An evaluation of

We, at, have chosen '' to be our present domain and hosting supplier. This is why we imagine that this short assessment of '' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that '' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting plans 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 hosting accounts offered by '' are powered by a custom devised, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by a separate stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have considerable troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to devise their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared site hosting package, each client pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the price very low (since a lot of users are located on one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. So, you spare funds that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still new. Every website hosting plan delivered by '' comes with an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design services. '' provides shared website hosting plans in several different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, practically the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions delivered '' are really well furnished and are available at an affordable price (starting from $4.20 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS web server may appear hard to administer. That's probably why '' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main US data center facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a conventional shared site hosting account via a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared website hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not offer full server root access (we, at, think that this is a minor inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are managed via the same web site hosting CP interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This indicates that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can bestow on them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '' can be branded as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from '' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' demands, '' supplies a number of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of site. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations offered by '' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers an assortment of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web page hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by '' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
