An assessment of

We, at, have chosen '' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we believe that this concise review of '' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that '' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing practically the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared web hosting packages 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 web hosting packages furnished by '' are driven by an in-house designed, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an independent bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have enormous predicaments with, because cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting distributors are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by a real cloud website hosting system. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price really low (because many customers use the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a high-end web page hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a low-end website hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you save funds that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still new. Each website hosting account supplied by '' comes with an online web site builder and over forty widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. '' distributes shared web page hosting accounts in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, practically the whole World is covered to supply you and your visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting solution at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans delivered '' are quite well equipped and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $3.95 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS web server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why '' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a typical shared web page hosting plan via a web space hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not ship with full root-level access (we, at, think of this as a small minus), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting plans. This goes to say that a well-known GUI is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual hosting server, yet require more power and features than a private virtual server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by '' can be dubbed as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from '' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its users' anticipations, '' provides a collection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware specifications the web servers boast: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and steady performance of any sort of web site. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specs offered by '' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every web server offers free billing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a minor problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
