An evaluation of Exclusive Hosting

We, at cityfab3d.com, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we deem that this brief assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at cityfab3d.com, have noted is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting packages delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom invented, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an independent stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have big problems with, since cPanel is a single server based hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting vendors are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the site hosting price really low (because many customers use one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting system, allows you to pay just for the resources that you really demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end site hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a low-end hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. That way, you spare cash that you can invest in advertising the site while it is still new. Every webspace hosting plan provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' arrives with an online web site builder and over forty popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' offers shared site hosting plans in several different regions around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, virtually the entire World is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting solution at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a very modest price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a VPS may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to managing a conventional shared site hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting plan such as a fee-free site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting accounts. When matched against a shared hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated packages do not ship with complete server root access (we, at cityfab3d.com, regard this as a little disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web hosting accounts. This hints that a recognizable graphical environment is offered to all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a private virtual web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and features than a VPS server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful hyper-advanced servers as the ones which host the VPS server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In cityfab3d.com's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides a selection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the web servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of website. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from cityfab3d.com, deem that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each server provides free billing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at cityfab3d.com, think of this as a minor disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (cityfab3d.com's) prediction is that the exceptional point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (cityfab3d.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the A1 HDD package.
