A2 Hosting Releases cPanel VPS Hosting


Ann Arbor, MI – December 8, 2008 – Linux website hosting provider A2 Hosting ( has announced that their VPS hosting packages ( now come with the option to be managed with the cPanel control panel. VPS hosting is an environment that is created by taking a server and dividing it into multiple, smaller segments called virtual private servers (VPS). The VPS packages offered at A2 Hosting allow their customers to host their website in an environment that is much like dedicated server hosting, but at a fraction of the cost.

cPanel is a feature-full control panel with resources to simplify the administration of a web hosting account. It offers tools for easy management of domains, email, files, FTP, CGI scripts, backups and much more. A2 Hosting will even assist in the initial cPanel configuration for a one-time minimal fee for less experienced customers. Fantastico can also be added to cPanel VPS accounts. Fantastico is a script that easily auto-installs a wide range of web software including blogs, forums, shopping carts and much more.

A2 Hosting CEO Bryan Muthig commented on the release of cPanel VPS Hosting: “When referring to webmasters who host their websites in a VPS environment, you are generally looking at very experienced users. Our new cPanel VPS accounts make it possible for lesser experienced webmasters who are also interested in VPS to easily manage their web hosting account.”

A2 Hosting’s VPS packages provide customers with a ton of flexibility. Customers have the choice of Xen or OpenVZ virtualization platforms. Xen VPS behaves most like a dedicated account where one customer’s account cannot touch another account’s allocated CPU processing and memory limits. The OpenVZ platform is best known for its speedy performance, low resource requirements and for being very user friendly.

Customers who choose not to use cPanel to manage their account have their choice of custom Linux operating systems. Their choices are CentOS, Fedora Core, Debian, Gentoo, Slackware and Ubuntu.
