An evaluation of Exclusive Hosting

We, at depression.gr, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we expect that this short assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing nearly the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at depression.gr, have noticed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web site hosting accounts supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. 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 site hosting accounts offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a different host of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have colossal complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting distributors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to develop their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an actual clustered hosting system. With a shared account, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus keeping the hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of customers are hosted on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web space hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the resources that you indeed demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web space hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you economize money that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting plan offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' comes with an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies shared web space hosting plans in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and reliable hosting service at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well appointed and come at a very inexpensive price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a typical shared package through a site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting plan such as a free site builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared plans. When compared to a shared plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not ship with server root access (we, at depression.gr, think of this as a tiny problem), but the good point is that they are managed via the very same web site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared website hosting accounts. This suggests that a known graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a virtual web server, yet demand more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In depression.gr's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' requirements, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a collection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of website. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from depression.gr, think that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each server provides free-of-charge billing software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at depression.gr, deem this a small minus, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bunch of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of webspace hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (depression.gr's) prediction is that the magnificent drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (depression.gr's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the A1 HDD package.
