A survey of 100WebSpace

We, at bustedplay.com, have chosen '100WebSpace' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. This is why we believe that this short assessment of '100WebSpace' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all over the World, since the mere fact is that '100WebSpace' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from '100WebSpace' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at bustedplay.com, have noted is the low-cost prices of the shared webspace hosting services provided by '100WebSpace'. 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 delivered by '100WebSpace' are powered by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a separate group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have big troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web hosting vendors cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered web space hosting system. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the web hosting price really low (because many clients share the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really require, escaping a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web site hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your online presence expands. In this way, you save cash that you can expend on promoting the website while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting account provided by '100WebSpace' contains an online website building tool and more than forty popular script software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design solutions. '100WebSpace' provides shared web site hosting packages in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole World is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting service at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting plans provided '100WebSpace' are really well stocked and come at a very cheap price (beginning from $0.00 for the FREE Hosting package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may appear troublesome to administer. That's probably why '100WebSpace' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a typical shared website hosting package through a webspace hosting CP user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server package is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not arrive with complete root access (we, at bustedplay.com, regard this as a small inconvenience), but the good point is that they are administered through the same Control Panel tool as the shared hosting plans. This indicates that a well-known graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a VPS server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the VPS servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by '100WebSpace' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $55.00 for the Standard plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to bustedplay.com, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful hosting platform. It appears that the folks from '100WebSpace' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' expectations, '100WebSpace' supplies an array of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the fast and stable performance of any kind of website. In '100WebSpace's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from bustedplay.com, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by '100WebSpace' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every web server offers free invoice transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by '100WebSpace' are all unmanaged. We, at bustedplay.com, deem this a little weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade provides an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (bustedplay.com's) forecast is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably make the recourse to any FTP software useless. Our (bustedplay.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by '100WebSpace' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Optimus package.
