What Is VPS Hosting?

ezwebs.co.uk _  Image Name VPS stands for “Virtual Private Server” and it is a means of combining the performance advantages of dedicated hosting with the cost-effectiveness of shared hosting.

Much like with shared hosting, you will be renting space from a data centre which can be shared with lots of other customers and websites.

The difference with VPS is that in this case, the resources from the data centre will be requisitioned to you on a dedicated basis.

This means that although you are still sharing a data centre with lots of other websites, the resources allocated to your project will be 100% dedicated to your account and your project

Fun Fact!

The concept behind VPS (Virtual Private Servers) is the technological concept of Virtualization. This means that a piece of technology can be replicated within computers of greater power. This began in the early 2000s following the launch of VMware who introduced the concept of "virtual machines".

A VPS leverages this concept by requisitioning specific combinations of hardware from large data centres on a dedicated basis to create "Virtual Private Servers" which can replicate the functions of actual dedicated servers. This gives enormous flexibility to setups and also delivers substantial savings versus a dedicated server.

Which VPS Is
BEST FOR ME?

What Are The Options?

Managed or Self-Managed VPS?
ezwebs.co.uk _  Image Name

Managed Or Self-Managed VPS?

ezwebs.co.uk _  Image Name It’s very important to pick the right option when it comes to managed or self-managed hosting and it really boils down to the experience you have in operating a server (and the amount of time you can dedicate to learning & actually taking care of server management tasks).

The main differences are:

  • Managed VPS hosting means that we take care of the server for you including all software installation and settings configurations.
 
  • Self-managed VPS hosting means that you have full root access which grants you ultimate flexibility to set up and manage the server as you please. 
Linux or Windows Server VPS?
ezwebs.co.uk _  Image Name

Linux vs. Windows Server Environments

ezwebs.co.uk _  Image Name Linux vs. Windows is usually a matter of performance vs. sheer user friendliness. That is to say, Linux systems usually perform better, but are not as user friendly as Windows systems.

  • Ubuntu and CentOS are the Linux operating systems we utilise. These are primarily aimed at high-performance environments however, they do require more server management and networking experience to use. It’s also worth remembering that command line interfaces are standard with Linux-based server operating systems.
  • Windows Server systems are also available. These are great for users who are just getting started with server management but they generally offer slightly reduced performance in return for a more user-friendly experience. This is because they offer a graphical user interface (GUI) as standard.
Control Panels or CLI?

Command Lines & Control Panels

ezwebs.co.uk _  Image Name Most of our Linux and Windows hosting options come with dedicated GUI’s (Graphical User Interfaces). The most popular choices here are cPanel and Plesk which are best suited for Linux and Windows Server environments respectively. GUI’s are essential if you do not have significant experience with server management because they provide an intuitive graphical control panel interface to work with. Some of our budget options however are equipped only with a CLI (command line interface) which is standard across Linux environments. This can be daunting for beginners and can take a while to get used to as you will have to remember each command and work in a 100% text-based CLI which is less intuitive than control panel GUI’s.

The Bottom Line

Yes, you may save money by using just a CLI for your VPS. However, you will be compromising some degree of user-friendliness and accessibility which is not recommended for beginners.

So at Ezwebs, we recommend cPanel or Plesk options for those who are new to self-managed VPS hosting and aren’t specifically concerned with mega-performance or mega-powered servers.

So, what's the conclusion here?

ezwebs.co.uk _  Image Name The bottom line here is that if you’re planning to just get started managing a server for the first time and don’t have pre-existing network management experience, you will probably be better off with a managed Windows Server solution.

The primary advantage to Linux OS is in performance, security and stability. So, unless you really feel you need the extra few % of performance, you will likely be better off with Windows Server if you are seeking a self-managed option for the first time.

Similarly, the primary advantage to self-managed hosting is the flexibility and cost-saving. However… unless you really are confident with managing your own hosting and you really want to put the time into doing it, it’s probably better to choose a managed option and leave this to our team.

SELF-MANAGED
VPS OPTIONS

Self-managed VPS Plans

ezwebs.co.uk _  Image Name Self-managed web hosting gives you complete control over your own server because you will be managing it yourself, your way.

With self-managed plans, the server/hosting will be delivered with just an OS installed, so all other software installation, such as control panel, or updates need to performed by you, the customer. A perfect solution for when you would like to take control and manage it in a way that suits you.

PLEASE BEAR IN MIND…

Self-managed hosting does require network administration experience because you will need to understand how to manage software, configurations, partitions, etc. and if you aren’t comfortable doing this (or learning to do this!) then you might be better with a managed VPS plan.

COMMON QUESTIONS

Questions?

FAQ

What is VPS hosting and what are the benefits?

A VPS uses a technique called virtualisation to recreate a dedicated server within a shared host environment by simply requisitioning a dedicated set of private resources for your account from the broader server.


This means that although you’re sharing a server with other account holders, the resources such as CPU, RAM, hard disk, etc. are fully dedicated to your project and completely private.


This delivers higher performance along with significant cost savings and can be thought of as a middle-ground between shared hosting and dedicated hosting.

Do I have to share resources within a server?
No!

With your VPS plan, you will be provided with a quota of CPU, RAM and other resources that will be dedicated to your project.


The only “sharing” occurs within infrastructure of the server itself.

What is the advantage of managed hosting?
The primary advantage of managed hosting is that your VPS will be fully managed on your behalf by a dedicated professional.

Quite simply, this means that there is less for you to do and worry about!

Of course, a managed option does cost more than a self-managed server and so, you can think of the advantage between managed and self-managed options as being one of cost saving and the fundamental work involved in maintaining your account.
How do I transfer my website to your servers?
Moving your website to Ezwebs is a simple process.

If you have access to your existing website files, you can upload them through our Hosting Control Center or with an FTP client.

If you don’t have a current copy of your website, you should be able to request one from your hosting provider current website

If you have any questions along the way, our technical support team is here to help. We can help you determine the best method to transition your website to an Ezwebs account.
I just bought a hosting plan. What now?
The first step is to activate your account. Simply visit our customer portal and click on “My Account”. You will be prompted to enter your customer number or username and your password.

Once you log in, you will see a list of products. Select the gray box next to Web hosting , and then choose the account you want to activate. Then click the Start button for that account.

You just need to take a few more steps.

Click the Enter domain box, and then type the domain name or choose the name from the list.

Enter your own FTP username or select the one we suggest. Create and confirm your password, click Finish, and you’re done!

After you’ve completed these steps, it may take 30 minutes to 24 hours for your new account to be fully active. After everything is up and running, we’ll send you an email with all the account details.

For more information, see the “Getting started with your hosting account” section.
