Virtual Private Servers Hosting

A VPS is a virtual machine created on a physical server that allows users to have their own server to host web content. It offers the best balance between price and performance, so it is often the preferred choice for resource-demanding websites that cannot be accommodated on a shared hosting platform. Since several people have their own VPS on the same machine, all system resources can be used, which minimizes the cost per person. Each VPS comes with full root access that allows users to install any software or script libraries that may be needed for certain web applications to run.
The advantage of having a VPS is that it is completely autonomous from the other accounts on the server. It can be rebooted, updated, and can even come with a different Operating System from those of the other VPS accounts on that machine. It is virtually like a dedicated server, but a VPS costs just a fraction of the price of dedicated hosting.
Each VPS package comes with certain disk space, monthly traffic and CPU load limits. The hosting providers are offering different packages so each customer can select the best package based on their needs. A less powerful VPS may be used to host a single website, while a more powerful one would be the better solution for hosting several websites and not worrying about system resources. NTCHosting.com is one of the companies that are offering such a variety of packages.
The web content on a VPS is managed through a Control Panel just as any other shared web hosting account. This may be the Control Panel that the provider is offering, or any other Control Panel that the client installs - Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, H-Sphere, etc. All files, emails, databases and domain names can be managed through the Control Panel, and some panels also offer several levels of administration - master reseller, reseller, user, etc. This opens a lot of opportunities for business as the VPS owners can resell hosting or have resellers of their own. For more advanced users, everything can be managed through a Secure Shell console as well.
All necessary web server, FTP, MySQL, etc. software is installed on the VPS by default, so there is no need to worry about that. Software updates, installations, rebooting procedures, etc. are all carried out through a virtualization panel that allows the user to manage the VPS through a graphic interface, which makes the administration of a VPS easier and more intuitive. A good example for such a tool is Parallels Virtuozzo Containers. The administration panel is also used to create and restore backups, thus saving the time you'd otherwise have had to spend waiting for the hosting provider's support team to do these tasks.
An important feature of the VPS package is the so-called "burstable" resources. If the load of a given website is high and reaches the VPS limits at a certain point, additional resources are allocated to this VPS as long as they are available on the physical server. This greatly helps to keep all websites up and running and makes the VPS a stable and reliable hosting solution.
A Virtual Private Server is an excellent choice for popular websites that need a lot of resources. It is powerful enough but at the same time it is much cheaper than a dedicated server. If the web hosting provider offers several different packages, upgrading from one to the other is also easy and no website migration will be needed, thus there will be no downtime for the websites hosted on the VPS. The management is not much different than that of a shared hosting account, but the performance is much better in terms of stability and speed.
