A dedicated hosting environment is one which is isolated from other users, whether this is in a virtual environment or a physical environment. The design of a dedicated hosting environment is done to ensure that the actions of other users in their respective hosting environments aren’t able to impact on the performance of your website or hosting environment. Dedicated hosting environments are important for businesses looking to establish a web presence where reliability and security need to be abundant so that guarantees with regards to the safety and security of customer data can be provided.

Web Hosting Dedicated

Dedicated servers are the best example of dedicated hosting environments, primarily because you have full use of the hardware that forms your dedicated server and will only have to share this with someone else if you explicitly wish to.

Linux VPS Hosting

November 4th, 2010 Comments off

If you are using dedicated hosting for the first time then your chosen form of web hosting is likely to be a Linux VPS server because it provides you with a low cost web hosting package that can provide you with the necessary resources. Linux VPS servers are fairly low cost because Linux is an open source operating system meaning that you don’t have to pay for a license to use the operating system, and the lower the resources that you are purchasing, the cheaper your Linux VPS server is going to be. A Linux VPS server can still provide you with a fully fledged dedicated hosting environment when using a cheap VPS server, although you will be limited with as to what you are able to use your Linux VPS server for if you have fairly low resource assignments. You can add resources as you need with a Linux VPS server meaning that if you need extra RAM, disk space or bandwidth then you can purchase the additional amount that you require from your web hosting company at an extra cost. Other optional extras available with most Linux VPS servers include control panels such as cPanel and Webmin.

VPS Server Hosting

August 31st, 2010 Comments off

VPS server hosting is seen as the form of web hosting that fills the gap between reseller web hosting and dedicated server hosting in terms of the features and resources that each other form of web hosting can offer. A VPS server is effectively a virtual machine hosted on a physical machine as the resources that your VPS server uses are in fact those of the physical machine, albeit with a certain amount of the host machine’s resources being guaranteed directly to your VPS server. Like dedicated server hosting, you have a choice of operating system when ordering a VPS server in most cases meaning that you can customize your VPS server to meet your requirements exactly. Virtuozzo is the main virtualization application used by web hosting providers to allow them to offer their VPS server hosting services, although many are increasingly moving over to Hyper-V based systems so that they are able to offer Windows Server 2008 VPS hosting services – Linux VPS hosting is still offered using Virtuozzo. The dedicated web hosting environment offered by a VPS server will be a lot easier to manage than that offered by a dedicated server, simply because if something goes wrong then it is fairly easy to reload the operating system in a virtual hosting environment.

Get a Basic Understanding of VPS Hosting and Shared Web Hosting.

August 10th, 2009 Comments off

Shared and VPS hosting have some things in common. It is important to understand the difference between the two to choos an appropriate solution that most suits your website requirements.

First of all let us take an overview of Shared Hosting and VPS Hosting.

Shared Server-Hosting Shared Web Hosting : Shared Web Hosting is the most basic type of web hosting solution. Shared hosting packages are cheap and affordable in terms of pricing. This type of hosting is more preferred by small websites that require less resources. In this, a physical server is shared by multiple users and websites. This being affordable, is more preferred by users as the cost of the server and its resources are shared by multiple users. Shared web hosting can sometimes not suit all types of websites, as different websites require different amounts of resources such as bandwidth and disk space. There may be websites that receive high traffic, hence consume bandwidth that is greater than what is offered with a shared hosting package. In such cases one needs to opt for a higher plan such as VPS Hosting or a Dedicated Server Hosting plan.

To start with, you may choose a Shared Web Hosting package and later upgrade to a VPS or Dedicated hosting plan as per the requirements of your website/s. Many webhosting providers offer flexible upgrade options and you can switch from one plan to another with less waste of efforts, keeping the website up and running over the web without any downtime.

The only drawback of shared hosting is that you do not get much privileges with it.


VPS Hosting or Virtual Private Server Hosting: A VPS is the next option to Shared Hosting in terms of resources and privileges. Basically, VPS shares a similar concept with Shared Hosting, but there is are few major differences between the two i.e. resources and privileges. VPS Hosting Similar to a shared plan, multiple VPS accounts are created on a physical server using a virtualization technology. With a VPS you get better resources such as bandwidth and diskspace and you have better control over the server. You get complete admin access to the server, which means you can create, modify, delete ,install or uninstall applications of your choice, which is not possible on a shared server. VPS hosting plans too are affordable. With it you get to experience a dedicated like environment. The only difference is the resources and price. Each client using a virtual server is given a fixed share of a server.

A VPS is more preferred than shared hosting or Dedicated server hosting plan. The reason because, shared hosting packages offer less resources, security and privileges whereas a dedicated server is more expensive and the resources available with it are sometimes much more than what is required. On a VPS there not much restrictions set which isn’t the case with a shared hosting server plus you have almost similar privileges as that of a dedicated server. As said earlier with a shared hosting plan you do not have much privileges whereas with a VPS hosting plan, you get complete root or administrator access of the server. You have the privilege to configure your own applications and softwares.

Many reputed web hosting service providers offer their services for both the platforms ie. Windows VPS Hosting as well as Linux VPS Hosting. They also offer flexible upgrade or downgrade options. packages offered by almost all the web hosting providers now-a-days. A VPS is created using one of the different virtualization applications. Virtuozzo is one such application that is widely used and preferred. With a VPS hosting solution, you can get to Control Panel Logo experience a dedicated like environment. It ,means with a VPS you get complete root/admin. access to the server with a control panel to manage the account. Usually, a DotNet panel or Plesk is more preferred to manage a Windows Hosting account whereas to manage a Linux Hosting account, cPanel control panel is widely preferred. The root or admin access allows you to install, create, uninstall, etc, any application or software onto your server similar to a Dedicated Server. In short you have the privilege to maintain and manage the server on your own. In such scenario, the web hosting provider takes care of the security of the node.
Limited number of VPS accounts are created on a physical server, using any of the virtualization softwares.

Benefits of using a Virtual Private Server Hosting

Any package lower than a VPS such as shared hosting or Reseller Hosting, do not offer privileges such as root/admin access. You get limited VPS Host.co.in resources and there are multiple accounts set-up on a physical server, this gives the chance of overselling, which gradually hampers the performance of the website/s. On the other hand a dedicated server is bit more expensive than a VPS. A dedicated server is suitable for large businesses and enterprises. With a VPS you can get almost the same privileges as that of a Dedicated Server. You would get similar reliability with a VPS as that of a Dedicated Server but with a cheaper price. You get guaranteed resources with a VPS with better security than that of the other lower hosting packages. You can even apply your own security measures to the VPS as you have complete control over the server.

Security: In comparison to other lower hosting packages a VPS is more secure. Most of the users upgrade their plans to a VPS due to security factor. A VPS is pretty much secure and impossible for hackers and attackers to breach in.
Dedicated Server Like Environment: Similar to a dedicated server hosting environment, you get complete admin access to the server. This privilege allows you to use maximum resources of the server.
Reliability: Reliability is one of the most important factor, that needs to be HyperV-VPS-Hosting considered while choosing a web hosting package. VPS proves itself to be worthy of fulfilling this requirement. A VPS has its own dedicated resources. With the addition of all new technology called the Hyper V Hosting , Windows users get more reliability with a VPS.
The VPS Server Hosting also has some demerits of its own. This is because VPS’s are created on a physical server. You share its resources with other user accounts, hence limiting you to use certain applications such as Java components. It is similar to a shared hosting, which can hamper the server stability. It is always suggested that when your website/s become popular, you must upgrade from a VPS hosting package to a Dedicated Server to get the utmost hosting experience.

What is VPS?

July 3rd, 2009 Comments off

A virtual private server (VPS, also referred to as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) is a method of partitioning a physical server computer into multiple servers such that each has the appearance and capabilities of running on its own dedicated server. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system, and each server can be independently rebooted.

Total two kinds of virtualizations way one is software and second is hardware based.

In software based virtualization, the virtual machines share the same kernel and use the resources from main server. This type of virtualization mostly use in web hosting business.
There are plenty virtualization software such as Xen, Virtuozzo, Vserver, and OpenVZ (which is the open source and development version of Parallels Virtuozzo Containers).

In hardware based virtualization, the virtualization mechanism partitions the real hardware resources. In typical implementations, no burst and/or real-time quota modification is possible; the limits are hard and can only be modified by restarting a virtual machine instance.
It is more commonly used in enterprise/commercial deployments
Examples include Microsoft Virtual Server, VMware ESX Server, and Xen.
