An assessment of

We, at, have selected '' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we think that this concise review of '' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the mere truth is that '' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from '' in short:

Shared Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting solutions furnished by ''. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans offered by '' are driven by an in-house built, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by an individual host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have mammoth problems with, since cPanel is a single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based 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 must make their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared site hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price amazingly low (because lots of clients use one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web site hosting account that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. So, you spare cash that you can expend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Each webspace hosting plan delivered by '' comprises an online web site builder and more than forty popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. '' furnishes shared hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, practically the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans supplied '' are very well appointed and come at a very good price (starting from €3.16 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem tough to handle. That's probably why '' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to handling a standard shared site hosting account through a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting account such as a free website builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server account is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When compared with a shared web space hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not ship with complete root access (we, at, think of this as a little problem), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web hosting CP GUI as the shared webspace hosting packages. This indicates that a familiar graphical environment is available to all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can offer. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from €19.23 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful site hosting environment. It appears that the guys from '' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' demands, '' offers a selection of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the hosting servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of site. In ''s opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs furnished by '' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as every hosting server offers free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by '' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small weakness, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to €29.14 EUR. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by '' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from €78.18 for the Xeon E3 v5 package.
