An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at lntellectualventures.com, have selected 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain and hosting provider. This is why we consider that this short review of 'Exclusive Hosting' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing approximately the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Hosting Plans

The initial thing we, at lntellectualventures.com, have seen is the modest prices of the shared hosting solutions furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting accounts provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by an in-house built, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an independent pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have huge predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting distributors are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must build their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud web space hosting solution. With a shared package, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price amazingly low (since lots of customers utilize one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud webspace hosting solution, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, precluding a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting plan delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' boasts an online site builder and over 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' furnishes shared web page hosting solutions in several different regions across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, approximately the entire Globe is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well equipped and are available at a good price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may appear complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a normal shared account through a hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared package such as a free-of-cost website builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server hosting plans do not arrive with root-level access (we, at lntellectualventures.com, count this as a tiny weakness), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same web space hosting CP interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This suggests that a well-known GUI is available to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a private virtual server can offer. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater 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 labeled as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Servers

In lntellectualventures.com's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' requirements, 'Exclusive Hosting' offers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from lntellectualventures.com, think that all dedicated server plans offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server provides free billing software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at lntellectualventures.com, deem this a tiny weak point, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (lntellectualventures.com's) forecast is that the amazing point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program pointless. Our (lntellectualventures.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
