A survey of Hostadia

We, at mentapimienta.com, have selected 'Hostadia' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Hence we presume that this concise evaluation of 'Hostadia' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Hostadia' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Hostadia' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at mentapimienta.com, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared website hosting services provided by 'Hostadia'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting plans offered by 'Hostadia' are driven by an in-house created, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an autonomous pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have great troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to build their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered site hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the price very low (since numerous customers use one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you spare cash that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still new. Each web hosting account delivered by 'Hostadia' arrives with an online site building tool and more than 40 popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Hostadia' offers shared hosting solutions in a number of different countries across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the whole World is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable website hosting service at a convenient place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans provided 'Hostadia' are very well furnished and come at a budget price (starting from $6.58 for the Starter package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual web hosting server may seem difficult to manage. That's probably why 'Hostadia' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a regular shared package through a web hosting CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared website hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When compared to a shared package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not include full root access (we, at mentapimienta.com, deem this a tiny defect), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same webspace hosting CP interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This suggests that a recognizable graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a private virtual hosting server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Hostadia' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Semi Dedicated 1 package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In mentapimienta.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'Hostadia' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' requirements, 'Hostadia' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of site. According to 'Hostadia', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from mentapimienta.com, think that all dedicated server specs offered by 'Hostadia' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Hostadia' are all unmanaged. We, at mentapimienta.com, regard this as a tiny downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of website hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (mentapimienta.com's) prognosis is that the superb point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (mentapimienta.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Hostadia' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v5 plan.
