A review of

We, at, have picked '' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we imagine that this short assessment of '' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, since the mere truth is that '' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in short:

Shared Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts delivered by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting plans supplied by '' are powered by a custom built, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an autonomous host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have big complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting companies are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered web hosting solution. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (because plenty of users use the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end web hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Hence, you spare capital that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web space hosting plan provided by '' contains an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. '' distributes shared website hosting services in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, almost the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied '' are very well appointed and come at a very low price (starting from $4.20 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no experience, a private virtual web server may seem complicated to handle. That's perhaps why '' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main North American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared web hosting plan through a web space hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When compared with a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not include root-level access (we, at, deem this a tiny negative point), but the plus is that they are managed via the very same web site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared website hosting plans. This means that a well-known graphical user interface is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can deliver. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by '' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the guys from '' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' expectations, '' offers an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of site. In ''s opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server solutions supplied by '' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every hosting server provides free-of-cost billing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers supplied by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a minor negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides various additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia Control Panel will probably render the use of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by '' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
