An assessment of

We, at, have selected '' to be our current domain name and web hosting provider. Therefore we anticipate that this short review of '' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere truth is that '' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from '' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have seen is the budget prices of the shared web space hosting services offered by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans provided by '' are driven by a custom developed, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an independent group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have mammoth predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting companies are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must create their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered hosting system. With a shared web space hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (since lots of clients use one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered hosting system, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed need, avoiding a situation where you pay for a powerful web site hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you economize cash that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each site hosting account offered by '' contains an online site builder and over 40 widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. '' provides shared web site hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, practically the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting solution at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting services supplied '' are quite well furnished and come at a budget price (beginning from $8.75 for the Business plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no experience, a private virtual hosting server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why '' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a normal shared website hosting plan via a Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting package such as a fee-free site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared packages. When compared to a shared site hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not include complete root-level access (we, at, think of this as a little weak point), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same web hosting CP user interface as the shared accounts. This indicates that a well-known GUI is available to all clients who are not confident enough to handle a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a private virtual web hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by '' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It seems that the guys from '' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' requirements, '' supplies a selection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. According to '', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations supplied by '' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each server offers free-of-charge invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by '' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
