How Do Virtual Private Servers Function?

Up until a few years ago, the sole way to get a feature-rich website hosting plan was to purchase a dedicated server. As a result of recent software app improvements, virtual web servers have been brought in and they've swiftly emerged as one of the most popular web hosting solutions as they offer superb performance at a very affordable rate. Also famous as a virtual private servers or a virtual dedicated web server, this hosting server is a great solution for busy web portals.

A few virtual servers are created on a physical server, using its resources. Each virtual private server performs precisely like a dedicated web server and its resources are guaranteed, incl. the central processing unit usage, RAM and hard disk storage allowances. These system resources are much higher than those offered by any shared hosting package, so a Virtual Server is the most suitable option for content-heavy script-driven online portals with multiple visitors, or if you want to host a huge number of domains in one and the same account.

The Virtualization Panel of a Virtual Private Web Server

Each virtual private server is managed via a CP GUI, regularly referred to as a virtualization interface. This GUI enables you to reboot the whole virtual web hosting server or individual services such as HTTP, MySQL, etc., to keep track of and manage all running processes and to check the used up and the unused system resources. As you will have complete server root access, you can also activate server-side applications that may be demanded for particular script-driven platforms to function, observe exhaustive traffic stats and history of all the processes running on the virtual private servers. One of the greatest attributes of the virtualization backend is that you can use it to easily install a web hosting CP on the VPS server.

The Hosting CP of a Virtual Private Servers

There are a lot of separate hosting Control Panels, but several of them are more commonly used than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you order a virtual private servers, you can make use of the hosting CP that the hosting company is providing, or you can install your own. This interface will permit you to handle domain names, files, databases, FTP accounts, mail aliases and everything related to your web hosting account. Managing a Virtual Server account is not different from administering a shared web hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there will be nothing unfamiliar to you if you purchase a virtual private servers. More tech-savvy users can access the virtual server via a Secure Shell terminal as well.

Make Revenue With Your Private Virtual Server

One of the advantages of keeping a Private Virtual Server is that certain CP interfaces include a reseller admin level, so you can set up and sell hosting plans. You can even set up reseller accounts and have other individuals do the entire job for you, so while you have a Virtual Private Server for your sites, you can also generate decent cash by offering the resources that you do not use. The reseller and hosting CP user interfaces can be integrated with billing and customer support software tools such as WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which enables you to create separate packages, to charge your customers directly and to offer a 24/7 client support service. As you get complete server root access to the virtual private hosting server, you will be able to activate any server-side software applications or libraries that your clients may demand for their sites, so you will have an edge over companies that offer shared hosting services and cannot install such software apps.
