A survey of

We, at, have selected '' to be our current domain and hosting provider. Therefore we believe that this short assessment of '' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that '' presently offers domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have detected is the cut-rate prices of the shared web site hosting accounts furnished 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 page hosting packages delivered by '' are powered by an in-house designed, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an individual pack of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have huge difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by one single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting providers are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (since a lot of clients use one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really require, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a basic web space hosting package that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your web presence grows. So, you economize funds that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Each and every webspace hosting account supplied by '' contains an online site builder and more than forty popular script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. '' offers shared hosting solutions in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting service at a preferred location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages provided '' are quite well equipped and come at a very attractive price (beginning from $3.25 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why '' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to administering a typical shared website hosting account via a Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared package such as a fee-free site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting accounts. When compared to a shared account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, count this as a small weakness), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This means that a known GUI is available to all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual private hosting server, yet require more power and system resources than a private virtual web server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '' can be categorized as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from '' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' requirements, '' delivers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of website. According to '', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server configurations provided by '' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server comes with free invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers furnished by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a tiny drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by '' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
