What are VPSs?

A VPS is a private virtual hosting server configured on a physical web hosting server, which allows clients to acquire their own web server to accommodate website content. It provides the best balance between price and performance, so it is often the preferred option for heavy resource-demanding web sites that cannot be accommodated on a shared hosting server. As several people have their own VPS accounts on the very same machine, all resources can be utilized, which diminishes the cost per person. Every VPS comes with root access, which enables customers to activate any software or script libraries that may be demanded for given web apps to function.

The advantage of having a VPS is that it is thoroughly autonomous from the other virtual server hosting accounts on the physical machine. It can be restarted, updated, and can even come with a different Operating System than those of the remaining private virtual server hosting accounts on that physical server. It is virtually like a dedicated hosting server, but a virtual private hosting server costs just a fraction of the price of a dedicated hosting server.

Restrictions of the VPS Hosting Service

Each VPS account involves some hard disk storage space, monthly traffic and central processing unit usage quotas. The Virtual Server service providers are distributing diverse packages so each client can get the most suitable package for their demands. A less powerful private virtual server may be used to accommodate one single web site, whereas a more powerful one would be a better solution for accommodating a set of websites and not worrying about system resources. We are among the top web hosting corporations and we are supplying a bouquet of VPS packages.

web hosting Control Panel Alternatives: Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin, and so on

The textual, visual and aural content on a VPS is managed through a web hosting Control Panel just as any other shared web hosting package. This may be the web hosting CP that the hosting service firm is providing, or any other website hosting CP that the customer avails of - Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, H-Sphere, etc. All website files, email mailboxes, databases and domains can be managed via the Control Panel, and some user interfaces also offer a couple of management levels - master reseller, reseller, user, etc. This presents lots of opportunities for business as the VPS web server owners can resell web hosting plans or have resellers of their own. More advanced users can administer everything via a Secure Shell console too.

VPS Hosting - a Cut-Price and Steady Solution

An essential feature of the VPS package are the so-called "burstable" system resources. If a particular web site is generating huge server load or approaches the quota at a certain moment, supplementary resources are allotted to this VPS server as long as they are present on the physical server. This greatly helps to keep all sites online and renders the private virtual web server a stable and reliable hosting platform.

A VPS - The Obvious Choice When You Demand More Features

A virtual server is an accurate choice for well known web portals that demand plenty of system resources. It is powerful enough but simultaneously it is much more affordable than a dedicated server hosting. At Steele Design Studio limited we supply a set of different plans, upgrading from one to the other is also easy and no web site migration will be needed, hence there will be no downtime 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 hosting user account, but the performance is much greater when it comes to stability and speed.
