CPs, but several of them are more commonly used than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you purchase a VPS hosting, you can utilize the web hosting Control Panel that the hosting corporation is offering, or you can activate your own. This tool will permit you to handle domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, e-mail addresses and everything related to your web hosting account. Administering a Virtual Server account is not different from administering 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 hosting. More accomplished clients can access the private virtual web server via an SSH terminal as well.

Earn Profit With Your VPS

One of the upsides of running a VPS is that given Control Panel tools include a reseller administration level, so you can set up and sell hosting plans. You can even set up reseller accounts and have other people carry out the entire task on your behalf, so while you have a virtual private web server for your websites, you can also earn decent profit by selling the resources that you do not use. The reseller and hosting Control Panel tools can be combined with invoicing and client support tools such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which enables you to create different plans, to bill your customers directly and to offer a 24/7 customer support service. As you gain complete root-level access to the private virtual server, you will be able to activate any server-side apps or libraries that your clients may demand for their websites, so you will have an advantage over hosting firms that offer shared hosting services and cannot activate such apps.
