Virtual Private Servers (VPS) Web Hosting by

(PRWEB) July 29, 2005

A Virtual Private Server (VPS), also referred to as Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS), provides the features of a dedicated server for multiple web hosting customers to share. At first instance it sounds contradictory, how can you have a dedicated server if it is being shared by multiple users? Isn't that a regular shared or virtual hosting environment? It is true that with a Virtual Private Server you still share system resources like the CPU and RAM with other users but the resources are allocated in such a way that you cannot tell that the system has anyone else on it, much like a dedicated server. So resources are usually setup in such a way that each hosting client is only allowed to use an allocated percent, meaning that resources assigned to you will always available to you.

Advantages of Virtual Private Server (VPS) web hosting

Most hosting customers would rather have complete control of their server environments. They don't want to be hosted on a server with tens or hundreds of other users, who could easily use up all the resources or cause the server environment to be unstable. But at the same time most websites don't need a dedicated server. The Virtual Private Server (VPS) alternative is a very attractive niche hosting solution for a fairly large chunk of web hosting clients who would like the stability of a dedicated server but on a smaller scale. With the resources setup in such a way that each person can only use what is allocated to them, your site will be more consistent because it will always have the same amount of access to the CPU, memory, and bandwidth. Virtual Private Servers are also more secure since even as you share the memory and CPU time, you are allocated your own file system. If a website on the server is hacked, the hackers will only have access to that particular file system and would not harm the other websites. A VPS is also much cheaper than a dedicated server.

Disadvantages of Virtual Private Server (VPS) web hosting

Now that you have read the pros of a VPS you are probably thinking that this is the best thing since sliced bread. Well, almost - as is the case with every other type of hosting service, not all providers setup or define Virtual Private Servers, also known as Virtual Dedicated Servers, the exact same way. You must make sure that your provider guarantees that their setup is robust enough to handle operations at a peak level. A trick used by many providers in the reselling and shared space is 'overselling'. What this means is selling more in terms of services than what physically available, with the hope that the end users wouldn't use up all the service that were advertised to them. In the realm of VPS this can be a bit more serious, since at least the expectation is that you are operating in a more robust environment and many clients could be running more intensive applications like message boards or custom web applications. A shortfall of resources could end up causing problems for everyone hosted on such a server, therefore negating the benefits of a VPS. In a shared or dedicated environment you might be able to access more resources during peak or spike periods but since the VPS environment limits you to to your slice of the server resources, it can be a drawback.

As if the technology rich lingo of regular web hosting wasn't enough, the VPS services add a few new wrinkles. Apart from storage space and bandwidth you must also deal with CPU cycles and RAM. So you will see ads for hosting that might include *** MHz and *** MB RAM to go with the usual hosting related features. It is somewhat harder to figure out how much CPU time or RAM you might need, so seek out a hosting provider that will provide you with some benchmarks and the ability to upgrade or downgrade the VPS service if needed.


Allows complete control of your virtual server and its resources

Allows you to run web applications without adversely affecting other clients

Flexible - cheaper than dedicated hosting, more expensive than shared

WebhostingHub (Webhosting Hub) Vs. Fatcow Vs. 1and1: Review and Comparison of Top Web Hosting Companies to See Which Service is Better to Choose from

(PRWEB) December 28, 2013

Comparing WebhostingHub, Fatcow, and 1and1, 1and1is the first choice among the three discussed companies; however, editors at recommend Bluehost as the most recommended web hosting provider. The full reasons that result in Bluehost being rated the most reliable company are available at

WebHosting Hub does not provide a full featured shared hosting package. Its web hosting plan does not support some features like SSH and Ruby on Rails. Some of these features are important, especially SSH (Secure Shell) which provides more security for transferring data because of an encrypted link between client and server computers. Most other web hosts such as Bluehost and Hostgator offer all these features for free. This is why it can't be found any page on WH Hub's website displaying full details of its hosting features as detailed as some other competitors.

Fatcow web hosting package is not rich-featured. It surely makes sense to spend more time before users select an web host provider. Fatcow does not support Ruby on Rails, Perl, Shell (SSH) Access, CronJobs, and some other features. This may cause problems for users when publishing their websites.

1&1 is a web hosting company owned by United Internet, a German Internet company. The company offers domain registration, cloud servers, virtual private servers (VPS), and dedicated servers. In 2006, the company estimated

that it hosted more websites than any other company in Germany.

Reseller Web Hosting

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 8, 2005

Reseller web hosting gives a company an opportunity to purchase large amounts of web space with the intention of packaging it for resale purposes. These web hosting plans, help the ""reseller"" to be a middle-man by allowing him/her to create and brand an image, find customers, and finally, host them on the servers owned by the hosting company.

This business allows the reseller of web hosting to strategically investigate market demands and creatively answer via competitive pricing and package content. Lastly, it is mutually beneficial to the web host, as their servers remain full and profitable.


Besides the entrepreneurial aspects of being able to create a brand and have another company actually provide the web hosting service, reseller hosting has some interesting advantages and features including:

Resellers possess the opportunity to offer other services, to be used in conjunction with web hosting accounts. These include merchant accounts, SSL Certificates, search engine optimization, and domain name registration, which all may provide additional income for the reseller.

Resellers can avoid the expenses involved in maintaining their own in-house web servers, mail servers, DNS servers, backup generators and other network hardware and connections required to host Internet web sites

Resellers are able to respond to increasing numbers of businesses and individuals that are migrating to the web. A rich target demographic exists.

Resellers can purchase packages based on his/her sales forecasts for their use of hard disk space, allowance of data transfer, and a variety of other add-on options.

Web hosting resellers can pursue scalability, where purchases from the web host will directly correlate to growth of one's business.

Web hosting resellers can enjoy high profits compared to initial investments.

Resellers are offered nice multi-level graphical user interfaces that can automate the processes of managing domains and customers, which makes the profession of reseller web hosting more enjoyable.


Clearly, the benefits and advantages of reseller web hosting outweigh the disadvantages. However, the major premise of establishing a business model surrounding another vendor's services may at times be a daunting task.

For example, proper research must be done while selecting a reseller web hosting provider, especially if your brand and total business responsibility depend on a 99.99% uptime. True investigation should be done to ensure that the reseller web hosting company will be in business and will provide the level of service that has been promised to a reseller's customer.

Furthermore, reseller features such as hard disk space and data transfer allowance will need to be monitored so that if these metrics are exceeded, one can easily upgrade plans rather than be hit with hefty ""ala carte"" expenses associated with overage penalties.


Reseller web hosting allows the major benefit of revenue stream generation for the companies who don't have the time, money, or resources to maintain their own servers and data centers. Furthermore, it is a great business opportunity for those who want to create a stand-alone business venture, or for those with other parallel businesses who can take advantage of the chance to sell hosting with their services.

What is the best application of a reseller web hosting service provider?

The major benefit of reseller hosting plans is that the reseller is allowed to purchase web space for a reduced cost. At that time, the reseller can sell the web hosting plan and/or use some of the space for his/her own projects.

The best application and intentions are revenue-based and several schemes exist for this:

1. The reseller can create his or her own brand, market it, and successfully sell and support the web hosting plans. Then the customer can contact the reseller for support.

2. The reseller can just act as an affiliate or an agent for the web hosting company. In this way, the reseller is minimizing liability of service provision, but still reaps benefits of revenue once customers purchase. Customers would contact the original web host for support and future plan modifications.

3. The reseller can be ""hired"" on as a proxy employee. In this model, the reseller can create accounts as an ""employee"" of the original web host.

How to decide:

Generally, just as one would decide on any other web hosting plan, there are some main concerns that exist. Possible resellers should always investigate concerns such as:

1. Having a large enough site and the ability to market through various channels to justify the initial costs involved with the reseller packages.

2. The cost, as compared to other web space vendors with similar plans and packages.

3. Security of Data and equipment of the company that the reseller purchases with.

4. High enough bandwidth for the number of sites and the types of sites the reseller will support.

5. The level of knowledge and integrity of the web hosting provider

6. The service level agreements for technical support and hardware repairs from the web hosting provider

7. The speed of the page downloads and uptime of the company's web pages.

Furthermore, is putting their name on the brand, it is imperative to further investigate hardware. Some of the factors to consider are:

Brand: Brand names of hardware convey reputations for reliability and known support for hardware failures.

CPU's:The speed of the CPU's in the servers will directly correlate with the load speeds of customer websites.

Memory:The reseller web host should allow one to know that the very important commodity of memory will be readily available, as an increased number of sites running various types of code and scripts may prove to be resource and memory intensive.

Mirrored Drives:To offer backups to potential customers, it is good to further investigate backup options. To ensure data redundancy, most hosts can offer drive mirroring, which will keep a synchronized copy of all data for easy backups.

Features specific to reseller hosting can be numerous also. Generally, it is advantageous to look for a reseller plan that offers nice plans with value-driven offerings in disk space, bandwidth, and 24x7 support. One can also look for plans that offer free account setups with no contracts.

Other reseller specific perks to look for include:

Hosting ability:UNLIMITED site hosting will allow one to package their web space any way that they choose for resale purposes.

Private name servers :further reinforces branding and makes you look like a stand-alone network.

Administration software:This software allows the reseller to divide the web space into packages. On the end-user side, it also gives them administration rights to their website.

The benefits of reseller web hosting seem to far outweigh the disadvantages. With proper business planning, reseller web hosting seems to be a great addition to a company's products.

Virtual Private Server Web Hosting by Rodel Garcia

(PRWEB) September 8, 2005

What is Virtual Private Server Web Hosting?

Virtual Private Servers offer hosting customers a great balance between the control and power of a dedicated server, but at very affordable prices as compared to shared hosting. Virtual Private Servers, also known as VPS, Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS), or virtual server hosting, offer developers and web hosting resellers an excellent way of maximizing hosting investments.

As an intermediary service between shared web hosting and dedicated server hosting, the actual hardware server is divided into several isolated environments. Each environment, or space of the hardware, has its own server software, mail server, and independent software instances and services. This provides total independence for that particular website, as a crashed or corrupted application in another client's VPS setup has no effect on your virtual server hosting package. Virtual Private Servers minimize the compromises that shared web hosting has, as one does not have to share resources, applications, nor an environment a large number of other users in the same directory. Overall, VPS offers a distinct advantage in performance and security, as compared to shared web hosting.


The rewards of Virtual server hosting are based around control, security, and scalability.

VPS offers control, as many of the server resources available to end users are very similar to that of dedicated servers without the cost and expenses associated with utilizing a totally dedicated solution. Because of the control, VPS users are able to install their own applications, as well as use the feature of dedicated web servers, mail servers, database servers, and FTP servers.

Security is a major issue, as each VPS has its own dedicated system files. Other virtual server hosting accounts should never be able to 'see' your data, detect your presence, or affect the operation of your VPS. As compared to shared hosting, the benefit is protection from usage or behavior of other sites.

Lastly, scalability offers a great benefit in being able to upgrade to a more robust VPS solution or transfer files and applications to a dedicated server solution.


There are a plethora of known advantages. However, one of the major disadvantages is the requirement of advanced technical skills and program knowledge to install, maintain, and tweak specialized applications that need to run on VPS platforms. The answer to this, however, is that better Virtual Server Hosting companies provide detailed manuals that make processes of configuration and control easier, no matter what level of knowledge one has.

Next, mismanagement of too many virtual servers residing on the same computer, or if a few virtual servers start hogging resources, there may be an observable decrease in speed and performance on web page delivery.

Furthermore, depending on the hosting package, a virtual private server may allow endless ways of configuration, but it may not always include with it the essential web hosting tools and multiple-user management functions necessary to run the site of your specifications. One may have to find specific software to run, or may even have to purchase customized software to run on that platform, as compared to software which may be provided by shared hosting plans.

Lastly, although an advanced user would see the return on investment of virtual private hosting, cost may be prohibitive to a user who needs more basic functionality. As compared to shared web hosting, VPS pricing plans and packages cost more per unit time.

Technical Benefits:

Web hosting companies developed the virtual private server to provide features usually reserved for a dedicated server at a more affordable price. An increasing number of web hosting users needed more flexibility, custom configurations, and root access, and the concept of a true virtual server fit their needs perfectly.

What is the best application of a Virtual Private Server web hosting service provider?

Utility of virtual private services for advanced users is multifaceted. VPS users, in management of servers, have a wide variety of applications and uses. Flexibility, speed of data delivery, security, and reliability, as compared to a shared server environment, are markedly improved. Therefore, solutions such as e-commerce, multimedia, and web development testing suites and platforms such as ColdFusion, Active Server Pages, and Java™ are viable options for implementation on a VPS.

From simple websites to complex needs, Virtual private hosting can truly accommodate the present hosting needs, but also is for those who need the scalability of growth and prediction of future resource requirements.

Some more examples of applications that Virtual Private web hosting is duly suited for include:

Web-based calendaring & scheduling with employee scheduling

Multimedia applications through graphics, video, audio, and advanced rich advertising needs.

Tighter Email management (including possible spam protection)

More robust and powerful e-commerce possibilities (with secure data storage)

Corporate intranet implementation.

Multiple custom application development & hosting

Customer support ticket tracking

Data management

=| How to decide: |==

Generally being more technically savvy, users of VPS would be able to compare architectures that would offer the necessary speeds, ease of new software deployment, and the ability to install the latest technologies. Furthermore, possible VPS customers should be able to compare features on the hardware and software packages. Therefore, the following list of questions would be appropriate to understand and compare what packages are being offered and how they will affect the web page delivery.

If something breaks, do you have spare server parts to fix it immediately?

What kind of maintenance plan do you have with your hardware provider?

What kind of backup options do you offer to save my data?

What application options and modules are available to me for installation

What management methods are available for me to administer my server?

What kind of connection to the Internet do you have?

What are the brand and specifications of computers that you use? What are the hardware specs you have available (CPU speed, drive size, memory, etc.)?

Overall, virtual server hosting gives a high degree of flexibility and operative benefits.

Overall, the ROI for Virtual Private Servers offers web savvy customers needing fast and reliable services a great solution for their web hosting needs."

GoGrid Announces Version 2.0 of its Popular Cloud Computing Hosting Infrastructure

San Francisco, CA (Vocus) August 11, 2009

Today GoGrid, the Cloud Computing service from ServePath, released version 2.0 of its award-winning Cloud Computing Infrastructure solution. With this release, GoGrid users now have the ability to create personal server images, known as MyGSIs. MyGSI stands for "personal GoGrid Server Image," a "Golden Master" server image that can be customized, saved and stored for future deployments. Users are now able to create new servers from stored MyGSIs via the GoGrid web portal or API quickly and easily.

"We are extremely excited about this innovative new GoGrid release," said John Keagy, CEO and Co-Founder of GoGrid and ServePath. "This is an important development in the Cloud Computing marketplace, and further demonstrates our visionary approach to providing Cloud Computing functionality and features that our customers desire."

The creation of a MyGSI is an extremely simple 3-step process. First add an Image Sandbox, second, configure and prepare the Image Sandbox and third, save the Image Sandbox as a MyGSI. When a user needs to create a new Windows or Linux server based on the pre-configured MyGSI, they simply choose the saved image, fill in a few details, and instantiate the server in minutes within the GoGrid cloud.

There are several benefits and advantages of using a MyGSI to deploy servers within the GoGrid cloud:
