A survey of 100WebSpace

We, at musicolio.com, have picked '100WebSpace' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we believe that this brief assessment of '100WebSpace' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that '100WebSpace' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from '100WebSpace' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at musicolio.com, have seen is the cheap prices of the shared web site hosting accounts delivered by '100WebSpace'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans provided by '100WebSpace' are driven by a custom created, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a different bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have great complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting providers cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by a real clustered website hosting system. With a shared account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the web space hosting price very low (since plenty of users utilize one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web page hosting platform, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you actually require, averting a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small site hosting package that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. That way, you spare money that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting account supplied by '100WebSpace' comprises an online web site building tool and more than forty popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design services. '100WebSpace' supplies shared web site hosting services in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. That way, practically the entire Earth is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting solution at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions offered '100WebSpace' are quite well stocked and come at an affordable price (starting from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS server may appear troublesome to administer. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its principal American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a typical shared web hosting package through a CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting account such as a free website builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not ship with complete server root access (we, at musicolio.com, count this as a minor downside), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared website hosting plans. This goes to say that a familiar graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to manage a VPS web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual hosting server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by '100WebSpace' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $55.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Servers

In musicolio.com's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from '100WebSpace' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' requirements, '100WebSpace' supplies an assortment of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of web site. According to '100WebSpace', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from musicolio.com, consider that all dedicated server accounts provided by '100WebSpace' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every web server includes free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at musicolio.com, think that this is a slight minus, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of site hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (musicolio.com's) forecast is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our (musicolio.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $145.00 for the Optimus plan.
