An evaluation of Hosting Services

We, at rig-link.com, have picked 'Hosting Services' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Hence we imagine that this concise assessment of 'Hosting Services' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'Hosting Services' presently provides domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hosting Services' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at rig-link.com, have perceived is the low prices of the shared web space hosting accounts offered by 'Hosting Services'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting accounts delivered by 'Hosting Services' are powered by an in-house built, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an independent stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have mammoth predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting providers are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to devise their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web space hosting price really low (since a lot of clients are located on one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually require, evading a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web site hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web site expands. Hence, you spare capital that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still new. Each site hosting package offered by 'Hosting Services' contains an online web site building tool and over 40 widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Hosting Services' distributes shared web site hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, practically the entire planet is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable web space hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Hosting Services' are quite well furnished and come at a very attractive price (starting from $4.74 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'Hosting Services' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a conventional shared web site hosting account via a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web site hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not come with complete root access (we, at rig-link.com, consider this a little downside), but the plus is that they are administered through the same hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This implies that a well-known graphical interface is accessible by all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS hosting server, yet need more power and resources than a virtual web hosting server can deliver. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Hosting Services' can be labeled as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to rig-link.com, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'Hosting Services' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' requirements, 'Hosting Services' supplies a selection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Hosting Services', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from rig-link.com, deem that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Hosting Services' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each hosting server arrives with free invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Hosting Services' are all unmanaged. We, at rig-link.com, regard this as a minor problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (rig-link.com's) prediction is that the great drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (rig-link.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Hosting Services' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Atom 2c plan.
