What is VPS hosting?

A VPS is a virtual machine configured on a physical machine, which allows users to acquire their own server to store web content. It provides a perfect balance between price and performance, so it is frequently the preferred option for more resource-swallowing sites that cannot be accommodated on a shared hosting server. As a couple of users keep their own personal VPS accounts on the very same physical machine, all system resources can be availed of, which decreases the charge per user. Every VPS gives complete server root access, which enables customers to install any software programs or script libraries that may be necessary for some web applications to perform.

Strong Sides of the VPS Hosting Solution

The positive side of possessing a VPS is that it is completely independent of the other accounts on the physical machine. It can be rebooted, updated, and can even have a separate Operating System than those of the remaining VPS server hosting accounts on that machine. It is indeed like a dedicated web server, but a virtual web server costs only a fraction of the cost of a dedicated hosting server.

Limitations of the VPS Hosting Solution

Each VPS plan involves certain server storage, web traffic and central processing unit load quotas. The Virtual Server providers are supplying various packages so each customer can pick the most adequate plan for their necessities. A less powerful virtual web server may be used to store a single site, whereas a more powerful one would be a more suitable platform for keeping an array of websites and not worrying about system resources. We are among the top web hosting distributors and we are providing an array of VPS plans.

Web Hosting CP Alternatives: Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin, etc.

The website content on a private virtual server is handled through a web hosting Control Panel just like any other cheap shared hosting plan. This may be the Control Panel that the hosting service firm is supplying, or any other web hosting CP that the customer installs - Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, H-Sphere, etc. All website files, email mailbox accounts, databases and domain names can be managed via the web hosting CP, and certain GUIs also include various levels of administration - master reseller, reseller, user, etc. This presents a lot of options for business as the private virtual hosting server owners can resell web hosting solutions or have resellers of their very own. More experienced persons can manage everything via a Secure Shell terminal too.

VPS Hosting - a Cut-Price and Dependable Service

A powerful feature of the VPS package are the so-called "burstable" resources. If a concrete site is creating substantial server load or nears the quota limit at some time, more system resources are allocated to this virtual private web server provided that they are present on the physical server. This enormously helps to maintain all websites online and makes the private virtual server a stable and reliable hosting platform.

A VPS - The Suitable Choice When You Need More Power

A Virtual Private Server is a perfect choice for well known web sites that demand lots of system resources. It is sufficiently powerful but at the same time it is much more affordable than a dedicated web hosting. At My SmartHost we offer a couple of diverse plans, upgrading from one to the other is also simple and no website transfer will be required, therefore there will be no outage duration as far as the domains that are hosted on the virtual web server are concerned. The administration is not much different than that of a shared account, but the performance is much greater in terms of dependability and speed.
