A survey of Exclusive Hosting

We, at licomaq.com, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we suppose that this concise assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, because the mere fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at licomaq.com, have noted is the low-cost prices of the shared hosting packages furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting plans furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom built, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an individual set of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have great problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting suppliers are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered hosting system. With a shared site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the hosting price very low (since numerous clients use one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud site hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for a powerful web hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small hosting account that cannot handle your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a small package and upgrade as your site expands. So, you economize money that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still new. Every web hosting package supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' arrives with an online web site builder and over 40 popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers shared site hosting accounts in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, practically the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting service at a preferred place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Exclusive Hosting' are quite well appointed and are available at a budget price (starting from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a regular shared site hosting plan through a web space hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web server plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not come with full server root privileges (we, at licomaq.com, think of this as a tiny weakness), but the good point is that they are managed via the same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting plans. This signifies that a recognizable GUI is offered to all users who are not confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and system resources than a private virtual server can confer to them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server web hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be classified as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Servers

In licomaq.com's opinion, large sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Exclusive Hosting' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' offers a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of website. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from licomaq.com, think that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server ships with free invoice transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at licomaq.com, think of this as a tiny weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (licomaq.com's) prediction is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP software program futile. Our (licomaq.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the A1 HDD package.
