I would like to inquire about the virtualization of Windows VPS for reselling purposes. I am interested in automating the provisioning process when a customer checks out. Currently, I use Hyper-V and set it up manually, with login information sent manually to customers as well.

My website operates on WordPress+WHMCS, and I am looking for an automated system to handle this process. Is it possible to integrate Hyper-V with WHMCS? I have been using Hyper-V for over two years, and my customers are happy with it. Additionally, I have been using the host's official license of Windows Server for all VPS.

Could you kindly offer any suggestions?


The most recent version of Windows Server that I was able to remotely connect to with RDC had 4GB RAM and used Hyper-V. However, I am running software that requires a lot of resources and tracks software updates for client Windows machines.

 It's important to note that I haven't tried setting up my own hosting, only using Windows VPS hosting. I did have satisfactory performance with OVH with KVM, but it was more expensive at almost $40 per month for the VPS. Currently, I pay less than $10 per month for a Hyper-V VPS.


HyperVPS is a fast and powerful VPS server on the Windows operating system with Hyper-V virtualization, I personally used it. I was satisfied. For the knowledgeable, it is easy to use and copes with its task


Sysadmins and IT managers have identified several qualities that make Hyper-V hypervisor and Windows OS highly desirable, including good stability, support for clustering and live migration of VMs, scalability, and the ability to assign network cards to virtual machines. The last feature is essential in avoiding bottlenecks that occur when only one physical network adapter is assigned to a virtual switch.

Live Migration, for instance, makes it possible to move a virtual machine without requiring user intervention. They also highlight the potential for full-fledged centralized management of servers – hosts and Hyper-V – without additional licenses as is the case with VMware vCenter.

P2V migration from physical to virtual machines is relatively easy, involving creating a VHD image of the physical system that is then assigned to a new virtual machine. Also, Enhanced Session Mode permits copying and pasting within virtual machines.

Hyper-V is both easy to use and an excellent alternative to VMware in SMB segments. It is also included in Windows 10 as a nearly full-featured version. The hypervisor can be downloaded at no extra cost from Microsoft's official website, and it is easy to install and configure, making it highly suitable for Microsoft OS virtualization.

Additional advantages include Hyper-V's compatibility with most Microsoft products, its suitability for installing on any server that supports Windows, and its ease of use.

However, Hyper-V's weak points are its storage configuration options. Importing, exporting, and creating templates could be more user-friendly and reliable. Additionally, configuring High Availability is quite challenging, requiring cluster formation, which is not as natural and straightforward as vSphere. Lastly, migrating a virtual machine to a Hyper-V hypervisor from a different processor family is currently impossible.

Unlike vMotion, Hyper-V does not have Distributed Resource Scheduler or Storage DRS for balancing loads between host resources. However, SCVMM in Hyper-V hypervisor presents possibilities beyond server virtualization, allowing users to create a private cloud with self-service options.

Overall, Hyper-V offers a completely free program in SCVMM for System Center, which is not the case with VMware's vCloud Director solution. Also, SCVMM allows users to utilize hosts with Hyper-V, vSphere, and Citrix hypervisor as virtualization platforms, while vCenter only manages VMware hosts.
