An assessment of Hosting Services

We, at, have chosen 'Hosting Services' to be our current domain and hosting supplier. This is why we presume that this short evaluation of 'Hosting Services' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Hosting Services' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Hosting Services' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at, have detected is the modest prices of the shared site hosting packages furnished by 'Hosting Services'. 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 website hosting accounts provided by 'Hosting Services' are driven by a custom created, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a different set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have colossal problems with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting corporations are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to develop their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the web hosting price very low (because multiple customers utilize the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered webspace hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really need, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a basic webspace hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence grows. In this way, you spare money that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still new. Every web site hosting account provided by 'Hosting Services' sports an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Hosting Services' furnishes shared webspace hosting accounts in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting services offered 'Hosting Services' are really well furnished and are available at a very low price (starting from $4.49 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may seem troublesome to administer. That's perhaps why 'Hosting Services' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a typical shared web page hosting account through a web space hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server package is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting plans. When compared to a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not ship with root-level access (we, at, consider this a slight negative point), but the plus is that they are administered via the same site hosting CP interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This means that a recognizable graphical environment is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to manage a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a VPS hosting server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Hosting Services' can be dubbed as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Hosting Services' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' demands, 'Hosting Services' offers an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the web servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady work of any sort of web site. According to 'Hosting Services', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages offered by 'Hosting Services' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Hosting Services' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight negative point, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Hosting Services' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Atom 1 package.
