An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at gate5.se, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting provider. This is why we imagine that this short assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing practically the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at gate5.se, have detected is the affordable prices of the shared web space hosting packages supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting packages provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom developed, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an independent set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have immense problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting firms cannot add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to create their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud web space hosting platform. With a shared account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the website hosting price amazingly low (since lots of customers are located on one and the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really require, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced web site hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot shelter your web site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you economize cash that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each web hosting package provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' contains an online website building tool and over forty widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' distributes shared webspace hosting packages in several different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European data centers - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable webspace hosting service at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at a very cheap price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS web server may appear complicated to administer. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to administering a conventional shared website hosting package through a site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared web site hosting account such as a fee-free website building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting packages. When compared to a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not ship with full server root privileges (we, at gate5.se, consider this a tiny minus), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same Control Panel GUI as the shared site hosting plans. This implies that a known graphical environment is offered to all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a VPS web hosting server can provide them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful cutting edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In gate5.se's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' demands, 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of web site. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from gate5.se, consider that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server ships with free invoicing software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at gate5.se, think of this as a small downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (gate5.se's) forecast is that the excellent drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (gate5.se's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
