An evaluation of

We, at, have chosen '' to be our present domain and web hosting provider. This is why we think that this succinct evaluation of '' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, because the simple truth is that '' currently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have spotted is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting accounts supplied by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting plans supplied by '' are driven by a custom invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have considerable problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting vendors are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered website hosting platform. With a shared web hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the web hosting price very low (since a lot of users are located on one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny plan and upgrade as your site expands. So, you spare cash that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting plan offered by '' comprises an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. '' distributes shared website hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, virtually the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans supplied '' are quite well appointed and come at an affordable price (beginning from $4.20 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no experience, a virtual hosting server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why '' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main American data center in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to administering a normal shared site hosting package via a web hosting CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared plan such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server accounts do not include root-level access (we, at, think that this is a slight minus), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared web site hosting packages. This goes to say that a familiar graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a private virtual web hosting server, yet demand more power and resources than a VPS can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by '' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful website hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from '' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' expectations, '' delivers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers come with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of website. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs offered by '' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers offered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of web space hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the great drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by '' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
