An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at jonaslucas.com, have picked 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Hence we presume that this succinct review of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in short:

Shared Site Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at jonaslucas.com, have discerned is the budget prices of the shared web page hosting services provided by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting packages furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by an in-house built, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a different bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have mammoth predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel website hosting corporations cannot add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must develop their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine clustered web hosting system. With a shared web space hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus retaining the web site hosting price very low (because multiple users are hosted on the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting system, enables you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a basic web page hosting account that cannot host your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your web page grows. That way, you economize cash that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still new. Each hosting account furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' sports an online site builder and over forty popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers shared website hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, virtually the whole World is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web site hosting service at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Exclusive Hosting' are very well equipped and come at a very low price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may appear complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is comparable to handling a normal shared plan via a hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting plan such as a free website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared site hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated plans do not include full root-level access (we, at jonaslucas.com, think that this is a small disadvantage), but the plus is that they are managed through the same webspace hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting accounts. This signifies that a well-known graphical user interface is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to administer a Virtual Private Server, yet demand more power and system resources than a VPS web server can offer. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which host the private virtual hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be classified as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $22.00 for the Rocket package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to jonaslucas.com, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any type of website. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from jonaslucas.com, deem that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as every hosting server offers free invoicing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at jonaslucas.com, deem this a minor minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee of $32.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of site hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (jonaslucas.com's) prognosis is that the great drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia CP will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (jonaslucas.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
