A review of

We, at, have selected '' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. This is why we consider that this succinct assessment of '' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, because the simple truth is that '' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have spotted is the low prices of the shared site hosting plans offered by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting accounts offered by '' are driven by an in-house created, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a different bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have colossal troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web page hosting corporations are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must set up their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered site hosting platform. With a shared web hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the web hosting price amazingly low (since multiple users use one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your web site grows. Hence, you save money that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still new. Each and every hosting package delivered by '' ships with an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. '' provides shared web page hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, virtually the whole World is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans offered '' are quite well equipped and are available at an affordable price (beginning from $3.00 for the Basic plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no experience, a virtual server may appear complicated to handle. That's perhaps why '' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to handling a regular shared site hosting plan through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting plan such as a free website builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared with a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not include root access (we, at, think that this is a slight disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web space hosting CP interface as the shared site hosting packages. This implies that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a VPS, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can offer. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $40.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from '' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' needs, '' supplies a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of website. In ''s opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs supplied by '' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as every web server provides free invoice transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers provided by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $36.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the great point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any FTP client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by '' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $90.00 for the Atom 1 package.
