A survey of

We, at, have selected '' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Therefore we consider that this succinct assessment of '' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the simple fact is that '' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have detected is the low prices of the shared web hosting accounts delivered by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting packages supplied by '' are driven by a custom invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a separate host of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have big complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting suppliers are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to construct their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine cloud site hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since multiple clients utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end web space hosting package that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. That way, you economize capital that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still novel. Every website hosting package delivered by '' comprises an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design services. '' provides shared web hosting plans in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. In this way, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting service at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts offered '' are quite well equipped and are available at an affordable price (beginning from $4.17 for the First Plan plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual private web server may appear hard to administer. That's probably why '' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal American data center facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a conventional shared hosting package through a web hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting account such as a fee-free website builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not come with full root access (we, at, count this as a slight inconvenience), but the good point is that they are managed through the same Control Panel GUI as the shared web page hosting accounts. This signifies that a familiar graphical environment is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual hosting server, yet demand more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can furnish them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by '' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from '' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' needs, '' offers a selection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. According to '', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs supplied by '' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server offers free-of-charge billing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $33.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides various extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by '' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
