An assessment of Universal-Hosting

We, at sittopera.co.za, have selected 'Universal-Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we anticipate that this short assessment of 'Universal-Hosting' is probably going to be very useful for other people from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Universal-Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing practically the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Universal-Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at sittopera.co.za, have detected is the low prices of the shared webspace hosting solutions delivered by 'Universal-Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by 'Universal-Hosting' are driven by an in-house created, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an individual pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have big predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based website hosting suppliers are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must invent their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the hosting price very low (since numerous users are located on the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud website hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for an advanced site hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny website hosting account that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web site expands. Thus, you economize capital that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Each website hosting account offered by 'Universal-Hosting' comprises an online website builder and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Universal-Hosting' furnishes shared web page hosting accounts in several different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, nearly the whole planet is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting solution at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Universal-Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $3.17 for the Entry package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Universal-Hosting' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a regular shared webspace hosting plan through a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web site hosting account such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at sittopera.co.za, regard this as a minor inconvenience), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same web page hosting CP interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This suggests that a known GUI is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a VPS web hosting server can supply them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the private virtual server web hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Universal-Hosting' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $20.00 for the Mercury package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to sittopera.co.za, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Universal-Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' expectations, 'Universal-Hosting' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers boast: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any sort of site. In 'Universal-Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from sittopera.co.za, think that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Universal-Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server ships with free billing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Universal-Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at sittopera.co.za, think of this as a slight negative point, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sittopera.co.za's) prediction is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our (sittopera.co.za's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Universal-Hosting' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $80.00 for the Xeon E3 v3 plan.
