We, at, have selected '' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. Hence we think that this concise review of '' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, because the simple fact is that '' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing nearly the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting accounts provided 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 site hosting accounts provided by '' are powered by an in-house created, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an independent pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have considerable complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting firms are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to create their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of customers share one and the same server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed need, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end website hosting plan that you cannot truly use, or for a basic web space hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you economize capital that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Each web hosting account supplied by '' boasts an online site building tool and over forty widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. '' supplies shared web page hosting services in several different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, almost the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts supplied '' are really well equipped and come at a budget price (starting from $4.20 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual server may seem hard to administer. That's perhaps why '' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to administering a regular shared website hosting package through a webspace hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not include root-level access (we, at, regard this as a little defect), but the good point is that they are administered through the same web page hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web site hosting packages. This goes to say that a familiar graphical interface is available to all customers who are not confident enough to manage a virtual web server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a virtual web server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which host the VPS server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the folks from '' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' demands, '' provides a bouquet of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of website. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server packages offered by '' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server comes with free-of-charge invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers offered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any FTP client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
