What is a Virtual Server?

Up until a couple of years ago, the sole way to obtain an advanced hosting plan was to buy a dedicated server. As a result of latter-day software app improvements, virtual web hosting servers have been introduced and they've quickly become one of the most widely used hosting solutions as they offer astonishing performance at a quite low rate. Also known as a virtual private web server or a virtual dedicated server, this web hosting server is a great solution for high resource-devouring websites.

Virtual Server Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Hosting?

A small quantity of virtual servers are set up on a physical server, utilizing its resources. Each VPS hosting server works exactly like a dedicated server and its system resources are guaranteed, incl. the CPU usage, RAM and storage space quotas. These resources are much higher than those provided by any shared hosting package, so a Virtual Private Server web hosting plan is the most perfect choice for resource-devouring script-driven web portals with a lot of viewers, or if you wish to host a big amount of domains in one and the same user account.

The Virtualization Dashboard of a Virtual Private Server

Each VPS is managed through a Control Panel user interface, often referred to as a virtualization interface. This panel enables you to reboot the entire VPS hosting server or various services such as HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to check and manage all active processes and to keep track of the used up and the remaining system resources. As you will obtain full root privileges, you can also activate server-side applications that may be necessary for specific script-powered platforms to operate, review exhaustive web traffic stats and history of all the services running on the virtual server. One of the greatest advantages of the virtualization tool is that you can use it to effortlessly activate a web hosting CP on the virtual hosting server.

The CP of a Virtual Private Server

There are a lot of diverse hosting CPs, but some of them are more popular than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you buy a virtual private hosting server, you can make use of the web hosting Control Panel that the web hosting packages provider is offering, or you can install your own. This user interface will allow you to handle domain names, files, databases, FTP accounts, email addresses and everything that has to do with your hosting account. Managing a virtual private web server hosting account is not different from managing a shared website hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there won't be anything new for you if you purchase a VPS web hosting server. More skillful clients can access the virtual private web server via a Secure Shell terminal too.

Generate Revenue With Your VPS

One of the positive aspects of maintaining a VPS hosting server is that some Control Panel GUIs offer a reseller level of administration, so you can set up and sell hosting plans. You can even create reseller accounts and have other persons carry out the entire task on your behalf, so while you have a VPS web server for your sites, you can also gain decent profit by offering the resources that you do not utilize. The reseller and web hosting Control Panel user interfaces can be integrated with invoicing and client support software like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which permits you to set up different packages, to bill your customers directly and to offer a round-the-clock support service. As you have full root access to the server, you will be able to install any server-side applications or libraries that your clients may need for their websites, so you will have supremacy over companies that furnish shared hosting services and cannot install such applications.
