An assessment of

We, at, have selected '' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Therefore we deem that this concise assessment of '' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, because the simple fact is that '' currently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared hosting accounts provided 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 offered by '' are powered by an in-house designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have mammoth difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web space hosting providers are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered web site hosting system. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the web site hosting price amazingly low (because lots of customers utilize the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web site hosting package that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Hence, you economize money that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each and every webspace hosting plan provided by '' offers an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. '' provides shared web site hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, practically the whole World is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting solution at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts provided '' are very well equipped and come at a very good price (beginning from $4.20 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear difficult to handle. That's perhaps why '' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a normal shared web site hosting plan via a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not arrive with root access (we, at, consider this a little minus), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same web site hosting CP interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This means that a well-known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a VPS can deliver. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '' can be defined as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the guys from '' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' expectations, '' provides a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. In ''s opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server plans furnished by '' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server comes with free invoice transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers delivered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a small negative point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of website hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the excellent point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
