An assessment of 100WebSpace

We, at cookingsouth.com, have selected '100WebSpace' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this brief assessment of '100WebSpace' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, since the mere fact is that '100WebSpace' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from '100WebSpace' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The first thing we, at cookingsouth.com, have perceived is the low prices of the shared website hosting plans offered 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 web page hosting accounts provided by '100WebSpace' are driven by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a different host of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have huge problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel website hosting vendors are unable to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud hosting platform. With a shared hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the website hosting price very low (because many clients are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud site hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really need, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced web hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic site hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Thus, you economize money that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still new. Every web site hosting package delivered by '100WebSpace' sports an online site builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. '100WebSpace' furnishes shared web site hosting plans in a number of different regions across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, almost the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied '100WebSpace' are very well furnished and are available at a very reasonable price (beginning from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual server may seem troublesome to administer. That's perhaps why '100WebSpace' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a normal shared web space hosting package through a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a fee-free site building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated account is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting plans. When compared with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not offer full root privileges (we, at cookingsouth.com, consider this a minor defect), but the advantage is that they are administered via the very same web space hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This hints that a user-friendly graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a private virtual server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which host the VPS web hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by '100WebSpace' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $55.00 for the Standard package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to cookingsouth.com, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from '100WebSpace' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' requirements, '100WebSpace' provides a collection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. According to '100WebSpace', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from cookingsouth.com, believe that all dedicated server accounts furnished by '100WebSpace' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each server ships with free-of-cost invoicing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at cookingsouth.com, count this as a minor drawback, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of website hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (cookingsouth.com's) forecast is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP software futile. Our (cookingsouth.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $145.00 for the Optimus plan.
