Virtualize Your Hosting to Save Money, Time, and Energy

As a hosting or reselling provider, you need to be able to maximize in order to survive in the current economy.  This means maximizing your time in terms of server creation, partitioning, and destruction.  It means maximizing your resources in terms of what is required for every website to run on your servers.  And it means maximizing your money by finding the most cost effective way to create websites and servers.  The best way to accomplish all of this and more is simple- virtualization.

Using virtualization technology such as Parallels Virtuozzo is simply a wise business move.  This can help you save thousands of dollars on hardware, because Virtuozzo can create virtual private servers on the fly, creating and destroying them on the fly as you need the resources.  Offering virtualization can also help by ensuring that you are providing your customers with a new service option that can help greatly increase your overall revenue.  Virtualization lets you utilize virtual servers that are independent of one another, providing great benefit to your customers and end users and allows you to virtualize resources as well, ensuring that every server has the amount of resources needed at any given moment rather than creating equal distribution through a physical server.

The Difference Between Updates and Upgrades

When looking online to learn more about certain software and features, you will find that people seem to use the terms update and upgrade interchangeably.  Yet the truth of the matter is that they two terms are incredibly different.  When it comes to your operating system or control panel, knowing the difference between updates and upgrades is key.  You will also want to know whether upgrades are necessary depending on the version of your software or operating system, and here we will take a better look at both terms.

upgrade vs update The Difference Between Updates and Upgrades


Updates are offered frequently by both operating system manufacturers and control panel makers.  These updates are usually small downloads that will add new features, improve security, or patch over a potential flaw in a program’s code.  Updating is absolutely essential and whether you are considering cPanel, Plesk, Linux, or ClientExec, you will find that it is generally best to download updates as soon as they become available.  This will help prevent any potential security concerns and ensure that you are always offering the top options available from within any of these programs.  The bottom line is that in reality, updates are absolutely essential.


Upgrades are slightly more optional, though still very worth your consideration.  An upgrade is an entirely new version of a program.  Upgrades are considerably more time consuming and can mean that you will need to reinstall everything that goes on top of them.  This can be easily accomplished by creating backups of your control panel or website in many cases, but you will find that an upgrade can take you offline.  Because of this, they are often recommended to be performed during scheduled maintenance and you will want to consider whether the new features and options are worth the added cost of buying a new version of the same program.
