We, at, have picked '' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we believe that this concise assessment of '' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple fact is that '' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering approximately the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared web space hosting services provided by ''. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts furnished by '' are powered by a custom designed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by a different stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have big troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting suppliers are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to create their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered site hosting system. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the website hosting price really low (because numerous customers utilize the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud webspace hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed need, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end web space hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web space hosting package that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Hence, you spare capital that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still novel. Each and every web hosting package provided by '' ships with an online site builder and more than 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. '' offers shared hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, approximately the entire World is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided '' are quite well stocked and are available at a very good price (starting from €3.13 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may appear hard to handle. That's probably why '' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a normal shared web page hosting account via a web page hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When compared with a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not offer full root privileges (we, at, count this as a slight problem), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a private virtual server can supply them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by '' can be classified as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from '' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' expectations, '' provides an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady performance of any kind of site. In ''s opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specs delivered by '' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of €28.94 EUR. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of website hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by '' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from €62.70 for the Atom 8c plan.
