An evaluation of

We, at, have selected '' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. This is why we believe that this succinct assessment of '' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that '' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have noticed is the cheap prices of the shared web page hosting plans delivered by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting accounts provided by '' are powered by a custom developed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a separate set of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have big problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting providers cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered hosting solution. With a shared hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since many customers use one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, refraining from a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting account that cannot accommodate your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your website grows. That way, you economize cash that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Every web space hosting package supplied by '' contains an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. '' offers shared web page hosting accounts in several different countries across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, approximately the entire Globe is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting solution at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting plans supplied '' are quite well stocked and come at a very good price (beginning from $4.20 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why '' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a standard shared web page hosting account through a Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free web site builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not arrive with full server root access (we, at, deem this a little weakness), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same site hosting CP interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual web server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from '' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' demands, '' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of website. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans supplied by '' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little inconvenience, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. Several hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by '' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
