To fulfill the need for budget, but reliable hosting services, providers initiated a transitional website hosting solution – the virtual private web server. This is a virtual simulation of a hosting server that works just like a dedicated servers hosting and is much more powerful than any shared site hosting solution.
At the same time, as a lot of accounts are hosted on the same physical hosting server and each user pays for their account, the price for a private virtual server web hosting solution is significantly lower than the price for a dedicated web server.
A small-scale VPS hosting account is a bit more high-priced than the most feature-rich shared web page hosting account, but its system resources excel by far those of the shared web hosting account.
Each given account is isolated from the remaining accounts on the server, so each virtual web hosting server can run a different Operating System and be rebooted independently from the other ones.
The VPSs are administered via a virtualization console where users can take a glimpse at all running tasks and terminate or restart them, update server-side software, have a glimpse at the used up and the remaining system resources, OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual PC and VMware are merely a few instances of software platforms utilized for setting up and managing Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts. They have various requirements in relation to the central processing unit architecture, the OSs they support, and so on.
For instance, Virtuozzo can function on machines with x86 or AMD64 processors, can be installed on a server running both Windows and Linux OSs, and permits both of these Working Systems to be actuated on the solid private virtual web servers
