A survey of Hostomedia

We, at researchdepository.com, have picked 'Hostomedia' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. Hence we consider that this brief evaluation of 'Hostomedia' is perchance going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Hostomedia' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering approximately the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hostomedia' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at researchdepository.com, have noticed is the low prices of the shared web page hosting accounts offered by 'Hostomedia'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages provided by 'Hostomedia' are powered by a custom built, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an autonomous set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have colossal troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting distributors are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to develop their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic cloud site hosting system. With a shared package, each client pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the hosting price really low (because plenty of users use the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web page hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a low-end package and upgrade as your website grows. That way, you save cash that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still brand new. Each hosting plan offered by 'Hostomedia' arrives with an online site builder and over forty widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Hostomedia' provides shared hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Hostomedia' are really well appointed and are available at a very good price (starting from $2.75 for the Standard plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may seem problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Hostomedia' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a regular shared webspace hosting account through a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting account such as a free web site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared plans. When compared to a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not offer root-level access (we, at researchdepository.com, consider this a little minus), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared hosting plans. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all customers who are not confident enough to manage a VPS web server, yet require more power and reserves than a virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful high-end servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private hosting server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Hostomedia' can be defined as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $20.00 for the CPU Luxe package.

Dedicated Servers

According to researchdepository.com, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Hostomedia' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Hostomedia' provides a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the web servers have: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'Hostomedia', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from researchdepository.com, think that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Hostomedia' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server arrives with free billing software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Hostomedia' are all unmanaged. We, at researchdepository.com, deem this a slight downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (researchdepository.com's) forecast is that the amazing point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (researchdepository.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Hostomedia' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Atom 1 plan.
