An evaluation of

We, at, have chosen '' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we believe that this concise evaluation of '' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, because the simple fact is that '' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting packages supplied by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting accounts provided by '' are powered by an in-house built, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have enormous difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting firms are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to construct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered web hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the site hosting price really low (since plenty of users are located on the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting platform, enables you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web hosting plan that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end package and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you economize cash that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Each and every web space hosting plan offered by '' sports an online website builder and over forty popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. '' delivers shared hosting solutions in several different regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, approximately the entire World is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions furnished '' are quite well appointed and are available at a good price (beginning from $3.95 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why '' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to managing a typical shared web page hosting package via a website hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting plan such as a free web site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared plans. When matched against a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not offer complete root-level access (we, at, consider this a tiny downside), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same web page hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web page hosting plans. This suggests that a known graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a virtual server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '' can be defined as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the folks from '' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' requirements, '' provides a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and steady work of any type of website. In ''s opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages supplied by '' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every server offers free-of-charge billing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the great point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c package.
