An assessment of

We, at, have chosen '' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. This is why we suppose that this short review of '' is perchance going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that '' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have spotted is the cut-rate prices of the shared web page hosting accounts offered 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 hosting plans provided by '' are powered by a custom invented, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a different bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting companies are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to construct their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web space hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the web hosting price amazingly low (because lots of customers are located on one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really require, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a small webspace hosting package that cannot host your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. In this way, you spare funds that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Every site hosting account furnished by '' comes with an online site building tool and over 40 popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. '' furnishes shared web site hosting packages in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished '' are quite well furnished and come at a very reasonable price (starting from $4.20 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS server may seem troublesome to handle. That's probably why '' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to administering a regular shared web site hosting account via a web space hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free website building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not come with full server root access (we, at, count this as a little inconvenience), but the good point is that they are administered through the same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared hosting plans. This goes to say that a known graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by '' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from '' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' requirements, '' offers an array of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers boast: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of site. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans offered by '' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers provided by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a tiny minus, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of website hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by '' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
