What are VPSs?

A VPS is a virtual web hosting server created on a physical web server, which allows everyone to maintain their own web hosting server to accommodate website content. It provides the optimal balance between price and performance, so it is regularly the preferred option for high resource-requiring websites that cannot be hosted on a shared hosting server. As a few persons maintain their own personal VPS accounts on the very same physical server, all resources can be utilized, which minimizes the cost per capita. Every VPS comes with full root privileges, which enables customers to install any software or script libraries that may be demanded for given apps to operate.

The positive side of possessing a VPS is that it is entirely independent of the other accounts on the physical server. It can be rebooted, updated, and can even come with a different OS than those of the rest of the virtual private web server hosting accounts on that physical machine. It is actually like a dedicated web server, but a virtual private web server costs just a fraction of the price of a dedicated hosting machine.

Limitations of the VPS Hosting Solution

Each VPS plan involves some storage space, bandwidth and central processing unit load quotas. The Virtual Server companies are providing various packages so each client can obtain the most relevant plan for their requirements. A less advanced private virtual web hosting server may be used to keep one single web site, whereas a more advanced one would be a more applicable solution for accommodating a bunch of sites and not bothering about resources. We are one of the top web hosting distributors and we are offering a variety of VPS plans.

Hosting CP Variants: Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin, etc.

The textual, visual and aural content on a virtual private web hosting server is managed via a hosting CP just like any other shared web hosting plan. This may be the Control Panel that the hosting service firm is offering, or any other web hosting CP that the user avails of - Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, H-Sphere, etc. All files, e-mail accounts, databases and domains can be handled through the website hosting Control Panel, and given user interfaces also offer a number of levels of administration - master reseller, reseller, user, etc. This unlocks lots of possibilities for business as the private virtual server possessors can resell web hosting plans or have resellers of their own. More skillful persons can handle everything via a Secure Shell client as well.

VPS Hosting - a Cheap and Steady Service

A key feature of the VPS plan are the so-called "burstable" resources. If a particular web site is creating substantial server load or exceeds the quota at some stage, more resources are assigned to this private virtual web server on condition that they are present on the physical machine. This vastly helps to maintain all web sites online and renders the virtual server a stable and reliable hosting solution.

A VPS - The Apposite Choice When You Require More System Resources

A Virtual Private Server is a great option for popular web pages that need plenty of resources. It is sufficiently powerful but at the same time it is much more inexpensive than a dedicated web hosting. At handhonline.co.uk we provide a bunch of diverse plans, upgrading from one to the other is also easy and no site transfer will be needed, so there will be no downtime as far as the domain names that are hosted on the VPS server are concerned. The administration is not much different than that of a shared user account, but the performance is much greater in terms of dependability and speed.
