An assessment of

We, at, have selected '' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we expect that this succinct evaluation of '' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, since the simple fact is that '' currently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting plans supplied by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting plans offered by '' are driven by an in-house devised, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an independent pack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have big complications with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting suppliers are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered website hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (since multiple users are hosted on the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced web hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end website hosting plan that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your web site grows. In this way, you spare cash that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each and every web space hosting account furnished by '' offers an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. '' supplies shared hosting plans in several different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, virtually the entire planet is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting service at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting services provided '' are quite well furnished and come at a very modest price (beginning from $4.20 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a private virtual hosting server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why '' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a standard shared web page hosting account through a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting accounts. When matched against a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not ship with complete root access (we, at, think that this is a tiny drawback), but the plus is that they are managed via the same hosting CP user interface as the shared hosting packages. This signifies that a well-known GUI is available to all users who are not self-confident enough to manage a private virtual web server, yet demand more power and resources than a VPS server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from '' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' needs, '' delivers a collection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of site. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server accounts provided by '' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every web server ships with free invoice transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by '' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
