A survey of

We, at, have picked '' to be our current domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we expect that this brief review of '' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that '' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have seen is the low-cost prices of the shared hosting solutions furnished by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting packages supplied by '' are powered by a custom designed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a separate set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have huge predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting suppliers cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by an actual clustered website hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the website hosting price amazingly low (since lots of customers are hosted on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web page hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web site hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you save funds that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Every web hosting account offered by '' arrives with an online website building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. '' provides shared web site hosting accounts in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, almost the whole World is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts delivered '' are quite well furnished and come at an affordable price (starting from $5.83 for the Startup plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS server may appear problematic to administer. That's perhaps why '' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal United States datacenter in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a normal shared web site hosting package via a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared website hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not arrive with full root privileges (we, at, think of this as a tiny drawback), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared site hosting packages. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a virtual web hosting server, yet require more power and system resources than a virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by '' can be categorized as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $15.01 for the Semi Pro plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online stores with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the folks from '' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' demands, '' delivers a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the web servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any sort of web site. According to '', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server plans supplied by '' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a minor weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade offers several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the magnificent point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
