A survey of 100WebSpace

We, at crashingthegoalie.com, have selected '100WebSpace' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we presume that this succinct evaluation of '100WebSpace' is probably going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that '100WebSpace' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '100WebSpace' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at crashingthegoalie.com, have observed is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting plans delivered by '100WebSpace'. 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 web hosting packages furnished by '100WebSpace' are powered by a custom invented, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an individual stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have mammoth difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting providers are unable to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to set up their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the hosting price amazingly low (because a lot of users are hosted on one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered website hosting solution, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed require, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot accommodate your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your website expands. In this way, you economize funds that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still new. Every webspace hosting plan offered by '100WebSpace' comprises an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web design services. '100WebSpace' furnishes shared site hosting services in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European data centers - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, almost the whole Globe is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting solution at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans supplied '100WebSpace' are quite well equipped and are available at a very attractive price (beginning from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a private virtual server may seem troublesome to manage. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a regular shared web space hosting package through a web site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When compared to a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not arrive with root privileges (we, at crashingthegoalie.com, think that this is a tiny minus), but the plus is that they are administered via the same website hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web page hosting accounts. This goes to say that a known graphical environment is accessible by all users who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual private web hosting server can furnish them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $55.00 for the Standard plan.

Dedicated Servers

In crashingthegoalie.com's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web hosting platform. It appears that the folks from '100WebSpace' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its users' requirements, '100WebSpace' provides an assortment of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of website. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from crashingthegoalie.com, think that all dedicated server packages delivered by '100WebSpace' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server comes with free billing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at crashingthegoalie.com, count this as a slight weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides several additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (crashingthegoalie.com's) prognosis is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP software pointless. Our (crashingthegoalie.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $145.00 for the Optimus package.
