A review of

We, at, have chosen '' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. This is why we imagine that this succinct assessment of '' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that '' currently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from '' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared site hosting plans provided by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans provided by '' are driven by a custom devised, modern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an individual bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have big problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting providers are unable to include 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 basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the hosting price very low (because lots of users utilize the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really need, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end webspace hosting package that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a basic plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. In this way, you spare cash that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Each web page hosting plan supplied by '' offers an online web site builder and over forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. '' distributes shared web page hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. In this way, practically the whole planet is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting plans provided '' are quite well equipped and are available at a very inexpensive price (starting from $3.00 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual web server may seem troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why '' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to handling a normal shared webspace hosting plan through a web space hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared packages. When matched against a shared site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not arrive with complete root-level access (we, at, deem this a slight inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same site hosting CP user interface as the shared web space hosting accounts. This suggests that a known GUI is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a private virtual web server can furnish them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the virtual private web 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 offered by '' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from '' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' requirements, '' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of website. In ''s opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages delivered by '' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server provides free-of-charge billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers provided by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly make the use of any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by '' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $115.00 for the Xeon Scalable 6c plan.
