A review of Exclusive Hosting

We, at alfswantex.com, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this short assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing virtually the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at alfswantex.com, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web page hosting solutions supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. 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 website hosting plans furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house designed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a separate set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have enormous troubles with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one and the same server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based website hosting distributors are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by a real clustered web hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the site hosting price very low (since multiple clients are located on one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed require, averting a situation where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic hosting account that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you save funds that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still new. Each web space hosting account offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' includes an online web site builder and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers shared web space hosting solutions in several different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and fast website hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well equipped and come at an affordable price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may appear troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main US data center in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to managing a typical shared web hosting account via a web site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting plan such as a fee-free website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When compared with a shared plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated accounts do not include full server root access (we, at alfswantex.com, count this as a minor minus), but the plus is that they are administered via the same web space hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web page hosting plans. This signifies that a well-known graphical environment is offered to all clients who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual private web server, but at the same time require more power and supplies than a virtual web server can bestow on them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In alfswantex.com's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its users' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a collection of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of web site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from alfswantex.com, believe that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at alfswantex.com, think that this is a little inconvenience, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (alfswantex.com's) forecast is that the magnificent drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our (alfswantex.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
