As an acronym for Virtual Private Server, VPS is a type of hosting many businesses and digital publishers move on to after outgrowing their shared hosting plans. It is also referred to as a virtual dedicated server, or VDS Hosting. VPS hosting offer increased control and provide you with the ability to perform more advanced functions with your website. Unlike shared hosting, VPS server space is split up into self-contained units.
Get the control panel you prefer by selecting it at order time. Either is available - it's strictly a matter of personal preference. Many people opt for cPanel, because of its popularity - and we can't fault them for that. However, it’s your VPS – so you’re in control - you can have other control panels and software installed instead - it's totally up to you (but faster setup times if you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin).
For our fully managed VPS server we include an easy to use custom cPanel Control Panel that offers many administrative tools but basic knowledge of file transfer and application management are beneficial. Our semi-managed offering does not include the control panel and will require a more in depth technical expertise to keep your website running smoothly.
If you want to customize your Web hosting server or need more technical flexibility than shared hosting, but the price tag of a dedicated server is prohibitive, then a VPS can be a brilliant option. You get full root-level access to install and delete software, set permissions, create accounts and determine your customized server environment – but because you are still sharing hardware you don't have to be concerned about the physical server maintenance and security.

Do you plan to sell products or services? If so, you'll want to invest in a web hosting service that offers Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). An SSL connection encrypts the financial information that shuttles between users' web browsers and your website, thus safeguarding the transmission of the purchasing information. Some hosting companies include a free SSL certificate when you sign up for a web hosting plan, while others charge close to $100. You can save some money by shopping around for services that offer the cheaper SSL plans.

However another option is to pool together a cluster of physical servers into a cloud arrangement whereby the data is stored across several physical disks in several physical machines. This dramatically reduces the possibility of hardware related downtime by spreading the load and the risk of hardware failure. This is a High Availability Cloud setup which Pickaweb uses.
Amazon VPC provides advanced security features, such as security groups and network access control lists, to enable inbound and outbound filtering at the instance level and subnet level. In addition, you can store data in Amazon S3 and restrict access so that it’s only accessible from instances in your VPC. Optionally, you can also choose to launch Dedicated Instances which run on hardware dedicated to a single customer for additional isolation.
