An evaluation of Exclusive Hosting

We, at adsec.net, have chosen 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this concise review of 'Exclusive Hosting' is probably going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a few words:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at adsec.net, have noted is the inexpensive prices of the shared web site hosting packages delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are driven by a custom created, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an autonomous pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have enormous problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting firms cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to create their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine cloud hosting solution. With a shared plan, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since many customers are hosted on one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really require, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. That way, you economize capital that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting package provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' comprises an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' provides shared webspace hosting services in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, practically the entire Earth is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting services supplied 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at an affordable price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual hosting server may appear problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'Exclusive Hosting' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a conventional shared webspace hosting package through a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a free web site builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared packages. When matched against a shared site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not include complete root access (we, at adsec.net, deem this a minor defect), but the good point is that they are administered via the same site hosting CP interface as the shared web hosting plans. This implies that a well-known GUI is available to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS web server, but at the same time require more power and features than a virtual web server can give them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful cutting edge web servers as the ones which host the private virtual web hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In adsec.net's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Exclusive Hosting' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' expectations, 'Exclusive Hosting' delivers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of web site. In 'Exclusive Hosting's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from adsec.net, think that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server includes free invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at adsec.net, regard this as a minor weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $32.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (adsec.net's) prognosis is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia CP will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our (adsec.net's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the A1 HDD plan.
