An evaluation of

We, at, have selected '' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. This is why we anticipate that this concise assessment of '' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that '' currently provides domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering virtually the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at, have noted is the budget prices of the shared hosting accounts supplied by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting packages delivered by '' are driven by a custom created, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a different host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have enormous predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting providers are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must create their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared site hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the web space hosting price really low (because many users utilize one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered web site hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a powerful web hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end hosting package that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you save capital that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Every web hosting plan provided by '' sports an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. '' distributes shared web space hosting packages in several different countries across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, practically the whole Earth is covered to supply you and your visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages furnished '' are very well stocked and come at a cut-rate price (beginning from $3.95 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may appear difficult to administer. That's perhaps why '' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a conventional shared webspace hosting account through a web page hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free-of-charge site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When compared to a shared plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not arrive with complete root access (we, at, regard this as a little weakness), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web space hosting CP tool as the shared web page hosting plans. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a VPS can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '' can be branded as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from '' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' anticipations, '' provides a number of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specifications supplied by '' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a tiny inconvenience, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by '' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $210.00 for the Xeon Scalable 16c package.
