An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at sonicsurgery.ie, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we expect that this succinct assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, because the simple truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing almost the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at sonicsurgery.ie, have observed is the budget prices of the shared website hosting solutions supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting packages offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house developed, avant-garde cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by an autonomous set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web hosting platform. With a shared site hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the hosting price really low (because numerous customers are located on the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web site hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you actually demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced website hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you economize money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting account supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' boasts an online site builder and over 40 popular script-driven software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies shared webspace hosting accounts in several different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, practically the entire Globe is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well stocked and come at a budget price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may appear difficult to administer. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to administering a typical shared webspace hosting plan through a CP GUI. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting account such as a fee-free site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not come with complete root access (we, at sonicsurgery.ie, regard this as a little problem), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same CP interface as the shared plans. This suggests that a recognizable GUI is accessible by all customers who are not confident enough to administer a VPS hosting server, yet demand more power and system resources 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 reserves of the very same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to sonicsurgery.ie, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online stores with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' requirements, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the fast and steady work of any type of website. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from sonicsurgery.ie, consider that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server ships with free billing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at sonicsurgery.ie, think that this is a minor weakness, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sonicsurgery.ie's) forecast is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (sonicsurgery.ie's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the A1 HDD package.
