An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at lanore.id, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. This is why we deem that this brief evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering approximately the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at lanore.id, have observed is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting plans delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting packages delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by a custom invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on an autonomous set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have huge complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web page hosting firms cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic cloud site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price amazingly low (because lots of customers use one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a basic web site hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you save funds that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Each and every web hosting account delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' sports an online website building tool and over forty popular script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' offers shared web space hosting solutions in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire Earth is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web site hosting service at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well stocked and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS web server may appear difficult to manage. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a regular shared web space hosting plan through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared account such as a fee-free website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server package is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web hosting plans. When compared with a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not arrive with root privileges (we, at lanore.id, count this as a minor downside), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web space hosting CP interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical environment is accessible by all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a VPS server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Servers

In lanore.id's opinion, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with 1000s of clients need a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its users' requirements, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the web hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly guarantee the quick and steady performance of any type of site. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from lanore.id, deem that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server offers free billing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at lanore.id, count this as a slight disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (lanore.id's) forecast is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia CP will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (lanore.id's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
