An assessment of

We, at, have picked '' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we imagine that this short review of '' is probably going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that '' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering nearly the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from '' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have perceived is the budget prices of the shared webspace hosting packages delivered by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages offered by '' are driven by an in-house built, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a separate stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have great predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting companies are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the hosting price amazingly low (because lots of users utilize the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered website hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really require, escaping a situation where you pay for a powerful website hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a small website hosting account that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. Thus, you economize money that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still new. Each and every web hosting package furnished by '' arrives with an online web site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. '' supplies shared web hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting service at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied '' are quite well equipped and are available at an excellent price (starting from $3.49 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS web hosting server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why '' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to administering a conventional shared website hosting account via a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared website hosting package such as a fee-free site builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not offer complete server root access (we, at, regard this as a minor defect), but the good point is that they are managed through the same web hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This indicates that a recognizable graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to manage a VPS, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a virtual private hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '' can be categorized as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from '' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' needs, '' delivers a number of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the web servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any type of website. In ''s opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server configurations supplied by '' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server provides free invoicing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers supplied by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a tiny minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting CP will probably render the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by '' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
