Up till a couple of years ago, the only way to get an advanced web hosting package was to order a dedicated server. As a consequence of recent software improvements, virtual web hosting servers have been introduced and they've swiftly evolved into one of the most commonly used web hosting platforms as they offer first-rate performance at a quite reasonable price. Also known as a virtual private servers or a virtual dedicated server, this web hosting server is the optimal solution for high resource-consuming web pages.

Virtual Private Servers Hosting - Is It Better Than Shared Server Hosting?

A few virtual servers are created on a physical server, utilizing its system resources. Each virtual private server behaves exactly like a dedicated server and its system resources are ensured, incl. the central processing unit load, RAM and server space allowances. These resources are much higher than those provided by any shared hosting package, so a Virtual Server is the most sensible option for high resource-requiring script-driven web portals with multiple viewers, or if you wish to host a substantial number of domains in the same user account.

The Virtualization Panel of a Virtual Private Server

Each virtual private server is managed via a Control Panel tool, frequently referred to as a virtualization dashboard. This panel enables you to restart the entire VPS hosting server or different services like HTTP, MySQL, and so on, to keep track of and manage all active tasks and to inspect the consumed and the remaining system resources. As you will obtain full server root privileges, you can also install server-side software that may be necessary for some script-based platforms to operate, explore detailed traffic stats and history of all the services running on the virtual private servers. One of the best qualities of the virtualization interface is that you can utilize it to effortlessly install a Control Panel on the virtual private web hosting server.

The Control Panel of a Virtual Private Servers

There are many different hosting Control Panels, but a couple of them are more popular than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you purchase a virtual private servers, you can make use of the hosting Control Panel that the hosting plans provider is providing, or you can activate your own. This GUI will permit you to administer domain names, files, databases, File Transfer Protocol accounts, electronic mails and everything related to your web hosting 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 order a virtual private servers. More seasoned customers can access the virtual private web server through a Secure Shell client too.

Gain Revenue With Your Virtual Server

One of the advantages of maintaining a Virtual Server is that certain hosting Control Panel tools 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 entire job on your behalf, so while you have a private virtual web hosting server for your web sites, you can also make decent money by selling the resources that you do not use. The reseller and hosting CP tools can be combined with billing and customer support software platforms like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which permits you to set up separate packages, to charge your clients directly and to provide a 24x7 support service. As you gain full root access to the virtual hosting server, you will be able to install any server-side software or libraries that your clients may demand for their web sites, so you will have supremacy over web hosting companies that distribute shared hosting services and cannot install such software applications.
