An evaluation of

We, at, have picked '' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we think that this brief evaluation of '' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that '' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting services furnished by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting accounts delivered by '' are driven by an in-house designed, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an individual host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have enormous troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web site hosting companies are not able to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to set up their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared web site hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the web space hosting price amazingly low (since many customers utilize the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end website hosting plan that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page grows. Thus, you economize capital that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still new. Every website hosting package furnished by '' boasts an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. '' furnishes shared hosting packages in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, approximately the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting solution at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts supplied '' are really well equipped and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from $3.95 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual web server may seem tough to manage. That's perhaps why '' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a typical shared web site hosting account through a web site hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting package such as a free website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When compared with a shared site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not arrive with root-level access (we, at, count this as a small weakness), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same web hosting CP tool as the shared web page hosting accounts. This suggests that a familiar GUI is accessible by all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a virtual private hosting server, yet demand more power and features than a virtual private web hosting server can give them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from '' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' demands, '' provides a bouquet of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady work of any type of site. According to '', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server plans furnished by '' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server provides free invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
