A small amount of virtual servers are set up on a physical server, using its resources. Each virtual private server works exactly like a dedicated web hosting server and its system resources are guaranteed, incl. the CPU usage, memory and server space quotas. These system resources are much higher than those supplied by any shared hosting package, so a Virtual Server is the most reasonable option for content-heavy script-based web pages with a lot of visitors, or if you would like to host a huge number of domains in the very same user account.

The Virtualization Backend of a Virtual Private Web Hosting Server

Each virtual private server is handled through a CP interface, frequently referenced as a virtualization interface. This GUI permits you to reboot the whole private virtual server or various services such as HTTP, MySQL, etc., to monitor and administer all active programs and to inspect the consumed and the unused system resources. As you will obtain root privileges, you can also activate server-side software applications that may be needed for given script-driven platforms to perform, observe comprehensive monthly traffic stats and history of all the services running on the VPS web hosting. One of the best benefits of the virtualization console is that you can use it to quickly activate a hosting CP on the private virtual server.

The Control Panel of a VPS Web Hosting

There are a lot of diverse hosting Control Panels, but some of them are more popular than the others - Hepsia, cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin. If you buy a VPS web hosting, you can avail of the hosting CP that the hosting company is providing, or you can activate your own. This interface will permit you to handle domain names, files, databases, FTP accounts, mailbox accounts and everything that has to do with your web hosting user account. Managing a Virtual Server account is not different from managing a shared web hosting account, so if you have any experience with the latter, there won't be anything new for you if you order a VPS web hosting. More capable users can access the Virtual Private Server via a Secure Shell terminal as well.

Earn Cash With Your VPS

One of the positive aspects of managing a VPS is that certain CP user interfaces offer a reseller administrator level, so you can set up and sell hosting plans. You can even create reseller accounts and have other individuals do all the work for you, so while you have a virtual hosting server for your sites, you can also generate decent revenue by offering the system resources that you do not use. The reseller and web hosting CP GUIs can be combined with invoicing and support software solutions like WHMCS, AWBS or ClientExec, which allows you to set up different packages, to charge your customers directly and to provide a 24/7 support service. As you are provided with full root-level access to the VPS web server, you will be able to install any server-side software or libraries that your customers may demand for their sites, so you will have superiority over web hosting suppliers that offer shared hosting services and cannot activate such software.
