A review of

We, at, have selected '' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we think that this concise evaluation of '' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all around the World, since the mere truth is that '' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from '' in a few words:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have noticed is the inexpensive prices of the shared hosting services provided by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting plans furnished by '' are powered by a custom developed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an autonomous set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have big problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting providers are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must set up their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the webspace hosting price really low (since numerous customers use one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you actually need, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence expands. In this way, you save money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting plan provided by '' arrives with an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. '' furnishes shared website hosting solutions in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire planet is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting service at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts supplied '' are really well appointed and are available at a very cheap price (starting from $3.95 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS may seem troublesome to manage. That's probably why '' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to managing a standard shared web page hosting package via a web hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared packages. When compared with a shared webspace hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not arrive with root-level access (we, at, regard this as a small weakness), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same web space hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting plans. This goes to say that a known graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a virtual web server, yet require more power and reserves than a virtual web hosting server can supply them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from '' have come to the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' anticipations, '' delivers an array of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specs the servers boast: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady performance of any kind of web site. According to '', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server plans provided by '' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each hosting server includes free billing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a small defect, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of webspace hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by '' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
