A survey of Exclusive Hosting

We, at st-develop.com, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. This is why we deem that this short assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing practically the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at st-develop.com, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared hosting packages supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by a custom created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an independent bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel website hosting suppliers are unable to include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the webspace hosting price really low (because a lot of customers are hosted on the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud website hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot host your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your website expands. In this way, you spare funds that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still new. Each web page hosting plan furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' offers an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' furnishes shared hosting accounts in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, almost the whole World is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and dependable web space hosting service at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages offered 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well furnished and come at a very low price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little or no experience, a VPS hosting server may appear problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to administering a normal shared web space hosting account via a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared package such as a fee-free site building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times larger than that of a shared plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting packages. When compared with a shared web space hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server plans do not arrive with root privileges (we, at st-develop.com, count this as a tiny drawback), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting accounts. This implies that a recognizable graphical environment is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a VPS hosting server can provide them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be branded as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to st-develop.com, huge web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' demands, 'Exclusive Hosting' supplies an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers ship with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from st-develop.com, consider that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each hosting server includes free-of-charge billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at st-develop.com, regard this as a tiny negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of web hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (st-develop.com's) prognosis is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (st-develop.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia website hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
