An assessment of Exclusive Hosting

We, at smr-team.org, have picked 'Exclusive Hosting' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. This is why we consider that this succinct assessment of 'Exclusive Hosting' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Exclusive Hosting' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Exclusive Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at smr-team.org, have discerned is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting solutions furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting plans supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' are powered by a custom invented, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an independent group of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting distributors are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need 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 go back to the shared web hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud web site hosting solution. With a shared plan, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the web site hosting price really low (since numerous users use the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud web space hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web hosting account that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your web page expands. In this way, you spare capital that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each web site hosting account offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' offers an online site building tool and more than forty widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Exclusive Hosting' distributes shared site hosting solutions in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting service at a preferred place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Exclusive Hosting' are really well stocked and are available at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $2.95 for the Exclusive plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may appear problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Exclusive Hosting' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to managing a normal shared package via a web hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free web site builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web space hosting plans. When matched against a shared website hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not offer full root privileges (we, at smr-team.org, think that this is a tiny inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same CP GUI as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This means that a well-known graphical environment is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to handle a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual web server can confer to them. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the very same powerful avant-garde web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Exclusive Hosting' can be classified as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $22.00 for the Rocket plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In smr-team.org's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'Exclusive Hosting' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' needs, 'Exclusive Hosting' provides a bouquet of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and stable work of any sort of site. According to 'Exclusive Hosting', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from smr-team.org, consider that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Exclusive Hosting' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server offers free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Exclusive Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at smr-team.org, deem this a tiny downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (smr-team.org's) prognosis is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (smr-team.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Exclusive Hosting' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the A1 HDD package.
