An assessment of

We, at, have picked '' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we think that this brief review of '' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that '' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared website hosting packages provided by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting plans offered by '' are driven by a custom devised, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an independent bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have mammoth problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting vendors are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must invent their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine cloud web space hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the price really low (since multiple customers utilize the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web space hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end site hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you spare money that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still new. Each web hosting plan furnished by '' comes with an online web site builder and over forty popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. '' distributes shared web site hosting solutions in several different regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, nearly the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting services delivered '' are very well furnished and come at a very low price (starting from $3.95 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's probably why '' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to managing a normal shared web space hosting plan through a CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared packages. When compared with a shared hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not include full server root access (we, at, regard this as a tiny minus), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web hosting CP user interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This signifies that a known graphical interface is available to all customers who are not self-confident enough to administer a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual hosting server can deliver. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by '' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from '' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' expectations, '' provides a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any sort of site. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server accounts furnished by '' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each server arrives with free billing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers offered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the great point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
