A review of

We, at, have chosen '' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Therefore we anticipate that this brief evaluation of '' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, since the mere truth is that '' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from '' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting solutions provided by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting packages delivered by '' are powered by a custom built, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an independent bunch of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have mammoth problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting corporations cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must make their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web site hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the web hosting price very low (because many clients are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered site hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web hosting plan that cannot host your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web page expands. In this way, you economize cash that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Each web site hosting plan provided by '' includes an online website building tool and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. '' delivers shared hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, approximately the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans delivered '' are very well stocked and are available at a budget price (starting from $4.20 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why '' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a regular shared plan through a hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a fee-free web site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated server packages do not offer root-level access (we, at, count this as a tiny disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web site hosting CP GUI as the shared site hosting packages. This signifies that a well-known graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a VPS web server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by '' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from '' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' requirements, '' provides an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of web site. According to '', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs supplied by '' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server offers free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
