A survey of Exclusive Hosting

We, at asl.pe, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting provider. This is why we anticipate that this short evaluation of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several server farm sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at asl.pe, have noted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web site hosting solutions furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. 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 packages delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom invented, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an autonomous set of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have mammoth difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting providers cannot add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to create their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered web site hosting platform. With a shared website hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the site hosting price amazingly low (because numerous clients are located on one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web space hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small website hosting package that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your website expands. Thus, you spare cash that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each and every web hosting plan delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' contains an online site builder and over forty popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies shared website hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well appointed and come at a very affordable price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may seem troublesome to administer. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a standard shared package via a site hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free website builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated plan is many times greater than that of a shared hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When compared with a shared account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated packages do not come with full server root access (we, at asl.pe, think of this as a slight defect), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same web space hosting CP user interface as the shared web hosting accounts. This suggests that a well-known graphical environment is available to all users who are not confident enough to administer a virtual private web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and features than a virtual private web hosting server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the virtual server web hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the VPS servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In asl.pe's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful hosting solution. It appears that the blokes from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a number of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from asl.pe, believe that all dedicated server specifications provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server comes with free invoice transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at asl.pe, think that this is a minor problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (asl.pe's) prediction is that the remarkable point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any FTP software useless. Our (asl.pe's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the A1 HDD package.
