cPanel is a powerful Linux-based control panel that simplifies managing, configuring and automating your web server, making your life easier. Included with cPanel is Web Host Manager (WHM), which streamlines server management tasks and allows you to run a scalable online business. All of our VPS Hosting plans include a FREE cPanel / WHM license, meaning you get all of the power and functionality these tools have to offer, at no extra cost to you. Below are some of the ways cPanel + WHM can improve your web hosting experience.
A VPS Server is the reasonable web hosting choice for your domains when more system resources are needed. VPS takes of the virtualization technologies to partition physical servers into several virtual machines. Virtual Private Server Hosting is the future of modern hosting as it provides the power and functionality of a high-end dedicated server but at a much lower price. Main virtualization technologies used including Vmware, OpenVZ and XEN etc. By purchasing a VPS hosting package, you get a 100% individual machine with your own dedicated CPU and RAM, and mostly root access to the hosting server. Each Virtual Server can run under its own operating system (Windows server, CentOS and other Linux distributions) or have custom configurations of its own.

For companies that implement certain programs and scripting languages, such as PHP, MySQL, or Perl in combination with other software programs, Linux VPS hosting is an excellent option. JaguarPC’s VPS hosting services are especially beneficial for small to medium-sized businesses. Through a VPS, you and your company will enjoy a secure, affordable, and fully scalable pool of resources.
Unlike managed VPS plans, unmanaged VPS plans are not actively managed by A2 Hosting. Unmanaged VPS plans are for more advanced users who are comfortable using the command-line interface and doing system administration tasks. These plans include root account access so you can customize the server as much as necessary. As a result, you are responsible for the following items:

A Virtual Private Server is created by partitioning the physical server into multiple mini servers, made possible by the technology of Server Virtualization. The term Virtual Server is widely used by Internet hosting services and it is often used to refer a Virtual Machine. A Virtual Private Server VPS works in a federated environment used by other virtual machines. But in all aspects the functionality is equivalent to that of an environment created by a physical computer dedicated to individual customer needs. It offers the same privacy, which is seen in separate physical computer environment, configured to run server software. Virtual Private Servers are also known with the synonyms Virtual Root Server VRS and Virtual Dedicated Server VDS.
For packages supporting unmetered disk space or data transfer (bandwidth), we do not have defined limitations. These resources are "unmetered", meaning you are not billed according to the amount of disk space or bandwidth used. While of course these resources are not infinite, we believe our customers should have all the resources necessary to build an online presence and 99.95% of customers will have more than enough disk space and bandwidth to meet their needs.
Lastly, arguably the most significant advantage of VPS hosting comes at the highest price. You get root access and unparalleled control of the resources granted. That means that you can install a wide range of operating systems, work on resource-heavy projects and do much more, than with shared hosting. But sadly, the customer support team will only help you with questions relating to VPS hosting management and other back-end related queries.
CPU is one area in which we are quite unique with VPS Hosting. We do not lock you down to a certain number of cores that you are forced to stay within, but balance it across our fleet of VPS servers. If you are using so much CPU that you are affecting other users on your server, we will either move you to another server or ask you to upgrade your plan.
The golden rule for unmanaged VPS hosting is this: If you have a problem with your unmanaged VPS Account, it is your problem. If the problem is software related, resource related, performance related, need troubleshooting or configuration of software, or need general help understanding Unix or server applications, you are on your own and should not expect help from the web host.
Ever wanted more CPU and processing power without the cost of buying another server? InMotion Hosting is unique in how we handle CPU Cores for our Virtual Private Servers. Just like Burstable RAM, we give you flexible resource limits with CPU Cores. Whether you only need a single core for a simple script, or multiple cores for a heavy traffic custom application, our VPS platform automatically adapts to your processing needs. This ensures that no matter what your task is, it's done quickly and efficiently.

The fun part starts when you try to secure your server. I configured CSF (ConfigServer Security & Firewall) and cPHulk Brute Force Protection to make sure the server is secure. As i am responsible for the security of my own server, i am always having to spend valuable time to stop any attack or hacks. I usually get notifications of hackers trying to get in but the server hardening work has made it impossible to hack. The only thing is, now, i wouldn't mind paying the extra to get a managed server so i can use the time elsewhere.


Virtual Private Server(VPS) is popular because of the advanced requirements from medium to large websites. If you have a website which is becoming more and more popular and requires more server and bandwidth resources, you may want to upgrade from a shared hosting to VPS hosting. See more details about VPS hosting features & FAQs. Here we will compare two of the most popular VPS hosting services and types – Managed VPS and Unmanaged VPS.
All the features I've detailed to this point are valuable to the web hosting experience, but none matches the critical importance of site uptime. If your site is down, clients or customers will be unable to find you or access your products or services. It doesn't matter how great the features are, or how good it looks; if your site is down, it might as well not exist.

If you are not already familiar with Linux system administration, you will need to devote a great deal of time to familiarizing yourself with all of the applications you're using and the CentOS operating system - you could pay someone else to set up your VPS for you, but that wouldn't help down the road when you need to update software and resolve administrative issues... (if you're not sure, go with a managed service)
KVM virtualization gives customers more possibilities of management and server configuration. As it is a kernel based VPS hosting, kernels can be upgraded and modified by installing kernel modules. KVM has its own virtualized hardware, and the virtual server acts as a physical server. There is a possibility to set up a container-based system, such a Docker or Kubernetes to create OS level based containers on the KVM server.
InMotion Hosting’s Virtual Private Server Hosting comes with a number of additional features including high-availability, Live-State and Scheduled snapshots, resource monitoring, free solid-state drives (SSDs), a free full cPanel license, 2-3 free dedicated IP addresses, WHM, CentOS, burstable RAM, automated data backups, unlimited MySQL databases, email accounts and FTP accounts, root access and SSH access.
Traffic Handling Users of the server may be hampered by an excessive number of requests from a webpage or application. Your website may become very slow or even temporarily stop. Because this system has its own piece of server capacity that other users can not access, you will not be hampered by other websites or applications. The performance of your website will naturally become a little better and more reliable. The question of being hampered by other websites or applications do not arise at all.

For plans or packages featuring unlimited websites, domains, or email accounts, we do not enforce any official limitations. Customers are able to utilize as many of these features as they wish. That said, these are of course not infinite resources and there are inherent maximums associated with the technology powering them. For example, while email account creation is unlimited, these rely on the file storage available on the account. Therefore customers need to be operating within the Terms of Service to ensure resources are available to fully enable email functionality. Customers operating within the Terms of Service have yet to come up against technical boundaries for email, domains, or websites.
Technical knowledge: No technical knowledge is required for running a managed server. When you need to do something technical all you have to do is contact support and let the skilled technical support operators handle the rest. With an unmanaged server you need to have server administration skills and love working in the command line otherwise it will be very difficult to administer your server efficiently.

koding.com has a free VM running Ubuntu. The specs are pretty good, 1 gig memory for example. They have a terminal online you can access through their website, or use SSH. The VM will go to sleep approximately 20 minutes after you log out. The reason is to discourage users from running live production code on the VM. The VM resides behind a proxy. Running web servers that only speak HTTP (port 80) should work just fine, but I think you'll get into a lot of trouble whenever you want to work directly with other ports. Many mind-like alternatives offer similar setups. Good luck!
The concept of a virtual private server can be better explained as a virtual machine that caters to the individual needs of a user just as a separate physical computer that is dedicated to a particular user. The virtual dedicated server provides the same functionality and privacy as that of a normal physical computer. A number of virtual private servers can be installed on a single physical server with each one running its own operating system.

Hostinger gives you the chance to build a project the way you want it. Our VPS hosting allows the use of multiple kernels and offers of a wide range of operating systems ready to install in 1-click. Simple, but powerful management tools will let you maximize the potential of your Virtual Private Server.

Although multiple VPS accounts are hosted on one physical server, we can run several different virtualized operating systems on that one server. Each of these operating systems will perform as if it was on its own dedicated server, giving you all of the benefits at a fraction of the cost. InMotion Hosting uses Parallels Virtuozzo Container to virtualize the operating system.
OpenVZ virtualization is an OS level container-based virtualization, and it has resources that are divided between users on a physical server. Each container acts like a stand-alone virtual server and can be accessed with a root (SSH) connection. As a separate server container can be rebooted separately, it also has a dedicated IP address, shared RAM, individual processes, files, applications, system libraries and configuration files. On OpenVZ, the kernel cannot be modified. It has its stable version and modules cannot be added. The good thing regarding this virtualization is a faster performance, and a lower need of resources.

The next thing I want to show here is actually how to install a Windows 7 inside this one. To create a new computer here and I just called this one Windows 7. And it’s based on my text on Mac and figured out that it was actually going to be Windows 7 down here so that’s fine but that’s important because selecting the right type down here is going to have the supporting software installed as driver inside of ratings so if you’re installing 2008 or Windows 8 or something like that one. Remember to pick the right version down here of Windows.
You can host a basic web application, such as a blog or simple website in a VPC, and gain the additional layers of privacy and security afforded by Amazon VPC. You can help secure the website by creating security group rules which allow the webserver to respond to inbound HTTP and SSL requests from the Internet while simultaneously prohibiting the webserver from initiating outbound connections to the Internet. You can create a VPC that supports this use case by selecting "VPC with a Single Public Subnet Only" from the Amazon VPC console wizard.
