A review of WebHost-ing.com

We, at sterling.xyz, have picked 'WebHost-ing.com' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we think that this brief evaluation of 'WebHost-ing.com' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'WebHost-ing.com' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'WebHost-ing.com' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at sterling.xyz, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared web page hosting solutions supplied by 'WebHost-ing.com'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts furnished by 'WebHost-ing.com' are powered by a custom created, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an independent host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have colossal problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting vendors are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are driven by a real cloud web hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web hosting price amazingly low (because many users share one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud website hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the resources that you indeed need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small web page hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a low-end package and upgrade as your web page grows. Thus, you save capital that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still new. Each web hosting account offered by 'WebHost-ing.com' offers an online web site building tool and more than 40 popular script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'WebHost-ing.com' furnishes shared web hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, virtually the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting solution at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting services delivered 'WebHost-ing.com' are very well stocked and come at a good price (starting from $3.95 for the Starter plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'WebHost-ing.com' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to administering a regular shared plan through a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting account such as a free web site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared plans. When juxtaposed to a shared site hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated packages do not arrive with server root access (we, at sterling.xyz, think that this is a tiny drawback), but the plus is that they are managed through the same web hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared website hosting plans. This implies that a known graphical user interface is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to manage a VPS web server, yet are in need of more power and reserves than a VPS web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'WebHost-ing.com' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In sterling.xyz's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the blokes from 'WebHost-ing.com' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' needs, 'WebHost-ing.com' delivers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the web servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the fast and steady work of any sort of site. In 'WebHost-ing.com's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from sterling.xyz, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'WebHost-ing.com' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every web server includes free billing transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'WebHost-ing.com' are all unmanaged. We, at sterling.xyz, regard this as a small downside, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides various extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sterling.xyz's) prediction is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP client pointless. Our (sterling.xyz's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'WebHost-ing.com' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
