An assessment of

We, at, have picked '' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. This is why we imagine that this concise review of '' is perchance going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the Globe, because the simple fact is that '' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from '' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have detected is the modest prices of the shared web space hosting plans furnished by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts delivered by '' are driven by a custom designed, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an individual stack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have mammoth difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting corporations are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the website hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of customers are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small website hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a tiny plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. That way, you spare funds that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Each and every web space hosting account supplied by '' comes with an online web site builder and over forty widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. '' furnishes shared web space hosting solutions in several different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions provided '' are quite well appointed and come at a budget price (starting from $3.95 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may appear troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why '' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a typical shared webspace hosting package via a hosting CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a free web site builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not ship with complete server root access (we, at, think that this is a tiny minus), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This hints that a known graphical interface is accessible by all users who are not confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a VPS can provide them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from '' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' anticipations, '' provides a selection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the dedicated servers include: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of site. In ''s opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications supplied by '' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server provides free-of-cost billing software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the impressive point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
