An assessment of Hosting-24-7

We, at divingworld.com, have chosen 'Hosting-24-7' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we believe that this brief assessment of 'Hosting-24-7' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Hosting-24-7' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing practically the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hosting-24-7' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at divingworld.com, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared hosting accounts furnished by 'Hosting-24-7'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages offered by 'Hosting-24-7' are powered by a custom created, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a separate stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have enormous troubles with, because cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel site hosting vendors are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to build their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared website hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered web space hosting solution. With a shared website hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the price very low (since lots of clients use one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, averting a situation where you pay for a powerful web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your site expands. In this way, you economize funds that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting package provided by 'Hosting-24-7' comes with an online site building tool and over 40 popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Hosting-24-7' provides shared web page hosting plans in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, nearly the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web hosting solution at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Hosting-24-7' are quite well stocked and are available at a very reasonable price (starting from $2.75 for the Economy plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem hard to administer. That's perhaps why 'Hosting-24-7' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a typical shared web site hosting plan via a site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting packages. When compared with a shared web space hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not arrive with server root access (we, at divingworld.com, deem this a slight problem), but the good point is that they are managed via the same web hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting plans. This suggests that a known graphical interface is accessible by all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a VPS server, yet demand more power and system resources than a virtual private hosting server can supply them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful leading edge servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Hosting-24-7' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to divingworld.com, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'Hosting-24-7' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' anticipations, 'Hosting-24-7' provides a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any type of site. In 'Hosting-24-7's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from divingworld.com, think that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Hosting-24-7' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server ships with free-of-cost billing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Hosting-24-7' are all unmanaged. We, at divingworld.com, think of this as a slight disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of website hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (divingworld.com's) prognosis is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any FTP software pointless. Our (divingworld.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Hosting-24-7' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $75.00 for the Ground package.
