An evaluation of

We, at, have selected '' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this brief assessment of '' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, because the mere fact is that '' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have noted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting services offered by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages delivered by '' are powered by an in-house created, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a separate group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have enormous problems with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting vendors are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to design their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud site hosting solution. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the web hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of clients share one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered website hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you save cash that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each website hosting package provided by '' arrives with an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. '' provides shared site hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting services furnished '' are quite well appointed and come at a budget price (beginning from $4.49 for the Business plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual server may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why '' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to administering a typical shared website hosting account via a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared website hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not arrive with root privileges (we, at, regard this as a minor weakness), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web space hosting CP interface as the shared web page hosting plans. This suggests that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all customers who are not confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPSs can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '' can be defined as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the guys from '' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' demands, '' offers a collection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the web servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any sort of website. In ''s opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans delivered by '' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every web server offers free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a tiny inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by '' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
